Disabling services is obviously very subjective and dependant on your personal situation and business needs. Take a look at the following articles which suggest some services you can set to disabled. However, no 1 site is the same so pick and choose wisely.

See articles for ideas:

Also read this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc995076.aspx

Also read: http://www.mydigitallife.info/windows-vista-and-server-2008-services-optimization-with-batch-command-script-optimizer/

And also just for info: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askperf/archive/2008/11/18/disabling-unnecessary-services-a-word-to-the-wise.aspx

Hope these help

I would run the Security Configuration Wizard which will give you a proposed list of services to change/disable
