hi guys

i have quite a major proble. for some reason, everytime i restart my computer. I lose all of my services and items from MSCONFIG's startup list.

I recently installed Peer Guardian 2 as my firewall as a friend reccomended it and said it didn't take up as much resources as zone Alarm. the installation went fine and it didn't say anything went wrong. so i then restarted my computer but only to find that my nice media centre edition theme had gone. so i logged on and went to servoces.msc to enable the themes service as i presumed that is what had went wrong. BUT then I discovred that all of my services were disabled.

any idea how this could have happened and why it could have happened?

any help will be gratefully recieved :thumbsup:

thanks a lot

PeerGuardian is a powerful yet petite firewall application especially designed for P2P users and anyone else who wants to protect his or her computer from unauthorized searches instigated by private agencies and corporations.

PeerGuardian works by blocking and logging all TCP/IP connections to and from known IP ranges used by known P2P foes, such as the RIAA, MPAA, MediaForce, MediaDefender, BaySTP, Ranger, OverPeer, NetPD, and more.

To make sure that the block-list used to block malicious connections is up to date; PeerGuardian uses an on-line block-list Database that is continuously updated on a daily basis -- so your privacy will remain safe while swapping files.

PeerGuardian is compatible with all TCP/IP based file sharing applications, such as Kazaa, iMesh, LimeWire, eMule, Grokster, DC++, Shareaza, and more. In short, PeerGuardian is the must have tool for any file swapper.

So it's a firewall that lets in anyone on a P2P network? Great! :thumbsup:
