Re: Can't make changes to my sys config
What service were you trying to change? Many, as you may notice in the Dependencies tab, have other programs that are dependent of a service. If a dependent service is related to the function of the Operating System you cannot change it unless you enter in Safe Mode and log on as Administrator, password is usually left blank or is admin.
If you'll tell me what service you want to stop and why I can give you a walkthrough on how to do this or why you shouldn't.
You do not have an infection in your system or have a malware program running.

If still not fixing, go to the PHP line causing the issue and echo the connection details, and see if correct values are there.
if it was running for more than 30 hours, it wasn't doing much. You can try copying hal.dll off of a known, good-working XP pc, and replace it with the one on your broken PC. It's better if you extract it from i386 folder but grabbing it from another pc should work fine.
System Configuration Utility ( Msconfig ) is the Solution
click start and in the run box type msconfig go to the tab that says services and down on the left side there is an option that says hide all microsoft services do a check on it and then click on disable all
