FTS Service is set to Manual yet turns itself on
Often times when I am in SSMS I notice that the FTS service is running. It is set via the Configuration manager in MANUAL mode. I have reset it several times to Stopped and MANUAL yet it still starts somehow.

Thank you for your feedback. I could not reproduce your problem with the steps you have indicated. Would you happen to have someother service marked as dependent on the FTS service? Check the dependcies tab of the serice properties. If FTS service is indeed started then SSMS is depicting the correct state.
if you start the SQLAgent service related to the instance then FTS is started.
