Service MMC property is disable ***500

After I reboot my Windows 2003 Server, I can double click on a Service in MMC, right click to use Property doesn't work neither.  The start, stop icons on the toolbar is grey out.

What setting in windows that control this? how can I turn it back on?

Are you loggin in with a user with administrator rights?
are you on a Domain?
Is this server a Domain Controller?

this is a dedicated sever, running alone by itself, no domain, I am logging in as the administrator
open a DOS command prompt
Try to start and stop some service:

c:\> net start
'this shows all started services

c:\> net stop "VNC Server"
'or any other service you think you can stop
check if some error apperas in command line and event logs.
