Services Settings


I have been trying to maximize the performance of my rig since i only have 4 gigs of ram and my ancient 1 year old mobo can hardly cut it with windows 7 (sarcasm intended). So, i have been fiddling with services but i occasionally mess things up and i end up painstakingly trying to reset those service back to their defaults, one at a time. How hard could it be for the services panel to have a ‘default" or "reset" button? So when people like myself (i’m not very smart) mess up a setting, we can simply click "reset" and the ole’, comfy, default services fix my screwup. Are there other ways to do this other than the aforementioned "by hand" method. Software? Utilities?

Interactive Services Detection Error

On bootup this morning i have been bombarded by a 'interactive services detection' dialog box - i've never heard of the program and am unsure what to do with it. Closing out the dialog box will make it disappear for roughly 10 or so mins, on which it will then return. I had a bluetooth detection warning or error this morning as well(i didn't see what it said before it went away).
 
I'm running win7 x64  on an alienware laptop - i ran mcaffee as well as some other security programs  and nothing popped up with an security issues - so i'm guessing that this is actually a windows program(although i have not heard of it). I went through google and a few of microsoft's sites and have yet to find any information regarding what the parent program is, what it does, how to disable it, etc.
 
I bought this laptop new, around 6 months ago and this is the first time i've ever encountered this particular error/dialog box - i did not install, download, or change any programs recently(within the past week, minimum). So i'm a little stumped as to why this is coming up now - with no changes to my system. So if anyone could provide some help/literature  on what this program, it's parent program, and anything connected to it does, is, etc and if this program is in actuality a virus or just a program, and to what i should do with it(delete, repair, etc) would be greatly appreciated.
 
>Win 7 x64
>Alienware laptop
>Most if not all drivers, updates, etc downloaded and applied
>Wireless router, bluetooth printer/fax(not connected to this laptop)

Terminal Services Default Printer Issue

In this message, the user is having trouble in windows 7 losing the default setting on a printer. Alan morris from microsoft chimes in noting that this is an "old" terminal services issue. I believe i am having that terminal services issue. I use remote desktop to my office workstation. I have my home printer's driver loaded on this office workstation so that i may print to my home printer when remotely connected to my office pc from home.

When i break that connection - usually by just closing the mstsc window - my office pc does not return the default setting to my typical default printer. Either my default setting is lost entirely (no setting at all) or the quickbooks pdf printer gets set as the default. Can anyone help? Especially since this might be an old issue related to terminal services?

Active Directory Domain Services Unavailable

I'm running windows 7 and after the last set of updates (4/15/2010) i can no longer access the print servers (version 2003). It gives me the message: active directory domain services unavailable. I have verified that dns is set up properly and have tried without the firewall active. I have also tried doing a system restore but that failed to fix the problem. I suspect a registry issue as i have the same problem regardless of what problem i try to print with.

I am also now having a problem with adobe and am getting the error message: unable to print: no pages were selected to print. I noticed that these patches are for patches. I am also unable to use the diagnostics program because it says i do not have the "download a file periodically that helps determine system problems" box " checked even though i do. My computer is a tool that is useless with out this ability.

Active Directory Domain Services Not Available At This Time

I know this has come up before but i am at my wits end and i seem to have tried everything. I have a dell studio laptop running windows 7 connected by wireless to a bt home hub. It is connected, i thought locally, to a hp laserjet 1100 printer. Recently, suddenly, it refused to print out of word 2007 (and excel 2007)and the error message above has been displayed. I have tried re-installing the printer, both as myself and as administrator. I have tried troubleshooting, but this reconnects as a network printer and nothing happens.

I am not expert enough  to start doing professional things. Is there a fix or will i have to but a new printer? The annoying thing is that my imac works fine, but for some things i need to communicate via windows.

Media Player Network Sharing Services Issue

Right after i go on line media player network services grabs 2gb of memory and 70 percent of the cpu usage, and the hard drive usage light comes on solid - this makes using the internet almost impossible since the clock is on for several minutes at a time - this computer is only used by two 'users' and only has a limited amount of stored music, no videos or tv shows - how can i shut off the service - or restrict it's ability to consume resources. This is an acer aspire 5532 with 3gb memory and a 160g hdd.

