I have always wondered why you disable all of those services. I mean, antivirus I understand (there's a significant performance decrease for that sort of inline checking) but most of these things improve the system's functionality with truly negligible cost.

That said, if your desktop works the way you want it without them, that's fair enough.

Out of curiosity: With BITS disabled, do you need to check for Windows updates automatically or does it just turn off their downloading in the background?
