recently established several hardware profiles to control which services are running for each and found that if a profile booted with say windows audio disabled, when I launch services.msc the services window locks, not responding. the service is not enabled as configured for the profile, but wondering why this issue with the services.msc. also, when I boot back to any of the profiles with the noted service enabled, no problems with services.msc and the service enabled. note, windows audio noted for specifics, but I do not consider this a service specific problem.
configured for the local computer, in log on. nothing fancy. lastly, I have let the machine sit and wait to see if the services unfreezes. no.
since xp is a very mature platform, I am sure I have missed something to explain this.
what is/are the possible reasons for the services window, the one with the listed services, to lock?
