I turned off RAS and can't get it back on.

I read an article saying by disabling this service I would make the PC more secure. I obviously didn't read it close enough and have done something wrong.

Now I can't turn it back on. When the machine starts I have to manually start explorer.exe and then can access control panel-admin_tools-services. When I try to get the properties of RAS and/or other RAS related services, it won't display the properties. When I try to close the services window it tells me to close all properties windows first, and I have to crash out.

I can't get on the web with this machine any more, so any assistance short of reinstalling windows would be great. Thanks.

(I know you;ll probably need more info to fix this (exact services names etc), please let me know what's required and I'll see what I can find).
