Hardentools v2.0 RC1

Vista / Win10 / Win7 / Win8 / WinXP
Hardentools boosts security by disabling a number of Windows features.

The intent of this tool is to simply reduce the attack surface by disabling the low-hanging fruit. Hardentools is intended for individuals at risk, who might want an extra level of security at the price of some usability. It is probably not suitable for all users.

The interface could not be simpler, you simply click "Harden!" and it will begin disabling services.

Later the interface will have a "Restore" button if you want to revert to previous settings.

For more information on what it disables, check its homepage.
