    From the task manager, go to the services tab and start the service.

    It's easier to just do what Shåwa said. You have to wait for Task Manager to open or at least the last time I used windows.

    Well, if you didn't know the shortcut (I didn't, don't blame me because I use Mac OS X and Ubuntu more then Windows), then you would go with what Shåwa said.
