Windows 7: Turning OFF PC Tablet


18 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit)
 
 
Turning OFF PC Tablet

I was uninstall some software and decided to look into the Windows On and Off list and I noticed that Tablet PC was install by default and on as far as I know.
Anyway I unchecked it in hopes to uninstall because I don't have a Tablet.
After 2 controlled shutdowns and startup it was gone.
I know I could have just DISABLED the service but why do that instead of a full uninstall of the program.
Everything is running good and I actually think I have less memory usage after all the normal startup stuff is done.

What do you folks think?

I not only disabled it ..but also uninstalled the service from my HD. It probably removed some entries in my registry. I was surprised on how long it took to remove totally as the computer did some removal oprior to shutdown and also some more on the next bootup.
Must be really enbedded into the startup.
Anyway it seems to bootup and shutdown a little quicker.
