Windows Services not required for Domino?

I’m about to introduce a new server into our infrastructure, and this one is going to be totally dedicated to Domino, and running on a Windows 2003 platform. That said, I went looking for recommendations on what services in Windows I can completely disable in order to improve the performance of Domino without affecting the stability of the OS, or of Domino.

Reading through the scant few resources available, I came up with this list. Can anyone add anything to it?
