I have a windows 2008 R2 domain but most of the clients are WINXP. I'm trying to create a policy to disable certain winxp services from running but I notice that those services don't exist on the win 2008 group policy. So how can i disable those services on all the workstations. There are 400 computers and I need to disable alerter, help and content, indexing service, and a few others. I do not want to do this by hand. IS there a place where I can download winxp services ADMX templates?

    Install GPMC in XP workstation and create or configure the Group Policy from there.

    You can edit the GPO on the XP client. You will not be able to change any preference settings but you can change the services.
