I'm working on an updated workstation installation guide and I want to refine my list of services that should be disabled. Here is my list, is there anything you think should be added or removed?

1) Alerter
2) ClipBook
3) Computer Browser (Except Servers)
4) Fax Service
5) Indexing Service (also remove in control panel add/remove programs)
6) Internet Connection Sharing
7) Messenger
8) Netmeeting Remote Desktop Sharing
9) Network DDE
10) Network DDE DSDM
11) Performance Logs and Alerts
12) Protected Storage
13) SmartCard
14) SmartCard Helper
15) TCP/IP Netbios Helper Service (Except Servers)
16) Telnet
17) Uninterruptable Power Supply
18) Utility Manager

I actually use the remote registry service to do software inventories so I left that out.
