It's not a good idea to use msconfig in the way you describe. It's more used for temporary diagnostic checking. I certainly would not recommend unchecking all the services - your computer may no longer boot if you do that.
You can use the startup tab of msconfig to see what runs when your computer boots and to identify any unneeded programs, but it is better to disable them from within the actual program itself.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
