You don't "delete" them, as such: you run the Services control panel (Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services) to modify whether they're running or not. If you double-click a service in the list and set its Startup Type to Disabled, it won't load and therefore won't occupy any memory or CPU cycles. Be very sure the service in question isn't vital to the operation of the system before you try this!

I want to delete the settings altogether.  I remeber doing this once through the registry editor in NT 4.  If you know where these settings are please inform.

Most services support a '-remove' command line switch (though deleting them from 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services' should also work, but I don't recommend this). So, get the location of the executable from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<service short name>\ImagePath, cd to that directory and type

<exename> -remove
