    the registry entry for the service description cannot be accessed by the current logged on user because the registry key is "protected" with configured access/owner permissions.
    TokenBroker is part of windows store.

    its like trying to access a folder that you dont have permissions to view/open.
    the same thing applies here.
    its trying to read a registry key (or if the description meta is from the file, it cant read it from the file) because it does not have the applicable access permissions to read it (most likely a security related reason)
    the description for every service under services.msc is located in the windows registry.
    most of the description meta comes from the file itself such as "plug and play" > @%SystemRoot%\system32\umpnpmgr.dll,-101
    some descriptions can be manually entered in the registry key.

    so is it ok like that or do i need to do something?

    its perfectly fine. there is no detrimental side effect of what youre seeing.
    its just an "artifact" of how windows is "protecting" access to certain files.
    nothing to worry about at all.

    Ok cool, thanks for your help. Would you happen to know if all the services running that came from this new update absolutely need to be running? Is someone going to come up with an update list of things I can put on manual or disable?

    typically, i never set any services to "disabled" simply because every windows installation is different depending on hardware, type of OS (pro, home, etc) and user/system configuration and if a service is "disabled" and is needed, it will not start and that could cause detrimental issues.
    i set non critical services to manual but keep critical services to their respective startup states of automatic.
    depending on your configuration, there may be some services that you may not want set to "manual" because some user/program interactions may not start those services (an example service is "nvidia display container LS", the nvidia graphic options dont appear when you "right click on blank desktop" > shell window
    setting some services to "manual" is a similar equivalent to "disabled" but those services will generally execute when it is "called" upon demand during a user or program interaction, not all of them will execute during user/program interaction though.
    ive attached a screen shot of the critical base services set to "automatic" for my configuration, windows 10 x64 pro (creators update 1703) (some services are greyed out and cannot be changed unless done through the registry, i left these alone as theres a reason why MS intended it to be that way and some services will change back to their previous startup state despite how many times you change it) though as i said, "critical" services will depend on your user/system configuration, hardware and type of OS.
    be aware though, there are more areas where programs can start up, this includes task scheduler and task manager > "startup" as well as "third ring" low level drivers.
