Fix Services MMC Extended View is Blank in Windows XP

Operating system:

Windows XP


The Extended view of Services Management Console (services.msc) displays the service description and also has links to Start or Stop services. In some systems, the Extended view may appear blank.This has to do with broken JScript.dll registration.

To fix this problem, log in 
as Administrator or equivalent, and then run the following command from Start, Run dialog:

                regsvr32.exe  jscript.dll

Press {ENTER}

You should see the output message "DllRegisterServer in jscript.dll succeeded."

This fixes the Extended view.

Close and re-open Services MMC.
