    The below service indicates you have Google software installed, could be any Google software. Disabling the Service *may* cause the software to fail.
    See via the program and or software if there are other ways of disabling the phone home problem.

    You might want to go through Task Manager and disable it there.

    Edit: doh! I meant Task Scheduler, not Task Manager.

    mantra,

    Have a look in Task Scheduler.

    Edit... Mine are disabled there.
