Are you sure about that?  Or rather, are you sure it's on by default?  
I just checked my toy desktop machine and rebooted to the other 
partition of my laptop, and didn't see it running on either.l  To be 
sure, I'd have turned it off if I knew it was on, but I have no idea 
how to do things like that on Windows...
