Windows 7: If I disable A-Squared & SAS services, will I run into trouble?

If I disable A-Squared & SAS services, will I run into trouble?

I just noticed that Superantispyware free and A-Squared free are in my "services" window. I only use them as on-demand scanners so it alright if I disable those 2 services?

If you disable those services, when you launch the programs, the services will be restarted so that the definitions can be updated. The services will stay active until you disable them again. They're not hurting anything, why not just leave well enough alone?

Hey Rolo,
Like Corrine states if it ain't broke don't fix it.
Just make sure your monitor is sparkling clean.

You are asking for trouble, young man.

@Rolo,

THW is still upset because I "got him" and Mrs. THW won't let him retaliate.
