    Can you verify these two services are indeed running

    Windows Event Log
    Task Scheduler

    The registry may have been corrupted/Changed

    Might require a reinstall of Vista, no good way to repair it.

    both services are started/working.


    i have 135 blocked myself (with WWDC) because of http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS03-026.mspx
    should i enable it?

    edit:
    just enabled it and rebooted. it seems to work now. however, i just got an error 'starforce protection driver is not compatible with this version of windows' on startup.
    also, should i be worried about microsoft's aforementioned warning?
