Hi Genxie and welcome
In win 7 (as in vista) you want to stop services by using services.msc not msconfig. Servises is global but msconfig is user based. In services.msc you can block anything you want but 6 months down the line may forget that XX isnt running.
If you need a site to look at what service does what in win 7, there is alwasy black vipers.
