    Disabling Services via GPO

    Does anyone disable unneccessary services via GPO for their windows 7 domain PC's?

    I came across this guys site which lists how he set up his services:
    » Windows 7: Disable Unnecessary Services on a Domain Workstation

    But I wanted to ask here if there are any memory hoggers or security holes that can be plugged by disabling a few services via GPO.

    Cheers
