Here's one item - CEIP:

Disable the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program

Disabling the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program and the 
related Task Scheduler tasks that control this program can improve 
Windows 7 and Windows 8 system performance.

Procedure
1	In the Windows 7 or Windows 8 guest operating system, start the 
control panel and click Action Center > Change Action Center settings.
2	Click Customer Experience Improvement Program settings.
3	Select No, I don't want to participate in the program and click Save 
changes.
4	Start the control panel and click Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler.
5	In the Task Scheduler (Local) pane of the Task Scheduler dialog box, 
expand the Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows nodes and open 
the Application Experience folder.
6	Disable the AITAgent and ProgramDataUpdater tasks.
7	In the Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows node, open the 
Customer Experience Improvement Program folder.
8	Disable the Consolidator, KernelCEIPTask, and Use CEIP tasks.
