No

And why would you want to? Suppose some day you want to enable one of those things again, then what would you do?

system configuration utility

These are processess that start up when windows start but dont need to be running in the backround. If I need to use them again I can still start them myself manually whether or not there is a reference to them in the system configuration utility window.

Try Kelly's msconfigdisable.vbs

I have downloaded stuff in the past and then uninstalled same and was left with these listings in msconfig that I no longer wanted or needed. If you are referring to these type of listings, there is a way to get rid of them. Go to http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm. Go to the right of item #148 - Clear Disabled items from Msconfig Startup & Selective. Download the '.vbs' to where ever you save stuff and then run same. When you run it, you will get a message of possible listings that you can get rid of. The listings will "only" be of the items that you have unchecked in msconfig. You will then be given the option, on an individual basis, to remove any listing. I have used this "vbs" from time to time with no ill effects.
Only a suggestion,
Eddie
