    Hyper-V Services Installed Despite Feature Being Disabled

    Hi All,

    This is more of an exploratory question. I've just completed a clean fresh install of Windows 10. When checking over the services I noticed that the Hyper-V services were installed. They're all set to Manual trigger mode so they aren't running.

    I also haven't enabled the Hyper-V feature.

    I've not seen these services installed on a system outside of having the feature enabled. Why are they now installed and set to Manual trigger mode?

    You can install management services (named Management Tools in Windows Features) without hypervisor certainly (so you can manage VMs on another PC) but I don't remember what is installed by default as I've got it all enabled.

    The Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management service must be running | Microsoft Docs

    Hyper-V is not enabled on the machine. Very odd.

    I haven't checked if the management tools are installed, thats definitely worth checking.

    Actually, I know everything in Windows Programs and Features for Hyper-V is disabled.
