Windows 7 services unexpectedly started in Manual mode
hi Windows 7 folks
as i intend to load run a few large virtual machines on my Windows 7 laptop with only 4 GB memory, i am trying to optimise Windows by stopping those unnecessary Windows services to free up more memory. by default, Windows 7 occupies 1.5 GB memory after a restart, before loading any other applications. in the XP age on the same computer, only less than 400 MB memory was used, accordingly.
i notice that some Windows services, as listed below, are still started even i have changed their Start Type to Manual.
* Application Experience
* Background Intelligent Transfer Service
* SSDP Discovery
* TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
as shown in the Dependencies tab of these services' Properties, there are no loaded system components depending on these services. moreover, it seems neither item listed under the Startup options of MSCONFIG is associated with these services. therefore, i am curious about how these services are started.
FYI - all started services are listed in the Code section.
any clues? thanks in advance.

however, the BlackViper's service configuration guide, which was also suggested by lamaslany, is a great help.
any specific tool (or the CSV file for W7) could be available??
