Description:  

Prevents users from using Add or Remove Programs to configure installed services.

This setting removes the "Set up services" section of the Add/Remove Windows Components page. The "Set
up services" section lists system services that have not been configured and offers users easy access to the
configuration tools.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, "Set up services" appears only when there are unconfigured
system services. If you enable this setting, "Set up services" never appears.

This setting does not prevent users from using other methods to configure services.

Note: When "Set up services" does not appear, clicking the Add/Remove Windows Components button starts
the Windows Component Wizard immediately. Because the only remaining option on the Add/Remove
Windows Components page starts the wizard, that option is selected automatically, and the page is
bypassed.

To remove "Set up services" and prevent the Windows Component Wizard from starting, enable the "Hide
Add/Remove Windows Components page" setting. If the "Hide Add/Remove Windows Components page"
setting is enabled, this setting is ignored.


Supported on: Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 operating systems only.
