OK Then I would go back about 5 days and do a system restore.

Well, I restored to about a week ago and I still have the problem. Is there anything else I can do?

Lets see if it caused by a conflict.
Do a clean boot. If it works follow the directions. If it does not work, just restore everything

If the above does not work

Type Regedit in search

Hkey Local Machine
system
current control set
Change start to 2

reboot

I did not want to give you this information, it is the registry. It will work, but you screw this up you screwed the computer. Start with a system restore point so you can go back. Also back up registry first.

It is not hard to do, but if you do it wrong, your computer will have problems.

Ok nevermind I found it. I rebooted my computer and I still can't get the thing started.

I actually didn't see a start, but there is a (default) type REG_SZ which is what I changed.

You put your cursor on schedule and you will see start. (redgdword)
Put the old change back to where it was.

If you do it right, it should work. The reg is the brain of the computer. If it does not work, I exhausted my ideas.

Hm, I don't see schedule

All I see CurrentControlSet when I double click are the subfolders

Control
Enum
Hardware profiles
Policies
Services
