    Although the last mod said to use start and automatic, the majority seem to say stop and manual.

    *So, 1-stop(not running) and 2-manual it is.

    I realize the work I put you all through and am very appreciative of your patience and time. My next system recovery thanks you also.

    You can use either setting.

    I would recommend to use Start and Automatic to be safe.

    This is the reason I should not have cross posted. You will read my other message - I really am sorry for confusing things. It was not intentional. Stop and manual did work and kicked Macrium to start which it did. I guess I will never know the default but the image worked and I'll be checking the restore points. Your patience is appreciated and will not be taken advantage of.

    Hi, I don't know if this is the correct thread as I am having problem with win 8.1 not starting correctly,
    I have "Classic Start" installed so it normally starts in desktop mode but it now starts in desktop with NO icons on the screen and I get a message that "Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client Service" and during my investigation I was led to this site because I discovered that Group Policy is triggered by " AllUserinstallAgent" which is missing but is not listed in your Service names list above.
    Can you please advise if this is an omission or am I on the wrong track?
    p.s. when my p[c starts the "Quick start" icons on the taskbar do not work either
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
    Cheers
    Alan

    Hi Alan

    Brink can certainly solve your problem and let's hope he sees this.

    Meanwhile have you tried the obvious tools available to you.
    If your pc was running well at a certain time, you can do a system restore to regain its performance and if that does not work you could recover an image providing you created one.
    Meanwhile I will be researching the issue and report back if I find something.
    Good luck.
    Peter
