    It would appear that when I reboot or shutdown, that the services in the ADMIN Tools do not stay as selected. Is there a setting that could have been change that saves this index?

    hmmm

    I never heard this...are you doing these changes as ann administrtator?

    do you hit apply when you make the changes?

    is there a sandbox that prevents these changes from occuring?

    I have made changes as administrator and have been using the information at blackviper.com as a guide. I have been indulging in this service area for a couple of years, and have yet to have any problems, until recently. It is almost like it is "Plug and Play" that does not stay. Then the other services fail. It could be the ones that are failing are directly dependent on PnP? Selecting APPLY? It is possible I failed to do this....

    Have you checked the dependencies of PnP by right clicking?

    This one was disabled.

    Windows Management Instrumentation


    Provides a common interface and object model to access management information about operating system, devices, applications and services. If this service is stopped, most Windows-based software will not function properly. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

    But I just checked it and it is on Automatic, but is off?

    Beacuse one of the services this depends on is off. e.g. Event Log
