Greeting forum members!

I find that the extended tab of services.msc is blank in my Windows 7 installation. The entries can be seen when select the standard tab.

Please help me solve this issue ..

Regards

On a fresh install I really don't know how this can happen unless something or someone has changed things. Try running sfc /scannow from cmd prompt. If it finds a problem and fixes it scan two more times.

Thanks.

I ran the system file checker on the command prompt. According to it, every system file is in order.

About a couple of weeks back, I found that I was infested with the "whitesmoke worm". Malwarebytes had removed this malware from my PC - I think the issue started sooner after that ..

Well the virus might be gone but some of the things that it did are not gone. I'm thinking a repair install might do the trick but you should wait for some smarter people to reply to your post.

Well, I took the easy route - formatted and reinstalled the OS. As mentioned, I guess that worm may have played havoc on my system. :)

Thanks

Sometimes that is the best way to handle the problem. Glad you up and running well.
