When altering service startup options

If you read my previous post on sorting .NET I hope you will have noted the technique of setting services to manual or disabled whilst working on a server to prevent both slow startups and failures (or accidental user use of the service) during remediation.
Hoist, petard…
I’ve being trying to sort my vCentre boot problem this evening.  Event logs and other stuff not helping.  Eventually… …spotted I’d left a crucial service in disabled mode.  Nice of Windows to tell me a dependant service was not started!
