7-year-old Gateway notebook w/ 1gb RAM. Just finished a reinstall of vista, hundreds of updates, SP2. As I have done in the past, I went to Black Viper's site for his list of services that can be disabled. I must have disabled something I shouldn't have, because now I get a "the service cannot accept control messages."
I've tried running BV's registry patch that returns services to their default, but I get the Message when I tried. Tried opening Services in Control Panel, and get the Message. I'm afraid to reboot into safe mode and try anything, because at least right now I have my broadband connected, and I'm afraid if I reboot, I might not even be able to do that!
I'd be grateful if somebody can help me figure this out - it took two days to reinstall the OS and all the updates.
