I would like to find a guide that lists which services and programs that can be disabled to help harden your Operating System for security reasons. I recently bought a book to start studying for Comptia Security+ and it discusses this a little bit. I would like to find more information on this and see if there is a guide for even newbies.

Hi DEATHlLINK,

Here's a couple I've found useful:
How to get Bullet Proof Windows (Harden MS Windows Vista or 7).
Black Viper



Also, some threads from Wilders [For advanced users]:

SuRun: Easily running Windows XP as a limited user (the benefits of LUA)
Maximising Windows XP security with LUA and SRP
Maximising Windows VISTA security with LUA and SRP (even without ultimate)
Maximising Windows 7 security with SRP under LUA (whatever the win7 version)
AppLocker implementation (How to set it up.)
Tested: Make IE8 the safest webbrowser
