I am trying to debug Windows 8.1 and find if any Windows Service is causing an error.

What Network services are needed to use Internet? I want to use the computer with as few services started as possible.

msconfig.exe, Services, Disable all including all Microsoft Services then re-enable what services to make Internet Networking work (to download/update Windows Store Apps).
