Windows 7: Services - Restore Default Services in Windows 7

Hello Realflow,

Usually if they are all messed up, it may be best to reinstall Windows.

If you like, you can compare your settings to the table in the tutorial to see if it's set to default or not. This way you would only need to change the settings for the ones that are not default.

Services - Start or Disable

I would like to have all of the restore services things in one runnable file to do all the services at once rather than reinstalling windows and losing hundreds of games thousands of photos and all my music. reinstalling windows isn't an option im willing to take. is there really no program tool or .bat / .vbs that will restore all the services to the defaults?

Hello realflow,

To be honest, if your services are that messed up where all of them need to be reset, then it would really be better to reinstall Windows.

You could also do a system restore using a restore point dated before your services got messed up to restore them to how they were at the time the restore point was created.

Realflow, with a proper install and configuration of Windows you shouldn't lose any games/pictures/or any other data whatsoever re-installing the OS. Moreover, proper imaging/backups ensure you don't clean reinstall, unless some very unfortunate event happens.

However, I wonder if I would be allowed to download all and create an all-in-one reg file and possibly attaching to a post if/when such drastic troubleshooting is required?

I have a question.

Would a Repair Install fix the problem with default Services while not loosing a lot of things?

Sure, you could if you like, but it's just not recommended when there's that many.

It would, but since there isn't an ISO file available that is newer than a fully updated current installation, it would be impossible to do a repair install without one.

I understand.
Thank the good Lord I have Microsoft installation disc.

I forgot many don't. Microsoft has pretty much kicked the OEM/SLP people in the cherries.

Thanks for the clarification, I hope of course this stays theoretical but never know.
+1 for having the install disk, though mine is non-SP, so, glad I could at least download the SP version from software recovery

Restore Default Services in Windows 7

Hello, probably the most stupid question ever asked, but I cannot open this list ( on page one of this Tutorial ).

To find it I did Regedit and found HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current control Set\Services, but then I am stuck with a long list in very small print and not your nice sheet ?

How can I open that ????
