-if you need it, or something you do need is depending on it, leave it be
-if you dont need it, check its settings
*if its on automatic, put it on manual, so programs can still "start" it when needed (for example, spoolserv, if you dont print ever... you dont use it ever, or the home group thing, firewall, windows defender )
*if its on manual, yet still started, some other service or program (that is depending on it) started it when they needed it.. only if you are REALLY REALLY sure you dont need a service, you can just disable it.
i did it like that, and currently i have windows 7, with 45 processes running, whilst im typing this.
heres a view on the windows services that are currently NOT runnign on my system
voila, now you can make absolutely sure that system resources arent taken by stuff you dont use
