I recently went on a web site looking to speed up my computer a bit by shutting off some services that I thought I wouldn't need. I made a big mistake!

My taskbar is completely gone now, I can't copy or paste anymore, I can't move any icons, I can't burn cd's and my audio is completely gone. My computer says I have no audio device?! Everything is just completely screwed up now. I also can't turn on the services again. The start, stop, enable, disable buttons are blanked out so I can't click them, I can't look at the properties of any service anymore either. Also, my system restore is off now. Is there any way to set the services back to default or something? Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the help!

Try Kelly's Korner.

Restore the Task Bar to Default Settings - #99 on the left.

As this is a registry edit you should backup the registry first.

Thanks for responding Budapest. I did the registry fix and I have a taskbar, but it's down and I can't move it. So, I don't see the start button or clock or anything. But, I can right click and get into task manager.

Thank you for helping

In the Task Manager go File > New Task and type "msconfig.exe", then click on the Services tab and you can start the services you previously turned off.
