Result; a lot of harddisk access and Windows 7 running slower then neccessary.
My XP installation had 19 services running and harddisk acces was much less because of that.
Now I have switched off some things like the indexing service, I have disabled the media center stuff, but was wondering if there are more services which can be disabled.
May be other users can add there experiences on this part of Windows 7 to this topic which can be helpfull for others?

Okay, then I will start with the list of disabled services as I am using my Windows 7 beta now.
I do have a normal install, so no vlited installation or something like that.
Disabled services at the moment:
- function discovery provider host
- home group provider
- function discovery resource publication
- offline files
- ssdp discovery
- uPnP device host
- windows search
- win http web proxy auto discovery
- computer browser
- dns client
- diagnostic policy services
- tcp/ip netbios helper
- distributed link tracking agent
- dhcp client
- ip helper
28 services running after boot, inclusive NVidia driver and AVG virusscanner services.
No unneeded harddisk access on background, no indexing etc... and performance about the same as XP.
Other people with more recommendations may be?
