Good Post! - I know there are Anti-Windows Spying programs out there that will do this for you, but with most of them I discovered, they end / stop to many things with no option to not allow them to be stopped. Such as - Windows Hello, access to certain features that I like. One good site to check out which is very informative regarding Windows Services. I have learned a lot from this site and stopped many useless, invasive Windows Services - Check it out - Home | Black Viper | www.blackviper.com
