Live and learn..

I went into msconfig and started unchecking some of the services. Upon my next boot, guess what... it wouldnt boot. hehehe No big deal, you can always recover. During the boot process if you keep hitting F5 until you get the menu screen, you can choose "boot unto last known good configuration" and all will be good. Just remember to change anything that you changed before.

I never played with it some more to figure out what exactly was stopping the boot, but I figure it was some of the "remote services". Anyways, the moral of this story is that even if you uncheck the incorrect service, you can recover. So why not make it a learning experience.

Now that's really cool. Thanks for that tip. I probably will end up having to use that sooner or later with my, "can't keep my hands off of shit" nature! Heh heh.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
