If you do not check the box "Allow Service to Interact with Desktop",
NT will not open the command window and will be superficially undetectable
(which may or may not be a good thing). If you do in fact do this, I'm not
sure how to stop deschall from running as I didn't check to see if it actually
shows up in the task list as a task.

Also, if you're running deschal6.exe on your pentium-pro, you may want to
running deschal4.exe. In my testing its proven itself to run faster by
tens of
thousands of keys per second (once it reaches 30 or 31^2 keys).
