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.

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)