Services Explorer.exe Don't Work

I have windows 7 32 bit home edition installed, when i start my computer after logging in there is a message that says "c:windowssystem32system profile desktop not accessible, check user-name and password. " In the middle of the screen and my desktop is all black with no icons. In the lower right hand corner a bubble that says something along the lines of "could not connect to user profile service, this may prevent normal users from logging in" pops up as well. Anything i try to run either does not respond or says "the server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect.

Check user name and password.initially i did a clean boot and it brought back my desktop and allowed some programs to run (such as eclipse, skype, calculator and others) but i was still unable to get explorer.exe to run. However this no longer works although this functionality will come back seemingly randomly at times. The only thing i can think of to fix my computer is to re-install win 7 but i don't have a disk, i only have the download on my computer and last time my desktop came back i tried to run it but i got the "this service cannot be started" message. Safe mode works, there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with it other than the fact that it is safe mode and doesn't have full functionality.

I can't do a system restore as it seems i accidentally turned it off at some point and there are no restore points. I have tried sfc /scannow with no success. I tried looking for problems with registry keys but i haven't been able to find instructions on how to fix possible problems related to this in win 7 and seemingly similar problems in xp/vista don't seem to have the same structure for registry keys. Does anyone have any ideas as to what i can do? I'm at a loss and can't think of any thing else to try.

Local Network Service Memory Footprint And Services

I've just upgraded from windows xp to windows 7 and i'm examining what has been installed and trying to remove things which i dont use.

For example i have removed all drivers i dont use or need (like qos) from the network device.

Yet i have services like ssdp running - strangely enough i know exactly which devices i have on the network and the computer is directly attached to all of those and should in theory not need to have any discovery services running.

How can i manage which services are running and control what exactly ia being run on my computer network ?

I notice the local network service has a foot print of around 100mb regardless of wether i'm connected to the internet or not - i cannot understand why this service has such a large foot print. How do i control what is being run in this service, is there any way to stop the service from running and only start it if i need to use the network ?

I also wish to stop tcp/ip helper service from starting as there is no reason why anyone shold need echo requests from my computer, i could disable this by uninstalling the driver, is there anyway i can do this ?

As far as i understand i dont need ssdp, ntfs, tcp/iphelper, dtc, fdphost, grouppolicy client, homegroup provider, network list, nla, ftp server, windows connect wifi (i dont use wifi), windows media network sharing, .

Some of the other services look doubtful to me as well.

How can i reduce these services which i certainly dont need at the moment ?

Error - Active Directory Domain Services Not Active

Printer keeps going "offline" and i get "active directory domain services not active" error message. I have a 2 month old hp laptop with windows 7. I had a hp photosmart 2710 that kept going off line so i purchased a new printer, epson stylus nx510 and now it keeps going offline. When i do the troubleshooting, it says it is off network. Then i get a message that says "active directory domain services not active" when i try to fix it. I have searched for new driver updates and there are not any available. I think it is something in windows 7.

All Program Settings

I have a question about how to organize my "all programs" settings. When i click start then all programs, all my folders are at the bottom and misc. Files are on the top. I would like to put the folders in alphabetical order and have the misc. Files last. It was easy to do on all the other window's programs but i can't seem to find a way with windows 7.

Regionalization Settings

It appears that when i change the regionalization settings to prc china, all menus become chinese regardless of how i configure it. In xp, i was able to change this and the menus remained in english. My problem is that with visual basic 6 programs, the text is not unicode. In order to read chinese in my program, i need to maintain english menus but support chinese as big 5, etc and not unicode. This effects microsoft sapi function for foreign languages. Does anyone know how to configure this?

I recently purchased a new laptop - sony vaio - with windows 7. My issue is that my 'mouse' settings will not open up. After i had installed a usb "mircosoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000" which seems could have caused this, but have uninstalled it and same thing is happening being able to open the mouse settings. Also restarted multiple times.could it also be something messed in the registry. I am able to open everything else with no problem. It also shows that it is thinking (circle thing) when i attempt to open it. No error message or anything pops up.

