W2K WS Event Viewer Shutdown audit question

Question: W2K WS Event Viewer Shutdown audit question

I am running Windows 2000 workstation and need to get an audit report generated that documents when the computer shuts down. It will tell me when it is started (Event Viewer: Security) but not when it shuts down. Windows XP Professional will report both.

Q: How do I get W2K to record and report when it shuts down? Is it a registry setting? A local policy setting?

TIA.

Preferred Solution: W2K WS Event Viewer Shutdown audit question

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Event Viewer often shows a Failure Audit Event I.D. 615 when I've been on the internet with a dial-up connection.There is a reference to IPSec services and a suggestion to run IPSec monitor snap-in to further diagnose the problem.I am not aware of any problem while I'm on the internet. I want to understand what this is all about and resolve it.Does anyone know where I can read up on TCP/IP issues?I'm running XP, not on a network, with AVG, Spybot and and Micro Antispyware.

I was looking at my Event Viewer, something I do regularly to make sure everything looks good, and there were two "Failure Audits" under Security.
One was a logon/ logoff one that said "unknown user name or bad password".
The other one was an account logon attempted by the Microsoft Authentication Package.

Both of these failures said they occurred today, 1/7/06 at 1:08pm.

The only time I turned my computer on today was at 9am and again at 11:10am. That is the only time any account logging on was done, and I have the only account on the computer (administrator). The Welcome screen always says "Welcome" and loads automatically since I only have one account.

This link looks like the messages, but I wasn't doing any "Welcome Screen" logging on at the time:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305822/en-us

What could have caused those failures and are they anything to be worried about? The only other set of Failure Audits were from last week with the same two messages.

The only thing that I could have been doing at 1:08pm was checking my emails from Outlook, but I clicked "Cancel" because it was taking too long. Is that what caused it?

I was viewing the security logs in event viewer today (exciting I know!) when I noticed some audit failures. I like things running smoothly so this irked me a little.

I have a number relating to tcp/ip:

Is there a way to expand on Event Viewer's Security Audit? It just shows the user name and Logon ID and GUID and what time they logged in and whether it was successful or not. Is there a way to expand on it? For example, getting it to tell the computer name or IP address or MAC ID of the user that logged in?

I need a way to determine if someone logged into someone else's account in Citrix and Terminal Server. Security Audit tells you when they logged in, and what user name was used, but it doesn't give you the IP address or anything.

Thanks.

I had noticed I was getting audit failures 5061 and was able to narrow it down to Nvidia streaming service. I stopped the service for that but now I don't even see success audits for system integrity. I am a little concerned and going bonkers over this. Using Windows 7 64bit. Ran malware bytes, Norton and Sfc scan and everything came back normal. I've checked my other Windows 7 computers and they all have system integrity checks from the moment the system boots. Am I going crazy or what?

Problem 1
I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, but I have a newly built computer and experienced some strange shutdown problems. When I shut down the computer it hangs for a couple of seconds before shutting down. It sounds like the secondary HDD start up, shuts down, starts up and shuts down again before the computer shuts down itself. This always gives me a critical warning in event viewer saying that the PC wasn't shut down properly.

Sometimes it won't shut down at all, and I have to use the power button on the case. The LED code on the motherboard always shows "D4" when computer won't shut down, which means "PCI allocation error - out of resources". HDD also makes power down/up noises. This problem I have had all since I built the computer, but after I did a clean install of Windows with diskpart, it happened that the PC would randomly shut down or enter hibernation mode with LED code "D3", which means "some of the architectural protocols are not available".

However, if I turn off "fast startup" I experience none of these problems. It happens that the PC won't shut down, just much, much more rarely. When that happens LED code shows "D5" which means "no space for legacy option ROM initialization."
What I find strange is that these codes describe problems that doesn't seem to have anything in common, but the LED codes are only from D3 to D5, which are right after eac... Read more

So I've been in the process of putting together a HTPC. It's a little Habey 800B case with a ASRock E350-M1 motherboard running W7 64 bit. I havent had any issues with it while installing Windows or any of the misc programs (Office, MSE, XBMC, etc). But I recently turned it on in the morning and was going to let it run all day so that I could remote to it from work and work on it when I had a few free minutes. But when I got to work and finally got some time, it showed as being offline??? I figured that it had gone to sleep. So the next day I connected a monitor/keyboard/mouse to it, booted it and it showed that Windows had shut down unexpectedly. I selected the "Load Windows normally" option and then set the power options to "never" sleep. I attempted the same thing the next day, and again it was off when I tried to connect to it???

It took me a few days to get back to looking at it. After booting and messing around with it for a bit it seemed a bit sluggish and froze once, requiring a manual reboot. I checked the Event Logs and took as many screen shots as I could. I posted the screen shots below hoping that someone can give me some info from the Event log info.

Someone here at work suggested I search for the .dmp files to see if they would give any further info. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I just rebuilt with a new motherboard, new Intel 6600K, and new RAM. It's assembled on a table top rather than in the case. All other parts are from an earlier build but believed to be in good shape.

I went to sleep about 14 hours ago with my PC still running. I was doing a backup job that would take a few hours, so I just slept.

6 hours later I woke up and notice that the CPU fan is not spinning. Panic. I didn't know if the motherboard had failed, the fan had failed, or even if the PC was running. Nothing displayed on the monitor.

I shut down and rebooted successfully, getting the "Windows did not shut down properly error".

Looking at logs, I see that the backup job completed at 1236 pm and that the Windows shut down at 1237, one minute later. Coincidence? Maybe.

Windows Reliability History gives no info beyond mentioning the unexpected shutdown.

