Doc Text:
Previously, when trying to uninstall rhev-guest-tools in Windows 2003 64-bit version, an error event was created in the event viewer saying "The BalloonService service hung on starting", even though the package was uninstalled correctly. Now, The balloon service executable is no longer registered meaning the service is no longer running by default and rhev-guest-tools can be uninstalled without any error messages.

The balloon service executable is no longer registered, and thus the service is no longer running by default.
