    This is a Batch script which can be used to set all Windows services to the default state.

    It is useful in the case you have a system with messed up services startup configurations and need to repair.
    It will automatically detect your version, edition and build and use a customized configuration for your installation.

    This script also contains some small piece of VBS code to automatically elevate this script as admin.
    It is never extracted, but instead directly run from the script, so no fear of junk files.

    Code:
    RestoreServicesDefault.cmd
    Code:
    <!-- : Begin batch script

    Changelog:
    Deleted a unused function I forgot to remove.
    Slight change to Windows edition and build service split check code to make logic more easily to read and use.
    • Slight change to Windows edition and builds check code to make it easier to be lazy add stuff and make code feel cleaner.
    • Added some extra help text to errorcode 1060 info string.
    First release of script.

    Note that while I have checked to make sure that nothing breaks, I can not make guarentees, so use at your own risk.
    If anything breaks because of a wrong service config, please report back so I can fix that :).

    Credits to BlackViper.com for his service configurations which helped me save lots of time for testing.
    I will update as I find more Windows services I may have forgotten.

    Um.. yes, it does.
    I am so used to adding that piece of code that I forgot to put this in the post and title...
    It is used to automatically elevate the script to admin.

    I also edited out the VBS code where it tries to query to winmgmts, incase this service was disabled, making VBS potentially fail.


    Btw, It's (Visual Basic Script), not (Visual Basic Script Script) ;).

    Oh my, it seems in the little time I had to edit and post, I not only made a spelling mistake, but also broke the VBS code...
    Anyway, all fixed now :).

    Who knows, maybe somewhere we might have a B Script language somewhere.

    Edit: Oh there is, nvm then.

    They do, but some people will always doubt it. As for default Windows setup, its slowness makes me vomit, until I apply my tweaks. :cool:

    They are not wrong, because if your system is unusable and has no network connection, it will probably stay speedy (except you will hate yourself).
    Don't forget to also disable all your external ports (USB, PS2, etc), that way it will keep this state, forever.

    While your at it, follow all of ThioJoe tutorials, so you too can double your computer speed and quadruple your internet speed for free without doing anything!

    PS: Don't follow these steps if you don't want to bring yourself trouble.


    Btw, should I also add XP SP3 and Vista SP2 to this list?
    I was wondering even though these are quite the fossil software's, maybe I could do for history purposes.

    Although, not adding these two might also someday encourage people to upgrade to something which is supported.

    Ofcourse, if your definition of 'right intention' is to make sure people learn not to follow stupid steps.

    Anyway, what are your thoughts on..
    Good idea or waste of time?
