    Tough question depends on what programs your using, but the ones in red are programs that will not effect the basic operation of the laptop.

    If your not using the Dell Dock you could disable that one as well, along with Bluetooth,

    if your using the bit torrents then enable them.
    M3800, 960GB SSD 480GB mSata, 16GB DDR3, I7-4720HQ, K1100, 7260AC Wireless
    Desktop Water Cooled I7 4770, GA-Z87X-UD5H, 32GB DDR3, 2x Crucial 960 GB SSD Raid 0, 4TB Raid 0 WD Drives, Dell 3007, BD-R, EVGA GTX 690 Classified HYDRO Copper FTW.
    My Dells Too many but presently, Inspiron 15R,, XPS L501x, 15z, Studio 15, Inspiron 6400, & M101z, M4600, M4700, M6400, Inspiron 15 7537

    disabling all those programs wouldn't effect any basic operations. But like you said, it depends which one you use. Personally, I would choose everything you did except for the updates. Would also disable Microsoft Office, Roxio Burn, Webcam Central, all the docks, and Windows Live Messenger.

    These are the only ones I'd leave:

    IDT PC audio
    synaptics pointing device driver
    DW WLAN card wireless network tray applet
    intel (R) common user interface
    ESET smart security
    super anti spyware
    quick set
    dell dock - only if you use it

    Additionally, if you use CCleaner you could just delete the entries completely. Otherwise you might get some duplicates like you have with Microsoft Office 2010.
