Windows 7: paradoxal problem w/ "application information service"

paradoxal problem w/ "application information service"

Hi there,

As I've mentioned in another topic before, I've had mysterious problems with my laptop and windows 7. Somehow, totally random my computer loses connection. When restarting it's stuck at "shutting down" . I've now figured out a work-around for the stuck at shutting down problem. I use a batch file for stopping the services "windows audio" service and "multimedia class scheduler" service, that runs at logof.

However, I still keep losing connection, so I went on with my search for the problem. In my log files i kept finding "application information" service... I read the description at the service managment window (accessed through ctrl+alt+delete --> task manager --> services --> button "services"), right clicked the service and set the startup setting to "disabled", and I should NEVER HAVE DONE THAT......

Now, I don't have any access to any program that needs admin priveleges. These include uninstall programs, but most important, all windows configuration programs, like system restore, regedit, and most import, service manager......

Does anyone know what to do in this situation? Is there a way to set "application information" service run settings back to "manual"?

Hello Afraca,

You might see if doing a System Restore through the System Recover Options at boot using a restore point dated before you changed the service may be able to restore it back to the way it was before.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for your help Brink/Shawn, did the system restore with the install disk, and worked like a charm! (kind of stupid of me to forget the option to repair windows installation with install disk, :$)

You're welcome Afraca. I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted.

Na, everyone forgets everything at one time or another.
