Re: Windows XP Services Best Practice



Vic,

I think you can use the NIST Security Configuration Checklists Repository, specifically

Windows XP Security Guide
http://checklists.nist.gov/repository/1007.html

Windows XP Security Checklist

Windows 2003/XP/2000 Addendum

Subject: Windows XP Services Best Practice


Anyone has a useful link with with information about what XP Pro SP2 services should be "disabled" on enterprise desktops according to "best" practice? Basically I'm looking for something that has the service name, functionality, security implication, and best practice recommendation. Desktop users are only running an office suite.

TIA
