Windows 7: Services restore

07 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Services restore

Hey guys, I have a stupid mistake and I wonder if you could point me the right way. We were playing COD 4 LAN game and I served the game but I needed to reduce the system load by disabling some services and some windows features. Now we've finished the game I returned those services from the list that I got from a website but the problem is that the option to ENABLE DESKTOP COMPOSITION and ENABLE TRANSPARENT GLASS cannot be seen from the visual effects tab. I'm just hoping anybody here knows the default services and windows features that are running and activated in windows 7 home premium so I could follow them. I should have made a list, I'm kinda stupid I know... Please help out...

The easiest solution is a system restore to a point before you started disabling any services.

You could also go into msconfig, click the Services tab and check Enable All.

My guess is that one of the services you disabled is Desktop Window Manager?

hi there is a great program to check your start-up services etc its Autoruns for Windows v11 By Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell

WEBSITE >>> Autoruns for Windows
This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.

Autoruns' Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option helps you to zoom in on third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system and it has support for looking at the auto-starting images configured for other accounts configured on a system. Also included in the download package is a command-line equivalent that can output in CSV format, Autorunsc.

You'll probably be surprised at how many executables are launched automatically!
