Start-Up messages

To make sure BOINC is not installed as a service, you can check in the start-up messages whether it says it does or not.
Open BOINC Manager and simultaneously press CTRL+SHIFT+E to open the Event Log.

If you see messages as below, that means you have BOINC installed as a service.
