    Server and Wokstation Services


    I have a non-networked PC that is connected to the internet. Can I disable the services Workstation and Server without any negative effects?
    Thanks

    Most definitely if you wish. If you don't plan on running IIS or XAMPP or any web platforms etc, then it's not a problem.
