    Sounds like a plan. It will be interesting to discuss why our three counts differ.

    In case you don't know the following command:

    GSV Spooler|Select RequiredServices, DependentServices

    It will show the services needed by Spooler and the services dependent on Spooler.

    The above Chinese article says that disabling "DNS Client" can prevent cyber-attacks, protecting privacy.

    It is the knock on affect of Disabling a Service that can be MORE important than the Service itself.

    I did initially look at the DNS Client. Its Dependencies are the Network Store Interface Service and the Network Connectivity Assistant. The FIRST one has a further DOZEN or more Dependants, which is one of the reasons that it was EXCLUDED in my Project.

    The following services are absent from my Windows 10 Version 20H2.

    Computer Browser
    Help and Support
    HomeGroup Listener
    HomeGroup Provider
    Multimedia Class Scheduler
    Tablet PC Input Service
    Windows CardSpace
    Windows Live Sign-in Assistant

    Do they exist on your Windows 10?

    AMENDMENT:

    I know it has been a while, but I thought that I would Update this thread for anybody following it as I came across a problem, well sort of.

    Although the below does NOT affect things, if you goto . . .

    > Control Panel > System > System Protection > System Protection [ Tab ]

    . . . under the Protection Settings, it will constantly show as Searching [ if you used my Script Commands ] . . .

    Project: Which Services can be Disabled WITHOUT Drastic Impact.-system_restore.png

    To correct this, you will need to change the Services Script Commands to . . .

    Code:
    
    sc start swprv >nul & sc config swprv start=demand
    sc start VSS >nul & sc config VSS start=demand
    swprv = Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider
    VSS = Volume Shadow Copy

    . . . Then Sign Out and Sign In and it will work.

    Project: Which Services can be Disabled WITHOUT Drastic Impact.-systemsettings-buffer-overrun.png

    SystemSettings.exe - System Error
    The system detected an overrun of a stack-based buffer in this
    application. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious
    user to gain control of this application.
    This system error can happen when clicking 'Phone' or 'Privacy' in 'Windows-Settings' if the 'Microsoft Store-Installation service' is disabled. This service should at least be set Manual.

    I noticed that behaviour after installing the November update kb5032189.
