I formatted and re-installed XP SP3 last spring. I have always been fond of a lean running operating system, so it is not uncommon for me to disable an array of services, so that they do not start when starting Windows.
Some of these include:
Help and support
Wireless zero configuration
Now, I can understand the importance of having some automatic tasks, so that I don't have to continually update my anti-virus manually, as well as flash player, Google Chrome, etc.
I have turned most of those services to "automatic" so that I am able to open up the task scheduler in the control panel. However, all of the scheduled tasks still continue to say that they were unable to run, and even if I right click them and try to run them manually, they will still not run.
Any ideas? I knew that there was a hot fix available, but I believe that was for pre-service pack 3 installations of XP.
