Shell Hardware Detection Service stops automatically in Windows 2008 R2 server

In Windows 2008 R2 server, Shell Hardware Detection service stops starts and stops automatically on its own gracefully. If you check the event logs, it registers the information logs showing no issues.


In Windows 2008 R2 server system, the behavior of this service was changed to to stop automatically after sometime a user logs off and starts when a users logs in.  This was done to prevent minimize surface attacks. This is by design.
