Stuck service

I changed the properties setting on the Logical Disk Manager Administrator service to startup automatically, but now it is always stuck on startup and my pc won't finish booting up.  Is there a way to "un-stick" this service?

can you boot up to safe mode?  If you can, you can edit the registry to have it startup differently.

\\hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\dmaadmin

Change the key called "start" to 3

Thanks, this did the trick. Now I just need to find out why that service won't stabilize. Can't format an external hard drive or assign drive letter because that service keeps bombing out and killing mmc.exe

Thanks again!!
