    If your not using the Homegroup feature to connect your computers, you ca disable

    Please don't take my modification as a perfect rule.

    You can do this at your own risk

    Create a Restore Point before attempting any modifications

    Homegroup Listener
    Homegroup provider
    Application Experience
    Application information
    Diagnostic policy service
    Diagnostic service host
    Diagnostic system Host
    Parental Controls
    Remote registry
    smart card
    smart card removal policy
    Tablet PC Input Service (this has to be disabled by going to Start > Run, and type optionalfeatures.exe)
    Windows backup
    Windows Error Reporting service
    Windows Defender
    Window Firewall (if you have a personal firewall or anti-virus program that has a firewall as well)l

    I have also set many services to Manual, but that's a huge listing.
