Default In desperate need of basic command script

So, I'm having some problems with automatic services in XP not automatically starting as they should. I've tried all the software fixes I could think of, and none of those worked. And I just went broke trying all the hardware fixes I could think of, too. It's just not working. But once I start the services manually, all is well. So my question is...

If I want to create a batch file, what would the command to start a service look like? For example, say I want to start the service, Themes. How would I do that from the command prompt?

Thank you.

Default Re: In desperate need of basic command script

to start a service you use the following command...
net start [service name]
for example.

net start themes


net start "print spooler"

notice theat you have to use quotes for multiple words as the space signifies a new command.
