As the topic description shows i decided a few weeks ago that i hate myself, to punish myself i decided to open msconfig, disable all the services i could get my hands onto and then to restart without a save point.

At first it was pretty easy to deal with because it wasnt my main computer but my laptop, but now i need to fix it before i leave on a trip. The sound or wireless networking no longer works and manually trying to start any of the services with the much safer services.msc results in "Could not start the ****** service on Local Computer, The dependency service or group failed to start".

I have the ability to transfer files to the computer via usb so feel free to ask me to install something.

Windows should have placed those deleted instances in a file on your computer. You could look for the file and use it to reinstate what you disabled.

Hmm, I don't think Windows will LET you disable the crucial services will it? Either way, boot safe mode or "Last Known Good Config" and you should be able to fix it.

It is possible to disable crucial services if you go through msconfig. That is why people should only diable any services they choose to through the management console (services.msc) instead.
There is no justice, there is just us.
