Guidance on disabling system services on windows server 2019

New Contributor
I am looking for recommended system services that should be or ok to disable in windows server 2019.

Earlier last week i saw that the following link has a note that it applies to windows server 2019 as well but today it is changed to only applies to windows server 2016 with desktop experience and some of the services recommendation is changed from ok to disable to no guidance.

for example:

CNG Key Isolation
COM+ Event System
COM+ System Application


Does someone know where can i find the final guidance for 2019 server?

Just this one (not much in the way of new info)


Beginning with Windows Server 2019, these guidelines are configured by default. Each service on the system is categorized as follows:

Security guidelines for system services in Windows Server 2016 | Microsoft Docs



You're welcome.
