  Windows Time disabling issue 
 Date Written

Hey all i have run in to a situation with windows 2003 sp2 "Telco" edition.

I build systems that record telephone and radio calls, these calls get there time and date information from the PBX systems that run there telephone/radio network.We require that the time stamps in windows match the PBX times stamps for call recording purposes As such we stop and disable the windows time service.

Within the last few months we have noticed in our QA process that after disabling windows time service , after a few reboots of the system it will be changed from disabled to automatic, however the service will still be stopped.

During our build process we do a full windows update. We do not turn off the windows time service till after the updates are completed so i don't think it is a update that is re enabling it. When i look under the dependency's tab of the service no dependency's are listed.

So i guess my question is has anyone ran into a disabled service turning itself on? I thought the whole point of disabled was that except for direct user interaction no program can turn the service back on even if it is required fro that program to run.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Yes, I've had the disabling problem and I'm sure many people here have also experienced the problem. What I remember doing was changing the service manually in the registry. I searched a guide on how to do it since i don't dare go blindly into regedit.

So best hope I guess would be google?
