  1. Those 2 are listed in device manager, do i really need them, ?

    I don't have a printer install, so i guess its safe to disable the ECP printer, but what about the communications port(com 1)?

    why disable them, they dont use resources or memory they just exist.

    If you want to get rid of them go into the BIOS and disable them in there.
