Uninstall some of the crapware like Mcafee and anything else you aren't going to use.
As far as services you can turn a bunch of them off. Check out http://www.jasonn.com/turning_off_un..._on_windows_xp. I mostly followed his advice, but left a few things on I knew I would use.
You can also use XPlite to uninstall a few windows things you aren't going to use... they have a free version available that will let you do some of this, or a pay version that will do more. Try the free version. Its all I've used.

I think that is (system updates) enough to keep IE even if you use it once per month.
I would completely agree, but I don't know if it is even needed for system updates
