I use windows server 2016 with the following
1. rabbitMqQ
2. c# console app which takes data from TCP connection, saves to rabbitMQ
3. another C# app which post data to another server over port 80

I need to remove anything that isn't needed from the server
Its mostly a basic install, but i also see File and Storage Services, and wanted to know if I can remove this
I also see things like Spooler SubSytem App running, so wanted to know is there a list of stuff i can remove from this server?

its publicly facing, but RDP is locked to certain IP's
