asked on 

windows 7 home premium

i have windows 7 home premium and was poking around in the services and saw the server service, and thought that i bet i don't need it. it looks like it's for sharing resources. i have a stand alone pc, and can't think of a reason i would want to share anything. in fact, sharing resources sounds like a potential security problem.
is it safe to disable this service?

But you can also set it to manual, to see if it causes issues.
