Is it safe to disable Security Center?

Hello, will I loss some functionality if I disable this service? I'm using 3rd party firewall and MSE as AV so I don't care too much about builtin firewall and DAP. I need however to connect another computer at home via ethernet cable. If I turn this off, stops something to work?

It shouldn't. Try it and see..if it screws things up, then just turn it back on. s
