What is minimum number of services needed to run as a server?

We are using one of our computers to use as a MineCraft server. It will be hooked up to the Internet so its IP is accessible. Firstly, what Windows services can I disable at startup since we won't be using it for anything other than as a server? Secondly, what precautions should I take to keep hackers out? Thx.

  1. Have a look at the services list @ www.blackviper.com
  2. hold alt, type msconfig and untick everything you dont need

    for starters you definatly dont need bluetooth on a server and you dont want bitlocker (its crap anyway, tried it)
