After installing Visual Studio 2013 I get strange terminal session listening to connection. It has number 7a78855482a04...

did you enable the remote debugger? That spurious connection is something that would have me wondering about the source of the installation software.

I never enabled remote debugger. I just downloaded Visual Studio 2013 from Microsoft and re-installed it. Unknown session comes already during installation process - exactly same number 7a78855482a04...
Does remote debugger gets activated during installation? Is there way to remove it?

Thank You

I have resolved the issue.
This only happens in Windows 8.1 when UAC is disabled (I had previously disabled UAC from registry).
After I re-enabled UAC strange session went away.
Maybe Visual Studio 2013 requires protected user mode, and since it cannot find it, it creates its own session

I was wrong, issue comes back after remote desktop re-enabled.
I did clean windows install on different machine with Visual Studio downloaded from Microsoft site, still same problem.

 SESSIONNAME       USERNAME                 ID  STATE   TYPE        DEVICE
 services                                    0  Disc
>console           Larry                     1  Active
 7a78855482a04...                        65536  Listen
 rdp-tcp                                 65537  Listen

I am surprised others don't wonder about this strange session.
