    Default List of Win 7 Services

    I'm missing or they are disabled, several system files. I went to Windows support and it guided me to the system configuration program. Reading over the list of services I have found several disabled files and a lot stopped. The help sucks because it only tells how to change from automatic manul and disable, but not what the default settings should be. Is there such a list of default services settings. I don't want to make any changes and screw my computer up any more than it is.
    One of the major files I'm missing is the installer, therefore I can't open a lot of my programs.
    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

    Can you give us the error message you're receiving when trying to install an MSI installer package?

    Actually I get several messages, depending on what I'm doing. When I goto Windows update, nothing happens or I get a message saying the installer is missing. A lot of my programs just wont' load at all. I have also got the error message "access denied, class not registgered" When I went to Advance Security Settings for Permissions I get "Can't open access control editor. Class not registered", even when I'm logged in as Administer. I downloaded the windows troubleshooting modulars and ran them, but they didn't find anything. I also put my Windows 7 DVD in to see if it had a repair, but no go, it just wants to install windows again. I love Win 7, but it is driving me crazy trying to figure out what is going on.

    How to Do a Repair Install to Fix Windows 7

    Run windows updates after it boots to windows
    =============================
    I would remove the anti virus program and reinstall it after the repair
    or
    You can even use MS Security Essentials for free...it has a live malware feature and will auto turn off windows defender as only one live malware program is recommended with MS Security Essentials

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

    I went to the link you posted and I'm having the exact same problem. My son has win 7 64 bit, so I will copy the missing registry section from his computer. I know a little bit about the registry, but not enough to know if I can cut and paste or do I need to insert it by way of a command. I've seen it done, but don't know the command. Can you help me with this, please? It will be later this afternoon before I can get to his computer

    I am not sure the gurus @ Help2Go even want me to post this but here goes

    Using the Registry Editor in Windows 7

    First be absolutely sure to backup the registry

    Disclaimer:Modifying your registry is some pretty serious business; if you are not comfortable with doing it, or assessing the potential risks, don’t do it. The Windows 7 Registry Editor is exactly the same as the version shipped with Windows XP

    Note:Win7 search will not recognize a three letter entry the first time
    IE: you cannot enter reg in search in Win7 the first time...you need to enter regedit...then the next time reg will work too
    ==============================================
    In your case you will need your son's .REG files
    .REG files (also known as Registration entries) are text-based human-readable files for storing portions of the registry.
    Then open reg edit and select new from the edit menu

    Normally...You can expand one of the sections and drill down to the desired registry key. After you find the specific registry key to alter, you can both double-click the key name or right-click the key name and select Modify (but in your case it would be new not modify)

    When you finish, click OK. Your changes are immediately recording into the registry and appear in the Registry Editor

    Final Warning:
    Modifying your registry is some pretty serious business; if you are not comfortable with doing it, or assessing the potential risks, don’t do it, or blame Help2Go or me
    =============================================
    I would let a knowledgeable friend or a computer shop help you if you a have any doubts

    BTW: You can still do a Win7 Repair...the option is in a prior post

    More info
    How do I get a .reg file to install?


    The safe way to install a ".reg" is as follows:
    • Click on Start and then Run...
    • Type in regedit, and then press OK
    • In regedit, click on File, and then Import
    • Enter the filename or otherwise locate the ".reg" file you want to enter, and press OK
    • The contents of that ".reg" file will be entered into the registry.
    Personally, I kind of like having notepad open up .reg files, so I can explicitly see what's in them, and decide whether or not I want to install them. If I decide I do, then the above steps work well.
