Thank you for sharing this list. It seems one of the above services being disabled is preventing Windows 10 from updating successfully (in my case, from build 1703 15063.504, to 1703 15063.608)
Error transcript (Event Log): "Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800F0922: Security Update for Windows (KB4038788)".
After restoring default service configuration (, I was then able to complete the update successfully.

Edit: the service which should not be disabled in this case was:

REM App Readiness
sc config AppReadiness start=disabled

Then, i passed hours reading each service explanation in "services.msc", and choosing disabling it. Now i ran this script and i freed some weight of a computer in about 0.4 seconds, thanks to Mr. 2510. Maybe i will fork it to add some services to disable. I learned how to automate a basic serviceman task with your script. Thanks for sharing!!!!
