erm... yes they can.

Start->Run "services.msc"

All the describes services can be disabled here. However some of those (namely RPC locator) are required for some programs. For example, most .NET programs use Remote Procedure calls (even locally) and thus require the RPC locator to be running.


personally, I just leave all this to my hardware firewall.
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

Adding to BC's....open ports (by user's choice, or by some programs' needs are fine, as long, as they're made stealth by a firewall.

For some wierd reason, when I tried to block inbound TCP on my CA Suite's firewall, the security center says that the firewall hasn't been installed, yet I can access it via the task bar (on the CA Suite icon).

As soon as it expires, I'm ditching it. It absolutely sucks, but I'm not wasting money.