Keyboard Character Settings

I just today picked up a new acer laptop with lots of bells and whistles, including a pre-loaded copy of windows 7 home premium. I asked for professional but i digress. My question is this:

The character settings for my keyboard appear to be stuck on french candian and none of the keys are working as i need them to. (At least that seems to be the problem as far as what i could find in windows help states. ) For example, to capitalize a word i have to turn on the caps lock button just for the first letter. If i want to use the @ symbol, as you would commonly need to for things like typing in your email address - i have to first go into to the character map, select the right symbol and copy it, then paste it into whatever i am working on. Shift 2 brings up this - " (a quote symbol) - instead of the @ symbol.

I have gone into the language bar, selected the us standard option - and have pressed apply, then ok, then checked to see if it works. The file path is showing that it has been changed to us standard, but it is still typing everything in a canadian french keyboard layout! I have repeated this function several times, and tried every way i could think of to find an answer in the windows help menu.

I am way behind in technology so if anyone can help, can you please do so in really simple clear terms? (Even that question mark had to be copied and pasted. In fact i've had to open up the wordpad to write this, then copy and paste the whole thing here in my plea for help!) Again, if you can help please use very simple steps that even an inept user like me can figure out.

Separate Settings For Two Monitors

I have a laptop computer with its built-in lcd display. I have added an external monitor, also an lcd unit, through the vga port on the laptop. In windows 7, with the screen resolution -> multiple displays set to "duplicate these displays" ((i.e. , The same thing shows on both the internal and external displays), is it possible to have each monitor set up separately in terms of the display model, resolution, etc. ? 

If not, only one monitor can be optimized at a time, either the laptop lcd or the external monitor. I realize that i can adjust these settings for each monitor as long as the multiple displays setting is "extend these displays. " When i have this field set to "duplicate these displays, " the display value is locked on "1/2. Multiple monitors, " with no way to adjust the two displays individually.

Excessive Security Settings

After installing windows 7 home premium, it has apparently decided that i am no longer the administrator of my machine. I cannot access links in office, nor can i make changes to certain documents in word - they are apparently all read-only. I continually get the default message (something to the effect of) "this operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator", whether it's attempting to utilize links in message in outlook, or whether trying to change or save documents in word.

Also, i no longer have access to certain folders on my hard drive. There have been other issues, but i have slowly been able to resolve some of them. I have already tried multiple attempts with the standard microsoft help desk, but they have been no help, and have since refused to answer any of my subsequent questions, and it has now been more than two months since the last time they responded to me.

Cannot Change Backup Settings

I set up windows backup to my drive h: passport, but passport wasn't big enough. I want to backup to "networkmybookworld1public". Now when i try to change the backup settings, i only see h: passport or the dvd drive as options, with the message "windows can't find the disk or network location where backup is being saved". I can't browse to or add networkmybookworld1public. It won't let me change or delete any backup settings, or add or point to "networkmybookworld1public.

It also won't let me 'setup backup' i guess since it was already set up once. How do i delete the original setup so that i can re-setup backup? How do i select or point to networkmybookworld1public? When i go to computer, i see network with mybookworld1 under it.

Settings.ini Is Being Used By Another Process

My gadgets aren't working, neither is firefox. I have a problem with my sidebar, as-well, as a lot of others have on this forum and a lot of others. Every time i start up my computer this message is shown. I tried a clean boot and that took care of the error message, but when i tried running the sidebar it popped up. Besides that my firefox, keeps claiming that another firefox is already running which, from my point of view, doesn't make any sense.

This seems to have started after i tried connecting windows media center to my xbox 360 and there was an error. In searching the internet, i have found that quite a few people have posted this kind of problem, several after a snafu in setting up their xbox 360 for media center, but there seem to be no answers to be found.

Proxy Settings In Ie8

I have both firefox and ie8 and my proxy settings work on firefox but in ie8 i am not able to connect. I go to tools->options->connections->lan settings->here automatically detect settings is already selected and i also select use proxy server and i give the address and port and in advanced i select for all.

Then when i type in any address like gmail.com and press enter a pop up window comes with the name 'windows security' and asks for a username and password. Now even in firefox it ask for a password and username and i give mine and i get internet access but when i give the same password in ie8 it doesn't connect.

Now my main problem is that things like mcafee and infinite other things also are not connecting. So things like updates and other things don't happen.

So i would either like a solution for ie8 or any other way in which windows doesn't depend on ie8 connection settings and uses firefox settings to connect.
