I am the Owner of my system, but after messing around with the wrong settings tweaker (my bad, completely--never again!) I appear to have messed up my MMC system completely.
I seem to have disabled my ability to turn services on or off. When I attempt to do so, I get a dialog that reads 'MMC cannot create the snap-in because of current user policies'. I am wondering if the program I used was deliberate malware since I'd not been trying to change policy when playing with it. (I know what 'user policy' is and a little about how it works, but have so far been unable to repair this problem. If it helps, it seems like all snap-ins are shut off this way, not just Services.
Thanks in advance...
