Vista Ultimate edition: How to UnInstall Terminal Services?

    I've successfully installed Windows Vista Beta2 with an "Ultimate"
    Product-Key on a VMWare 5.5 virtual machine.
    Everything goes fine, but i'd like to uninstall the terminal services, which
    are installed by default.
    I haven't figure out a way to do so. In Windows Server 2003 i can go to
    Add/Remove programs in the control panel and then uninstall TS from Windows
    Components, but in Vista, under "Turn Windows Vista features On/Off" there
    isn't the option for TS.
    Is it possibile to uninstall or disable the terminal services on the
    Ultimate edition of Vista?
    I have to test some applications on Vista, but these apps requires the
    terminal services to be disabled (and to check the presence of TS, these
    apps rely on the registry key
    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions for the string
    "Terminal Server"; if i manually change this value with regedit, Windows
    automatically restores it)

    How to simply disable the TS service? at least programs which i know and dont
    "want" TS on, they can be fooled just with service.

    I've already tried, but the app checks the registry key.
    Disabling the services does not remove the entry in the registry, and if i
    manually modify it with regedit, Windows restores the previous value, no
    matter if the services are disabled or not.
