    Hello Alan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The Windows All-User Install Agent (AllUserinstallAgent) service only exists in Windows 8, and not in Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 Update.

    A system restore as Peter posted would be a good idea to hopefully sort this for you.

    It would be better to start a new thread for your "Quick Launch" issue though to keep this one on topic. I'll keep an eye out for it, and be happy to see what I can do to help.

    Hi Brink
    I am sure all my problems are interconnected.
    Clicking restore does nothing
    Cheers

    If you haven't already, see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot instead.

    Hi Brink
    Eventually system restore opened, (a bloody long time after I selected) and I was able to invoke a restore which fixed my problems (the restore took about half an hour).
    Just in case I need it where do I find the right click command menu in win8 when a third party start menu is installed?

    Cheers

    That's great news Alatel.

    Some 3rd party Start Menu programs have options that'll disable the WIN+X menu, but here are some different ways to open it though. If you can't open it, then double check the settings in the program to see if it may have an option to enable the menu again.

    Hi Brink,
    While I try to use the Restore Point, a message was pop up saying "System Restore could not start up". The same, no tab system protection tab is available when I try to acess thru system protection menu.
    Advice me which service name should I download to enable back Restore Point service.

    thanks in advance

    Default Services Conflicts with other sites


    I'm attempting to determine the actual service start-up default settings for a few specific services in Windows 8.1 Core, Pro & 8.1 Updated. The confusion results from conflicts between a few popular sites: A. Eightforums.com (here) B. Black Viper's Windows 8.1 Default Services, C. batcmd.com windows 8 services, & D. winhelponline.com The 4 services in conflict are: 1. Background Intelligent Transfer Service, 2. Device Association Service, 3. Program Compatibility Assistant Service, & 4. Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service The default start-up settings listed for the services on these sites are: 1A. Automatic (Delayed Start) 1B. Automatic (Delayed Start) on 8.1 List, Manual inside Windows 8 & 7, 1C. Win8 = Automatic (Delayed Start), Win8.1 Pro = Manual, all other Win8.1 = Automatic 1D. Automatic (Delayed Start) 2A. Automatic (Trigger Start) 2B. Manual (Trigger Start) 2C. Manual 2D. Automatic (Trigger Start) 3A. Automatic 3B. Manual 3C. Manual 3D. Manual 4A. Automatic (Delayed Start) 4B. Manual 4C. Manual 4D. Automatic (Delayed Start) I was wondering if there was any possible way to clear up what is happening with these service start-up conflicts. P.S. URLs to the sites listed: A. Eightforums.com (here) Services - Restore Default Services in Windows 8 B. Black Viper's Windows 8.1 Default Services, Black Viper?s Windows 8.1 Service Configurations Black Viper | www.blackviper.com C. batcmd.com windows 8 services, & Windows 8 Services - batcmd.com D. winhelponline.com Windows 8 Services Configuration Default Settings - The Winhelponline Blog thank you.

    Hello Nub, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    What will be default for services will vary per system based on what settings and hardware you have. I've updated the list here to help though.
