    Service is Started on Restart but Service Set to Disabled

    Service is Started on Restart but Service Set to Disabled

    I am new to WIN10, and I find this behavior puzzling. I have set the service "Microsoft Office Click-to-Run Service" to Disabled because I can't stand using OneDrive and OneDrive (Office 2013 version) will autostart. So, I use a utility program (SC) to (1) Enable ClickToRunSvc service, (2) Start the Service, and (3) Disable the service (sc config ClickToRunSvc start= disabled).

    Then I start the Microsoft programs as usual (Office365). When finished, I shut down the computer using the Windows menu item "Start", Power, Shutdown.

    When I turn the computer back on and log in, the ClickToRunSvc is running again even though the service status is DISABLED?

    It's as if the shutdown is not a true shutdown but in fact a hibernate or a "shutdown.exe /s /hybrid".

    However, if I stop the ClickToRunSvc before shutting down, it is still stopped on the next boot -- but if it is running (started) when I shut down or restart, the restart allows the ClickToRunSvc to be running again.

    Can anyone explain why this behavior in WIN10 is different than WIN7 ? In WIN7, I could leave ClickToRunSvc running at shutdown and it would not be able to start itself until my batch file started it up (enable, start, disable).

    Resolved. The default "Shutdown" button was performing a hybrid shutdown only, vs. a CMD shutdown.exe command.

    To turn off the default of hybrid "Shutdown", reverse the instructions viewed at this link: Enable This Setting to Make Windows 10 Boot Up Faster

    Microsoft Office Click-to-Run Service / Cortana frustrations

    After running services.msc, I open "Microsoft Office Click-to-Run Service" properties and apply DISABLED. At some point, and I haven't determined what triggers it, because I check after turning on laptop after an overnight shutdown and it will still show as DISABLED -- for a while -- but at some point it will turn itself back to being AUTOMATIC. HOW does it override my direct instructions of DISABLED over and over? Similarly, I must play whack-a-mole ending Cortana within my Task Manager every new start of my HP Pavilion laptop. Frustrating.
