No,i dont' want to lock the usb port.
But i thought,if i don't use any USB flash drive to improve my OS,i could disable this option, from Services.
If i disable it,do i get troubles in the future, when i insert any USB stick / external HDD ?

Go into Properties of the USB, and disable it that way.
You can also choose to configure it, say 30% will be allocated for Readyboost, the remainder is for storage.

or read up on this tutorial Readyboost-Setup
