I prefer to run my PCs with as few apps and features as possible. My logic is: fewer apps, fewer files to scan, less memory use, quicker startup, and fewer malware risks. Consequently, would it do any good to turn off the Windows features I never use? In particular, I have no need for Windows Media Center, Windows FAX and Scan, or Windows Gadget Platform. Would turning off these features reduce RAM utilization, speed startup, etc? If I do turn any of them off, is there anything I should do before turning them back on again?
