W2KPRO None of the services will stop?
Posted on 2003-02-24
I have WIN 2000 Pro on a laptop. A friend of mine borrowed it and had some trouble. He tried to solve his problem by starting all(i mean all) of the services on automatic. Now i cant shut down any of the services. they start to close but about half way on the progress bar it slows down (1 bar every 30 sec) after it reaches the end it says that it failed to stop the service.
I tried starting up in safe mode and resetting the properties for the services to manual or disabled to know avale..the hour glass comes up but the service proerties do not change. i have to use task manager to end the program. any suggestions that may help me get these services stopped.. thanks
