Yes, of course. But you have to start it before using nHancer.

But there's really very little to gain from disabling the service. The service does absolutely nothing as long as the user doesn't actually change a setting in nHancer. In theory it takes about 1 MB of memory, but even that is swapped out if some other application really does need all the memory it can get.

Same is true for most services by the way. Other than to speed up starting a little, there's really not much to gain from disabling most services.
