  3. well i need to change some settings there, and the window is blank. there's nothing . no user name, no change options . nothing. plus i just noticed that when i go to administrative tools>services and then go to properties of any of them and click on dependencies tab i get error saying '" win32:the dependency service or group failed to start"
    how do i fix this?

    Hmmmmmmmmm

    sounds like something got corrupted, reboot, and see if that don't clear it up, if it doesn't and u recently installed something, do a system restore back to like right before this nonsense started, if that don't work, do a repair job.

    sound's like a problem with your dependences. certain part's depend on outher's. have u changed anything in administrative tools>>serveces?

    there was a post a few day's ago about which serves it is safe 2 change. try reading it...
     
  6. reboot didnt help, and i do not use system restore. it's disabled. and i have been messing around with the services, which i think i did from that list.

    just cheak through the list of dependences. u should really have set them all 2 "safe" 2 begin with + only do a few @ a time. if u can remember which 1's u changed work backward's.

    I continue to wonder why I keep seeing this in posts on this forum - system restore has saved my butt on numerous occasions and would be a worthwhile try in this case - if it were an option!

    :confused:

    Not trying to be flame or insult or anything - but I would just like to know why so many folks disable system restore!

    Is there something negative going on with system restore that I have not found out about yet???
     
  9. i will try to mess with services again, and i've disabled sysrestore to have more diskspace, and dont like it working in there all the time.

    I agree damnyank, System Restore has saved my bacon numerous times, if it's a disk space problem, there are ways to limit the amount of system restore points.

    But, people have to find out the hard way, good luck mafiafromrussia, I really do hope you get this fixed without having to do something drastic.

    :cool:
     
  11. i have managed to get dependencies to work again, no luck with user accounts, but i dont need it that badly now. i'll try to figure it out by turning on/of services by 1or 2. and the most drastic thing that i can do is format, which i dont really fear a lot :) . just have to find out how i do that on ntfs system

    When I check it, it doesn't show the Administrator either, just my own account (I don't log on as Admin) and the Guest account.

    Have you tried CTRL Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Local Users and Groups to see if what you need to do can be done there?
