  1. I thought I ought to post the link ASAP as it's a bug which seems to cause a lot of people a great deal of consternation.
  2. In manual the service should run when you click on "Start this service" and it should continue to run (and service the relevant applications) until told otherwise i.e. the user clicks on "Stop this service". Unfortunately my machine appears to think for itself - and it doesn't do that very well at all, hence the fact that I must continually start the service whenever I need it however, as I stated before, it's only a minor gripe.
  3. Available here - http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4392.html
  4. That's another thing, some services, on my machine at least, seem to interpret the manual setting as a stop command - Windows Installer being one of the culprits. Every time I need to use the installer it's necessary for me to start the service by hand and, as soon as it's done its job, it switches off (I have it on manual as it's not one of these services that you call on all the time). Still, that's just a minor gripe.
  5. I don't know just what it 's supposed to do, all I know is that it is one of the few services which will cause agravation if you disable it. I lost just about every function, including Internet access when I accidentaly disabled this service - It took me half a night (and the loss of a lot of hair) to discover what I had done wrong. Boy...did I feel sick!
  6. I second Drewdatrip's post but, I would, also, add "SpywareBlaster" from - http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html - it sits in the registry and prevents these suckers from installing themselves in the first place. It need to be updated regularly to be effective.
  7. A good start would be to get rid of MyWebSearch - http://www.mac-net.com/445088.page
  8. The wallpaper is called "Bliss" and it's, quite possibly, created in a terrain generator such as "Terragen" - http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/ but, that's only my opinion and I stand to be corrected by anyone who might know more about it than I do.
  9. Sorry FAT64, didn't mean to cut across your advice then. I'm getting a bit slow in my old age.
  10. Can you remember which services you deleted - if not it could be a long night. Perhaps it's better to "bite the bullet" and do a repair.
  11. There are three files in the i386 folder - Services._ ; Services.ex_ and Services.ms_ I think that the most likely one is the last one, but perhaps you need all of them.
  12. Perhaps - start/run/sfc /scannow might do it.
  13. FAT64 has just come up with the most obvious solution.
  14. You could try going into the System 32 to see whether or not the services are still there.
  15. I think "Windows Installer" is the service that needs to be either on automatic or started in manual.
