Thought I'd try to get some insight here -before- I drive myself nuts and spend hours troubleshooting why I can't get the device manager to start. I even went to the system32 folder and tried to run it from there. Also from the start menu, services, performance monitor, computer management, etc... won't run. I'm sure something disabled it, however narrowing down the culprit isn't what I want to do on this Sunday afternoon. Any known issue's you may provide would be helpful, thank you.
