    Windows 8 ?

    I need to reaccess c:\windows\system32\services.msc

    Hi. I'm brand new here, which I'm sure you'll be able to tell shortly.

    I play Farmville 2 all the time. I have for months. All of a sudden, about a week ago, the game kept crashing. Upon inspection, it turns out that windows system files were using a high amount of cpu. So, I attempted to go in and disable some, according to these directions:
    What is svchost.exe And Why Is It Running?

    I was very impressed with myself for not needing my husband's help. After a few minutes, I went to check on the usage using the task manager. Well, apparently, I disabled it. AND THE SERVICES!!

    I have no idea how to get it back. After searching online for an hour, I've resorted to asking for help. I'd like to re-enable what I disabled.... and then leave it alone for my husband to look at.

    Please and thank you for your help. If you haven't noticed, I had no business touching things and I'll never do it again.

    If you might be able to tell me what my husband *should* disable to get rid of the original problem, I'd greatly appreciate that as well.

    The easiest way to fix this is to do a System Restore to before you disabled the services. See here:
