Is there a way of resetting all services on a workstation or server back to the default setting they should be?

e.g reset the status, startup type and log on as back to normal defaults?

Thanks....is this a case of manually changing each one or maybe creating a script to run multiple sc commands?

Do you know of a list for win2k3 as well?
