Windows Theme Service
I prefer to disable the themes service on all machines. It will free up some memory and improve performance on most machines. Below is the XML file to do so.
<package id="theme_service" name="Theme Servce" revision="1" reboot="false" execute="once" priority="5"> <install cmd='sc config themes start= disabled' > <exit code="any" /> </install> <install cmd='net stop themes' > <exit code="any" /> </install> </package>
