So, Hamachi2 seems to like auto-running at startup, and i don't really need it on a day-to-day basis... I was wondering how in the world can i stop this, since i don't see an option for it anywhere in the settings, and I already went to msconfig and unchecked the Hamachi box in startup, and couldn't find any mention of Hamachi in the services tab.... Despite all this, Hamachi still runs every time i boot my computer...
The only solution i currently can think of is uninstalling Hamachi and reinstalling it each time i need to use it...
Is there anything that can be done to make Hamachi stop auto-running at startup short of uninstalling it?
thanks in advance.
I found a way to do this:
1) Right click on "My Computer". Select "Manage".
2) Click on "Services and Applications" and then on "Services".
3) Inside the services screen, scroll down to "LogMeIn Hamachi 2.0 Tunneling Engine"
4) Double click on it. Then change the "Startup Type" to "Manual". Click okay.
That should do it.
Thank you, you are a saint.
This is the only way this works that I've found.
And for those of you who can't/don't want to do that:
instead of uninstalling and reinstalling each time, you can just go to the application and put it in a rar file (as stored) and just delete the real file, that way you can just extract it each time you need it. Much easier and simpler than re-installing. I haven't tested it, but it's never failed in the past for me.
or change the .exe to something else. Whatever works for you...
Or just use this code in a bat file:
::If Hamachi is running then it will stop it. TASKLIST /FI "IMAGENAME EQ hamachi-2.exe" | find /i "hamachi-2.exe" IF ERRORLEVEL 0 sc stop Hamachi2Svc GOTO START
::If not running then it will start it. :START sc config Hamachi2Svc start= demand sc start Hamachi2Svc
Oh my god you have no idea how much i love you right now. I have spent a month off and on trying to find an answer to this problem. you are more than a saint you are God. I can't reiterate enough how helpful this was. THANKS SO MUCH!
