Windows 7, Control panel, Administrative Services, Component Manager, Local Services.

    Question

  • Recently in Windows 7, Control Panel, Administrative Service, Component Manager, Local Services, I fiddled around and started and or stopped some components not really knowing what I was doing.

    I've looked and unfortunately there is no reset button.

    I know this is a large task, as I'd say there was about 100 components which I may have changed.  But can someone help me please.  Either by sent a text file of recommended settings or we could come to some other arrangement.

    Thanks and kindregards,


    Geoffrey..

  • Hi Geoffrey,

    Have you considered using system restore to restore the system to a point in time prior to your tweaking?
