    Can't do Safe Boot (options 4 & 5) to set msconfig back to normal startup. I get a message saying that the Administrator file is no good. I have had to reinstall Windows 10 four times (!) already. Help!!!

    Hello GregH,

    I did a format on hdd and did a clean install of win 10x64 home,

    I posted a message for LFSVC service (geolocation service) not working if i used msconfig.

    The solution is to boot into Safe mode.

    1: Hold shift while in start menu, and press restart.
    The win re environment will load.

    2: select parameters

    3: computer reboot, select option 4 or 5 to choose safe mode.

    4: In safe mode, right clic on start menu, and run administrator command prompt.

    5: wright "msconfig " without " and " then press enter

    6: in ms config, select normal boot, and check it activate all services in services menu.

    7: leave ms config and click restart on the box that appear.

    8: enjoy, Geoloc is working again, and if trying to run the service manually, it won't complain again about missing file.

    ps i had the same problem playing with msconfig settings when i did a in place upgrade of win 7.

    There is something that need to be fixed with msconfig or geoloc service, by microsoft maybe ?
