What does the Registry Key for COMClassStore for? Why does it make my machine boot up much faster?

Some guy at work has been raving about how setting COMClassStore in the windows registry makes his boot time just 2 minutes rather than the usual 10 minutes for our work machines (that's the average boot time for most of our laptops due to some encryption crap).
Question is, what does this registry key do, and will we be able to live without it?
I've already disabled it to test, and I can't lie. It does make booting much faster without any noticeable changes to the functionality of my machine.
