Where you can effect this is by disabling msconfig>Startup entries. No MS service needed for Startup is included in Win7 Startup list. I turn off everything except AV and gadgets. All of the others are freeloaders on startup time, RAM, CPU and can spy on you.

If you want to know what an item is, expand the borders of the Command heading and it shoudl become apparent, or else google it.

I would NOT turn off Services in Win7 which has everything not needed at Startup set to Manual. As beta testers learned the hard way, turning off networking or security services not thought to be needed have unintended consequences.

Also, as beta testers who were masters at optimizing and tweaking in XP and early Vista also found out, tweaking programs like Boost Speed are not useful at all in Win7 which is already as lean and optimized as can be. This is not XP and applying XP methods will run you into a ditch sooner rather than later.
