Anyone know why certain services can't be set to "Automatic (Delayed Start)", and yet they can be disabled with no seeming harm?  One example is "NVIDIA Display Driver Service".  The full error message is:

  The delayed auto-start flag could not be set.  Error 87: The parameter is incorrect.

Many services are members of service groups. Many of these groups have entries in the ServiceGroupList in the registry that controls the order in which the services are started. Many services must be started in a specific order. Services that are members of such a group cannot be set to Delayed start.
