The Extended view of Services Management Console (services.msc) displays the service description and also has links to Start or Stop services. In some systems, the Extended view may appear blank, as in figure below:

This has to do with broken JScript.dll registration. To fix this problem, login as Administrator or equivalent, and then run the following command from Start, Run dialog:

regsvr32.exe  jscript.dll

Press {ENTER}

You should see the output "DllRegisterServer in jscript.dll succeeded."

regsvr32.exe  mmcndmgr.dll

This fixes the Extended view. Close and re-open Services MMC.
