Default Which running apps can I safely get rid of?

I know there are a bunch of things that load automatically and many
are necessary and others that do I want to run, but I know that
there are things that automatically start that I don't want or need.



Which of these can I safely get rid of and how can I prevent them
from automatically starting?



I am a home user with a standard desktop , using a wired router for
the internet (my Linux and his Windows) and a printer, and a usb 1Tb
drive.



Do you need other info other than using Squeeze (I believe)?



The following was done in a terminal:



root@babylon/home/user# ps -e >ps-e.txt



and the output file:

Among other things you appear to have NFS server installed and running
and Apache web server installed and running. Do you use your machine
as a network file server? As a web server? Those two seem the most
likely candidates for removal if you are trying to trim down your system.

# apt-get remove nfs-kernel-server

# apt-get remove apache2

# apt-get autoremove

If the packages are removed then they will no longer start.
