    heh...it's been a while since my last post I love the new look and all the improvements

    I have reinstalled XP but something has gone wrong some of my services are not starting by default. I have to start them manually on evry reboot depending on whatever I have to do. How can I configure the services I want at startup? :confused:

    If you have XP PRO, go to Administrative Tools>Component Services>Services (local) and you can set them to the startup behavior you want there.

    Yes XP PRO...I set all the services to AUTOMATIC but every time I restart windows almost all services are stopped and I have to again start them. I think I am going to have to reinstall ....what a pain!!

    have you run a good virus scan/adware/spyware run recently. From what I've seen recently, new installs get inudated with crap before the av/adaware/spybot gets installed.
