hundreds of Dr Watson errors for every startup application
10.tmp system process is running , cannot kill
have got MS word and Internet explorer and file explorer to work
lot of other applications are faling
cannor run control panel-system

Any suggestions?
Thanks,

Dear all,
I have noticed that many services are stopped especially Application Management
I used run..msconfig ..to find this out.
How can I manually start these services?
Thanks,
Ron
