Windows 7: Really (!) disable WISPTIS.EXE service (or program?)?

Really (!) disable WISPTIS.EXE service (or program?)?

I disabled the "Tablet PC Input Service" in Services management console for a Desktop 64bit Win 7.
I guess this is the underlying service for WISPTIS.EXE

Now when I start some other tools like "Toad for MySQL" then this program is started automatically anyway.

It is running as

C:\Windows\System32\WISPTIS.EXE /ManualLaunch

Since I found no option in Toad.exe it must be started automatically by Win7 itself.
Even worse: After exit of Toad WISPTIS continues to run.

Why ?

Why is disabling a service not enough?

Maybe it is run not as a service but as a "normal" program?
On another Win 7 computer it is NOT started when Toad is launched.
Very strange

How can I really, really get rid of this WISPTIS.EXE start?

Can I simply delete it?

Only the first two sentences seem to apply to W7.

This sentence...
wisptis.exe is installed on your system when installing Microsoft Office 2003, an Adobe product, or Journal Viewer via Windows Update.
...and the ones after it, don't seem to be true for W7. Wisptis.exe is a part of the OS without any other software installed.

There are lots of threads in various forums and a few blogs that talk about attempting to prevent this app from running. I did not locate one that was successful.

Does running WISPTIS.EXE cause problems for you?

I effectively disabled WISPTIS.exe in Windows XP by copying an empty file (created with NotePad) called WISPTIS.exe into the folder C:\Windows\System32\

I did take the precaution of first renaming the previous working copy of WISPTIS.exe as WISPTIS.ex_

I haven't seen or heard from WISPTIS.exe since.
