Depends on what you define "threat" as. Disabling the entry will stop it from starting - but most exploits these days are multi-pronged and will take several actions to ensure that you can't stop them.

FWIW - msconfig was (IMO) designed as a troubleshooting tool - not for permanent changes. I much prefer these free programs:
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I totally agree with usasma.

Although it works as a basic startup manager, msconfig should not be used routinely to disable auto-start programs. Further, msconfig does not list all applications loaded in all possible startup locations (some entry points are hidden and unknown to the user) and does not allow the complete removal of disabled entries from its list. You should not use msconfig to disable startup applications related to a running service. Doing so alters the registry and there are services that are essential for hardware and booting your system. When you uncheck a service in msconfig, you completely disable it. If you uncheck the wrong one, you may not be able to restart your computer. You should only disable services using Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.

However, you still need to remove jusched32.exe. Download and perform a scan with Trend Micro's Sysclean Package.
Be sure to print out and follow the instructions provided in the How to Use System Cleaner for performing a scan.
