I woke up this morning, and my computer was going nuts on me.... :smash:

After booting up, I was not able to access the internet, and after checking the services, it seems that every service has been disabled somehow, so I decided to try a System Restore, but it said I have no restore points

So, I tried to open a command prompt as an administrator, but it kept saying Unable to accept control messages at this time??

So it seems tht my services have all been disabled, my retore points have all been deleted, and I am not allowed to run anything as an adminstrator now. :radioactive: :radioactive: :radioactive:


I am lost here as to how to proceed, I cannot get online, I cannot run a system restore, and I am unable to access an elevated command prompt. :killcomp: :smash: :killcomp:

So, I ask again, WHAT HAPPENED HERE??

Do I need to reinstall my OS from scratch??

Thanks in advance!!

In your Run box type services.msc

This will show the status of all your services. And there is a Help tab that can be useful


In your Run box type msconfig

open the Services tab

you can do whatever you want with your services here

you can hide all Microsoft services so you can play around with all the others without causing a crash

you can enable and disable services at will


Of course, if you are in DEEP trouble, let us know what happened.

Do I understand correctly - there are no restorable backups on external media?
