RE: Windows XP Services Best Practice



-----Original Message-----
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.

I know of this website which does a decent job at explaining what each
service does:
http://www.dead-eye.net/WinXP%20Services.htm
Nothing relevant to security implications specifically, but it's a start I
guess. Point in case, there's actually few services that are vitals, and a
quite a few that are completely useless.
What would be nice is a security configuration wizard like the one found in
Windows Server 2003 SP1.
