There's also a program called "SIW" that gives all kinds of details on your system. Don't know if it's a freebie or not.

Opened up this problem again as unresolved, Steve R Jones comments worked so marked thread as resolved/
Checking back all responses I found MARK62 comment " see if 'Help and Support Services are Running' answer NO, neither is 'System Restore'.
Where have I gone wrong?

System Information doesn't function unless Help and Support is running.
With System Restore & Help and Support disabled, I wouldn't say something was wrong. Those are two Services that some users choose to Disable as being two less things running at startup, and aren't really necessary to them.
