No, but if you disabled them, they will not load at all.

Thanks to your question I have learnt something new today. I wouldn't advise you to tinker with the deleting of what you may think are superfluous services

Services.msc:

Click Start, type services.msc in the Search box. Press ENTER. Right click and stop each service which is not necessary for you.

Stop Unwanted startup programs:

Start > Run > write msconfig > Click on StartUp tab
Deselect the programs you want to stop

The potential with deleting services is that you may install a program or piece of kit in the future that requires a certain service in order to function.
Disable the services they wont bother you again.

Quick question about Services.
Hey, all. I often have to change the startup type of a number of services on different machines, which quite frankly, is quite time-consuming and dull. Basically, I'd like to be able to automate this process, with the use of something like a .bat, or a .reg file, for example. I've looked into...
