Windows 2000 Services

  1. When I go into services to enable a disabled service. I right click on the service to view properties, the properties page does not come up. Then when I close the services console it wants me to close all the property pages first.

    I am trying to enable client services. I have changed services many times before. This is the first time I have seen this problem.

    It's possible you have a service dis-abled that client services is dependent on...

    Thanks Paito you are right. My question now is how do I enable Client Services. I have a system error "service control manager None" . Is there a way to enable services other than the normal method in administrative tools.

    Look in the Event Log and give us the event-nr.
    Or go to and type in the error description, or even just the event ID and more often than not you'll find info on how to fix it.

    The msconfig utility has a "services" tab where you can enable/disable them.

    If you download the pstools kit from then you can use the "psservice" command to enable/disable/start/stop Windows system services.

    You could also head over to BlackViper's site...
    He has a handy little script there you can Dload that returns all your services to the default XP settings...

    Thanks Patio.

    After reading Black Vipers web page I realize it was RPCrs service that I disabled I then went to ms support and used regedit to enable RPC.

    Thanks again.
