Hello,

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.

Regards,
Worldvet

Seems like spyware or malware.

download COMBOFIX from majorgeeks. or just google COMBOFIX.EXE
and run it in safe mode

looks like the permissions have been compromised.

Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


Open up the PHP Config File Config.php (File name can vary) where the MySQL DB connection details are entered.
Change the machine source name, user name and password as per the current system config.
If still not fixing, go to the PHP line causing the issue and echo the connection details, and see if correct values are there.

Access Denied


Dear joanmyers,

You may want to try the CONFIG mode to change the time. Press Feature **266344 and depending on they version of the software (i.e, DR5) you may be able to change the time in the system configuration.

Good luck!
