I recommend blackvipre.com to determine which process's to stop.
He has spreadsheets on the different flavors of windows and which process's
you can disable for different reasons. Black Viper's Website
is his site and very highly rated.
But the caution is always to have a good image of your drive for when the wheels fall off and you end up in the garbage because you disabled the wrong process.
