    I wonder if this tool only checks if the patch is present or checks in depth if RDP is disabled.
    Verification with Windows XP is inefficient.

    I guess it checks if patch has been applied:

    I have had Remote Desktop Services disabled in Services for quite a long time, as well. :)

    Yes, I have them disabled also. There's no reason running them if one doesn't need it :)
