Some Services Are Just Supposed to Run "Manual"

I tweak with Services settings for better security and performance, but it's a silly endeavor, because the services themselves are quirky: they might not start correctly if they are set to Manual when they should be Automatic (3rd party services especially, it seems) and vice versa!

Here are some services that should have their startup types be Manual even though they are running most of the time:

  • COM+ Event System
  • Network Connections
  • Network Location Awareness (NLA)
  • Remote Access Connection Manager
  • Telephony
  • Terminal Services
