Instead, seek a reputable, experienced computer repair shop staffed by professionals who can do the job safely and correctly (or send the computer back to the manufacturer for service).
I hope it doesn't ever come to that, but if so, please take this advice.
I hope this helps. In the meantime, try what I recommended in my first post and see what happens. If you find some features you want missing, then just recheck those entries and reboot. Again, it is perfectly safe as long as you stay just with the startup programs tab - do NOT do this in any of the other tabs - especially not the services tab. If you do that, the only resolution may be a clean installation.
