In windows xp, when you type services.msc in the run box, is there a way to reset all of the basic windows services back to factory defaults?? I would like a way to do it with one command instead of going one by one and changing the property from disabled to automatic.

I have a pc here that has been messed with and most services have been disabled.

Let me know your thoughts...THanks for your help!!

No, threre is no such default other than reinstalling them - simply because Windows does not keep track of any service defaults, their settings are set by the respective installers and any administrative user is able to change them.

the information is stored in the registry you can create a registry hack to do this, but again, the creation process is manual.
