enabling a service that is disabled requires a change to the registry, so you will need a .reg file configured to set the configurationflag to enabled. Then you can run the following command:

regedit /s <path\regfile.reg>

Open the registry editor (Start/Run/regedit) and navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

(Find the service you want ... if the directory name doesn't look familiar there's a description inside each of the services directorys. Open it to see the description)

 For each service in question, change the "Start" value.

(4) (for 'disabled')
(3) (for manual)
(2) (for 'automatic')

ONLY CHANGE THE NUMBER AT THE END INSIDE THE (  )  !!!!!
