I have a laptop running Windows XP Home and the majority of the services that are set to automatic( DHCP CLient, MSIServer etc... ) do not start and I do not get an error message. The Manf. states this must be a registry corruption problem. My temp workaround is a batch file that has about 20 services listed with a net start.
Does anyone know what may be the cause and a permanent fix outside of blowing away the OS and reloading?
