    The Start Orb is the ble ball with the windows flag on it at the far left of the task bar.

    Alternatively, you can go to Start Orb > Control Panel > Administrative tools > Services

    "Doesn't work" covers a large area. Please be more specific about what happens when you attempt to access the Services applet.

    You can also click on the Start Orb, then right click on Computer (or My Computer - I don't remember what it is in Vista), then click on "Manage". When the Computer Management app is finished loading, expand "Services and Applications", then click on "Services".

    There is no 'Administrative Tools' in the Control Panel.

    Never mind. Your suggestions don't work. I don't know what version of Windows you're using, but it is different thgan my Windows 7.

    I'll go somewhere else for a solution. I certainly hope you don't m onitor any other threads.

    Cool

    What OS are you running?
    In all windows 7 there is an 'administrative tools' option in control panel its the second one in the list or top of second column.

    or just type 'services' (no quote) into the search box when click on start Orb. It will show up in top of box then click on it to open services.

    All typing errors are my own work and subject to patents pending. Except errors by the spell checker. And that has its own patients.

    With response like that you are unlikely to find anyone willing to try and help you.
