Yes, sorry, not trying to be obscure, just tried to wave my hands
without actually checking...

Go to Local Area Connection Properties -> Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Properties -> Advanced -> Options -> IP security -> Properties ->
Use this IP security policy (whew!).

If the above is set to "Server (Request Security)", it will try to 
negotiate IPSec. It could well default to that in Server/Adv. Server,
can't remember.
