But that will only start the driver/service for the current boot.  It
won't set it to start automatically.  (Also, you need to be a local
administrator to run this, so it doesn't really fix the problem.)

The way to set the startup mode is with sc.exe, as in my last email.
Or, use device manager.

(Actually, thinking a bit more, I found a bug in my sc command lines.
They should be "sc config <service> start= automatic", not boot.  Boot
is way too early.)
