Good news, you can bypass the services editor and try to change the status of a service trough the registry using “regedit”. Here is how it’s done. Go to your menu and start “regedit” by typing it in. Locate this: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ By searching for the “Display name” you can see on your services tool, you will be able to find the same name under this registry folder. Once you found the services, click “Start”: Change service status through regedit Use following values of your choice and click “OK”: 0 = Boot 1 = System 2 = Automatic 3 = Manual 4 = Disabled
