While I was trying to figure out why ehtray was popping up at startup and looking through my services. Not only were "Windows media center receiver service" and "windows media center scheduler service" set to automatically start for some reason, but "remote desktop services" was set to automatically start as well, and under status it said 'started'


I stopped the service and set it back to manual, went to 'system' and 'allow remote access', somehow that had been checked as well.


To my knowledge, none of these settings are suppose to be on by default, and I know I certainly didn't turn them on. Not long ago I ran windows repair at the advice I received in another thread, it fixed the issues I was having then, but would it have changed these settings too?
