Why doesn't the "Help & Support" Service stay disabled?
The Help and Support service will restart itself and stay running after you
ask for help and support. Apparently that's just how it works.
Why doesn’t the “Help & Support” Service stay disabled?
Yep, this service turns itself back on as soon as it gets a chance.
Usually as soon as you ask for any kind of help. I verified it myself – I
stopped and disabled the service then asked for help. Sure enough it’s
back to auto-start and running. That’s more of a “how” than
a “why”, but it at least explains the behavior.
