Thank you for that advice Steven. I will pick up "filemon" and see what
it tells me. I had previously right clicked on the services.msc file to
see only that it was not "hidden" or "read only" but I am not aware of
permissions based on the user or group (or even how to tell what those
permissions would be for any particular file).
It may be interesting to note that "Start, Run, msconfig" seems to work
in that it pops up a "System Configuration Utility" which has a
"Services" tab which seems to also let me turn off and on services
(although this GUI seems less functional than the "My Computer",
"Manage", "Computer Management" GUI.
I'll run filemon on the c:\windows\system32\services.msc file and let
you know the results.
Thanks for the advice - this is interesting - if a bit frustrating,
