    Open Notepad and paste the following code:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WaaSMedicSvc]
    "Start"=dword:00000002
    
    
    1. Save the file with a .reg extension, for example, WaaSMedicSvc_Automatic.reg.
    2. Double-click the .reg file and confirm the changes to the registry.

    Hi David Reed,

    Thank you for posting in Q&A.

    The start type of the service is determined by the Start value of the service. Since you have already set the value data to 2, the start type of the service is currently Automatic.

    Best Regards,

    Ian Xue
