I found that the excellent (but currently defunct) blackviper.com is
being mirrored here:

http://kye-u.hopto.org/mirror/blackviper/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

This page can tell you lots of things about what services you need, don't
need, etc.

Personally, I never let anything connect that doesn't need to. Windows
2000/XP come with all kinds of services that not only want to connect to
the Internet, but are not at all needed by a home user. Blackviper tells
you which ones are safe to disable.
