    Disable Services


    Hi,
    I wanna disable some services because I want & I have to do so.
    Just to be on the safe side, I need your comments if these are safe and conflict free?

    If you're on lack of sure information on each one, please don't increase your post counts Disable Services :)

    1 AJRouter - AllJoyn Router Service - Routes AllJoyn messages for the local AllJoyn clients. If this service is stopped the AllJoyn clients that do not have their own bundled routers will be unable to run.

    Suggestions on services to disable?


    Lol. Those 4 of them are already on the internet now and could be accessed and copied/saved by anybody. Did you at least watermark them ? Have you shared those and any of them with anybody else ? Does anybody else have access to your computer they are on ?
