You can deselect whatever ones you want as long as you know you do not need or want them to run.  Using modern hardware and a current OS, you shouldn't need to go in and start disabling things. What are some of the ones you have listed that you are considering disabling?

Ones that have missing fill (yellow) associated with the, is it ok?

If it's the entries from the wow64 folders, you can't otherwise it's your call. If the file is missing, then disabling won't have any impact anyway.
