Hi,

I have installed a new software program, but when I try to open it, it just
shows a white window with the name of the program on top left of the blue
bar.

I think the only reason must be one of the services which is disabled, but I
cannot identify which one.

Is there a way to restore the WXP default settings without doing it
manually?
Restore point cannot work because I've changed them in the course of the
years.

Obviously, I'd like to be able to "export" my present services, so that I
can reload them once I've discovered what is the service that prevents my
program to work.

In brief, I'd like to:

1) Export my present services so that I can reload them after.
2) Restore the default WXP ones
3) Do my test
4) Import the old settings I customized. (point 1)

Thanks for your help

Alex

Start > run > services.msc and look under Action for an option to Export
list...

As far as resetting things to original/default - there is no selection for
that; you'll probably have to scroll down the list and try to determine
which Service needs to be started for yourself.

A list of the Default Services can be found in the Help menu for the
Services management console.
