What services can be safely stopped depends on detailed knowledge of your system and configuration. But why do you wish to do this? Services should only be stopped or modified if you have a good reason and understand what you are doing. If you are hoping to improve performance you will likely be disappointed. Unless a service is causing a problem or your system is seriously short on memory stopping services will avail you very little.

If you can provide some details on what you are trying to accomplish we should be able to help.
