Windows 7: SAfely disable start up services

SAfely disable start up services

Here's a screenshot of my start up devices. The first three appear to be graphics card related and I think they can be safely disabled. The third one "USB" I'm not sure of. Can I disable all four safely. I am getting so keen to maintain the very fast boot up speed that I enjoy with my SSD card that I check msconfig every week.
It's all Gregrockers fault:)

Okay, I'll disable all four and see what happens, thanks! I will create a restore point first I think!

Wouldn't that just make them function like USB 2.0, thereby losing the 3.0 speed? Guess it doesn't matter as most devices use 2.0 anyway
