Is there any way to restore Windows 7 services to their default setting automatically? I have tried manually setting certain services but they won't stay in the configuration I give them. For example, my Window's Update Service is set to Automatic-delayed start. Unfortunately, I can't run Windows Update and I get "the service isn't started" message. So, I try starting the service, it indicates started and same problem. I try resetting it to Automatic, hit the apply button and all is well. I restart the computer and it is back to Automatic-Delayed and Window's Update won't run....

Any ideas out there? I would really just like to run a program that resets everything to default but haven't found it yet.
