In fact, it could be only a monitor color problem...
Do the icons have a 'cross' in the left upper side?
When you point the mouse over the 'a' blue icon, how many providers are working?

So, you're protected...

outlook\ exchange is waiting for a subsystem to start. i dont use ms outlook or ms exchange

The message "The provider is waiting on the subsystem to start" will be shown there until you open MS Outlook.
The plugin will be enabled automatically after that. As you don't use them, don't worry...

is this why they are grey there is no x in the corner of any icon

No. You're ok. You think the icon must be blue but in your computer, for some reason, they seem to be grayed.
