Services Error 29

  [DELETED] 14:36 21 May 2006


I have just purchased a new HDD following the failure of my Maxtor disk.

After installing XP Sp2 whenever I try to view the Service list I get

"A Runtime Error has occured. Do you wish to Debug?

Line: 29
Error: Unspecified Error"

In a message box. I can't debug because the JIT debugger isn't installed + I haven't got round to installing Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional yet so can't use the debugging tools in that.

Any suggestions?

(PS. I backed up regularly using GenieSoft Backup Manager v4 from a PC Advisor Cover DVD and when restoring just now it was fast and speedy, thanks PC Advisor for another great program on your cover DVD!)

Thanks in advance.

I've just used System Restore to regress to before SP2 and Services works fine.

Reinstalling SP2 now..

After a reinstall it works :)
