    0:50 You don't need to change the startup type of the service, just to have the service down for a while. That feature only works on startup of your computer anyway, and you are not doing that. But you are changing from "Delayed Start" to "Automatic", but you won't see the result of that since you are not restarting. The actual mode YOUR service is in, may be anything, so you can't assume your case. What if it was set to Disabled ? Wouldn't you need to actually update ?
