We have a company who use the above to remote into our systems.
Company policy is to know who and what is going on on our systems so id like to know if and how best to configure a shortcut to start and stop the logmein services.

There are currently 2 logmein services on the win 2k8 server.

Thanks

you will have to go in services to do so.

o prevent LogMeIn from starting up at startup, please do the following:

    Click Start.
    Right-click My Computer.
    Select Manage.
    In the window that appears expand Services and Applications.
    Select Services.
    On the right hand side find LogMeIn.
    Right click and select Properties.
    From Startup Type select Manual and click OK.
    Do the same for the LogMeIn Maintenance Service.
    After rebooting, the LogMeIn service will not start (the taskbar icon WILL appear showing disabled).

To re-enable, right-click the LogMeIn taskbar icon and select Switch On LogMeIn.


create a services mmc shortcut on the desktop.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to use Powershell.
- Open2 to sessions of notepad

Notepad Session 1
Start-Service -DisplayName *logmein*

Open in new window

*save the notepad file as StartLogMeIn.ps1

Notepad Session 2
Stop-Service -DisplayName *logmein*

Open in new window

*save the notepad file as StopLogMeIn.ps1

Put these files somewhere on the local machine and create a shortcut on the desktop with the respective names.
