In an attempt of blocking a viral service on my system (which was restarting my system automatically for every 30 seconds), I disabled all the services, and later enabled trustworthy services only.

(note: Hide all microsoft services didn't work blocking the auto restart so I disabled all services)

Now I have been succeeded in blocking automatic restart and I am able to access internet and all other necessary stuffs. Well, however system audio is mute(definitely because a necessary service is not running). Now I need a list of services that need to be started (set automatic) on windows 7.


And, for future reference :)

  • I am aware of this list, and actually the list is too huge to refer. I need to know (just) those service which are responsible for enabling audio! – InfantPro'Aravind' Nov 1 '12 at 17:39
  • moreover, when I clicked on hide all microsoft services and disabled the rest, system was still suffering auto-restart. That means, it might be a nagging (system default) service which is doing it or a viral service in the name of windows service doing this job. so list of microsoft windows 7 services won't really help. – InfantPro'Aravind' Nov 1 '12 at 17:41
  • You can always use the registry files for restoring default Win7 and Win7 SP1 services settings. Apply, reboot and if that doesn't help, it must be the fault of some non-MS service or possibly even malware. For that you'd need to check your system thoroughly. – Karan Nov 1 '12 at 17:45
