Of course not as you are confusing Hardware PnP (Plug aNd Play) with UPnP (Universal Plug aNd Play) and they are two completely different services.

Missed your reply, Doc. Sorry.

Have a look: About »Re: Security Flaws in Universal Plug-n-Play: Unplug, Don't Play

Silijaline also posted the same image. It is UPnP in services.msc.

Of course it is, I was referring to your statement that no hardware stopped working or didn't function when you disabled UPnP, which isn't UPnP or SSDP (both are actually used in UPnP) functional purpose, but it is Hardware PnP that handles the hardware in your PC so that's why no devices stopped working in or connected to your PC after shutting off/stopping/disabling UPnP.

UPnP has been disabled for years in services.msc. I've never had a problem with a device failing to work.

What’s the point of owning a supercar if you can’t scare yourself stupid from time to time?
