    I was having an issue with my print spooler resetting itself to the stopped setting and manual after each reboot or shutdown. I apparently fixed that one (however, not entirely sure how I did it). But now all of a sudden, I have another service doing the same thing. My Acronis Backup Scheduler service is resetting itself to Manual from a setting of Automatic and started after each shutdown and restart. It never had an issue until yesterday. No updates to that product was done in the last few weeks. It is the most current updated software for the product.

    Is there anyone that knows why and how these settings can begin doing this? And how to fix it?

    Are you sure that you are clicking "Apply" after changing them? Most of the time, clicking OK is the same thing, but not in services where the change could potentially be very important. You will need both, "Apply" first.

    I did a virus scan twice with two different AV programs. Clean. And yes, always hit Apply.

    I took a log at your link but I feel a little hinky about using it. Not sure what it may or may not do to the services that are non-Microsoft related. Ideas?
