cannot start Services.msc RRS feed

  • Pregunta

  • I've disabled some services through Services.msc, as a result, Services.msc can't start itself now, nor can I install any program or run any configurative tools.

     

    C:\windows\system32\services.msc

     

    The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

     

    Now how can I enable a service when Services.msc could not start? I've tried "net start" command,

    but:

     

    System error 5 has occurred.

    Access is denied.

     

    Such irony, I'm the only user of this computer, but so many "access is denied" for me, and bad people can just control this computer anytime they want, I just knew they can.

     

    please help me

  • I had the same problem, disabled AppInfo because the service is eating up all the memory, without knowing the consequence.

    It took me 2 hours. The final solution for me is pressing F8 when rebooting, and select Directory Services Restore Mode.

    In this mode, I could run Services.msc as normal, even it says the AppInfo is still disabled in the panel.

    Btw, if the Appinfo was only stopped in manual mode, it is much easier to restore, by restarting in task manager, which needs no administrator authorization and could operate most services which are not disabled in services.msc.

  • Hi,

     

    I had the same problem yesterday. I spent 4 hours trying to fix it.

     

    I can't be 100% sure, but I think it's the Application Information service which causing this problem. I disabled a few services including this one and I couldn't start the services.msc later.

     

    I tried to enable services in Safe Mode (press F8 during Vista boot and then choose Safe Mode), but I think I missed this service so it didn't work for me.

    At the end I had to do a System restore to a previous point. You should be able to do it in the Safe mode or you can do it via boot options - F8 during Vista boot up and then Windows Repair/Restore to a previous point. After the restore, I started disabling services one by one to see which one causes the problem - this is how I established that Application Information is the one to look at.

     

    I hope it helps.

     

    Cheers,

    Andrey

  • If you're still having issues...You may have the vundo virus.  It's a very difficult virus to remove, because it disables most of the helpful features in MS for getting rid of viruses.  It also disables and or attempts to make it difficult to get win updates, antivirus updates and install new antivirus programs.
