Hello OpTicaL,

I would recommend to use either the REG file or Group Policy in the tutorial. The REG file does the same thing as Group Policy, but I just added it for those that do not have Group Policy in their editions of Windows 7.

Can someone tell me what the default setting for the Program Compatibility Assistant Service is? I was thinking about turning it off so I disabled it but then decided against it and now I can't remember what it was originally set to. I checked Program Compatibility Assistant Service | Black Viper | www.blackviper.com and it says Windows 7 Ultimate's default setting is Manual but I have a feeling it's supposed to be Automatic or Automatic (delayed start). Can anyone who has Windows 7 and hasn't messed with the setting yet tell me what it was set to?

Hello Chillz,

The default setting for the service is Started and Automatic.

Quote:
The Diagnostic Policy Service (DPS) and Program Compatibility Assistant Service must be set to Started and Automatic in Services for the PCA to be able to be enabled and to execute.
