so i was going thrugh my services and found one called remote registry with the description

Remote Registry Service. Service which is part of Windows. As per Microsoft's excellent explanation : "Enables remote users to modify registry settings on your computer, provided the remote users have the required permissions. The Remote Registry service is primarily used by remote administrators and for performance counters. If this service is stopped or disabled, modifying the registry will only be allowed on the local computer. If this service is disabled, it will not affect registry operations on your local computer. Other computers or devices will no longer be able to connect to your local computer's registry.".

i disabled it for obviously lol

but can it be in a bad way ?? im it better too leave it off or not ??

Read more >> Why run the RemoteRegistry Service?
Disabling the RemoteRegistry service will break most patch management solutions including the Software Update Service and Windows Automated Update.
If you disable this service, you will have to perform patch management manually

Looks like I misunderstoond the TechNet article. Someone else within Microsoft recently sent me this:
...I have the remote reg service disabled on all of my machines, and the machines I've built for others... and Windows Updates works fine for me.
