After launching services.msc and looking at the list of services, I noticed the following are entirely missing on my WinXP Pro SP2 system. None seem critical, and I may have "lost" them months ago. Anyone know why they might be missing and how to get 'em back?
lol at myself! I visited theeldergeek and examined the descriptions for each service listed in my original post. Guess what? With a few exceptions, all the services are essential for network resources. Never used my PC on a network and never will, so I uninstalled Client for Microsoft Networks and File and Printer Sharing a long time ago.
Removing these networking software components obviously removed the services from Windows. The only bummer is that MBSA 1.2.1 won't work without the server and workstation services.
