    You can disable any service that you are certain you aren't using. Just keep track of what you disable in case something you need stops working.

    And some services depend on others to work.

    Hi,

    If your usage and requirements are as you have described, then I would suggest that you leave well alone. You will not improve anything, and risk screwing everything up.

    What I would ask you, is why you asked the question in the first place? I guess that something is not working to your satisfaction?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
