Good morning from CT.
In the belief I could speed up start-up, I tweaked the settings on MSCONFIG as recommended on a post I read.
As the caveat explicitly stated, the outcome from this experiement turned out to be quite different from what I had hoped and is the reason I am seeking help.
Among other things, the "Help and Support" does not work and is telling me I have to "start" the service, which seems more complicated than a simple "enable" ( if I can ever find the window/site where I could do that).
System Restore has apparently been affected as well as I can not go back to previous days to select a good starting point.
This is just for starters...I would be grateful for any help !
