I've recently reduced the number of start-up items via MSCONFIG. Now I find there are no fewer than 130 services listed under "Services," 90 of which are "running"

How can I discover how many of these are necessary ?

Go to Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Service Configurations by Black Viper there is a lot of good info about services there. Click on the services in his list and it will open a new window explaining what it is and if you need it or not.
