Windows 7: Dedicate acer as htpc

Win 7 ultimate x32
Dedicate acer as htpc

Hi everyone first post on here.
I have a few questions someone may be able to help with.
1 Is it possible to run media centre with out running win 7, i know you can get media centre to start when windows starts but is it possible to run media centre on its own.The laptop i have has only got 2 gig ram so i was hoping not to have to many background resources running.
2 If it is not possible, what services is it safe to turn off but still keep media centre running.
3 This system will be used only for media not worried about email, fax,printer ect only for playig movies, tv catch up and mp3s

Any help would be great thanks
