For your information I followed your instructions and set the services back to their default status as described on the web page.
As for the service Alerter, the top box of the dependencies tab reads "No Dependencies" (note that the box is not empty;
however still no trace of workstation). The bottom box also reads "No Dependencies".
It seems that there are no more errors in the Applications section of the Event Viewer, which I consider good news and very promising
However as fort the System section of the Event Viewer, the following services do not work :
- Workstation service,
- Computer Browser,
- DCOM Server Process Launcher,
- DNS Client service,
- TCP IP Net Bios service,
- Parallel Port Driver,
- Active Common Service,
- SSDP Discovert Server,
- Universal Plug and Play,and
- Windows Media PLayer Network Sharing Service.
The following services do not work as a result of a failure to log on as NTAuthority\Localservice (in this respect I remember having deleted an account which may well be NTAuthority\Localservice at the time of the infestation of my PC;
however, as far as I can recall, the name was not exactly "NTAUthority\Localservice beacuse it had figures in it and was
at the time odd enough to deserve deletion (or so I thought!):
- DNS Cache Service,
- LmHosts Service,
- SCardSVR service,
- WebClient service,
- ASPNET state service,
- Remort Registry service,
- ALG service,and
- SSDPSRV service.
I hope all the above is a bit helpful.
Again thank you for your kind assistance in this matter.
Looking forward to reading from you,