Event Viewer may have more info, but I'm not familiar enough with it to find anything useful.

Do you have any specific help on Event Viewer?

Also interested in any ideas you may have on the cause.

The local power company says there were no failures today in my area.

The PC appears to be working OK for the last 8 hours since I restarted.

The backup job did in fact complete successfully. All files were copied as expected.

I re-ran the backup job to see if the PC would shut down when it finished a second time. It did not.

The new hardware has less than 100 hours of time on it and I need ... Read more

I'm getting a trio of critical error messages in event viewer after each shutdown:

- "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

- "Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4."

- "The previous system shutdown was unexpected."

The PC starts up fine and seems to shut down very fast - within 10-12 seconds, and there seems to be no issues with startup or shutdown. But when I stumbled onto these critical messages in event viewer I got concerned. What could be triggering this? How do I troubleshoot this? They are logged in event viewer after each shutdown/reboot.

Answer:Critical error messages in event viewer after each shutdown

Try turning Fast Start Up off in the Power Options Menu. Finding the option is a bit obscure. There are some known issues with this. It is on by default in Windows 10 and will trigger shut down errors.

So, I'm having a really weird issue.

I have a pc with a win10 Pro.
It was upgraded from Windows 8. Still in windows 8 the shutdown and the restart took like 10 minutes each time.
Upgraded to 10 expecting this not to happen.. It still does..

After alot of search, I started disabling Windows services a few blocks at a time, and after that 1 at a time.

My conclusion is that when the event viewer service is online, the computer takes forever to shutdown or reboot..
If I disable the service, the computers shutdown and restart are done in a matter of seconds..
I've tested this.

Sooo.. I'm lost here.. Tried sfc /scannow to see if that would fix something, but nothing was detected..

Answer:Event Viewer Service causing Shutdown/Restart slowdown.

You can force it to shutdown. 1000 = 1 second.

Answer:Event Viewer question

Not much detail here about what you are running and who has access.

So, from my crystal ball, that is a security access denied situation which could be caused by someone trying to access OR by a service owned by someone else trying to run.

I know there must have been many who have posted questions about event viewer. I know I saw one while researching; but, I would really appreciate someone helping me with this one as there is no doubt others have seen it.   I just had my OPS Windoiws 7 home edition X64 bit reinstaled as I felt I needed it, by a friend who is in the business, and decided to take a look at the event viewer feeling that all the prior errors surely should have been eradicated.  The only one I could not justify was this one and would appreciate someone giving me some "color" on what it means and if need be what I need to do to keep it from reappearing.   I did the research; but, really do not fully understand it or why it appears, especialy after the OPS was reinstalled.

Okay here's my problem...

We had someone do something to one of the servers at work and when we went in to go look at the Application, Security, and System logs in event viewer, we realized that whoever did the damage, deleted them. Does anyone know if windows caches these logs somewhere else and if there's a utility to retrieve them?

I remember back in the day when we tried to track students' web viewing, they would delete the Internet History, but we just opened up the dat files and found the entire history cached.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
 

Answer:Question about Event Viewer logs for Server 2k3

once the event logs are wiped you don't get them back. if this was a hack they had full admin access to the machine. the only safe bet (because they could have installed a rootkit) is to wipe the drives, reinstall and restore all data from a clean backup.

I was checking event viewer and I noticed something that caught my attention. two days ago on the 16th I noticed this

"Windows Update started downloading an update."

"Restart Required: To complete the installation of the following updates, the computer will be restarted within 15 minutes: "
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Basically I was wondering why didn't my computer restart when it was supposed to? Which was right after the install completed? In the event viewer it even said that the system will restart in 15 minutes but it never did. the next restart was logged on the morning of the 18th.
 
Looked further into it and I saw the same thing reoccurred again earlier 
 
I notice this has happened before as well. I check event viewer and last month I saw the same thing

Answer:windows 8 update question, event viewer

Hi Grecoc38 My guess is that the Windows Update are configured with the following option: "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installation". Which means that if you are logged in and there's scheduled updates to install, your computer will not restart. On Windows 8/8.1, it'll tell you in the Windows Update window that updates are scheduled to be installed on the next restart, while on Windows 7 it used to prompt you a message saying that updates have been installed and to reboot (and you could delay that). In other words, I wouldn't worry about it and consider it a normal behavior of Windows.

Good morning people, haven't been on in awhile but I just got a new rig and I'll be lurking around more.

Anyway I got this screen shot attached to the forum thread that shows what I am concerned with. I used to use event viewer a lot for auditing logons for success and failure but am unfamiliar with the special logon. I hope to get more insight from the public on this. I checked the users folder with hidden files being 'shown' and there's only default, public, and my account name, not sure that this is relevant but thought I'd mention it since I don't got much else.

I am running Windows XP-Home. All of a sudden when I want to shut down my computer I get a box that comes up and it's for "shutdown event tracker". I never had that before and I would like to just be able to select either shutdown/restart/etc. not having to put in why I am shutting down.

What I read is that this was originally for Windows 2000 but in Windows XP this was shut-off. If that is so - why do I get that pop-up?

In the help area this is what I found:
"On Windows 2000 Server products, you will be prompted to supply information regarding why you are shutting down or restarting the computer. This feature is turned off in Windows XP."

How can I get this turned OFF?

Hi All,

In my personal PC`s (Windows 10) Logs/Security I see an event, keyword Audit Success, running all day. When this is happening I don`t have internet. Sometimes there are 5,6 consecutive Access events and it takes 4,5 seconds while which I don`t have internet
connection. Is there anyway to fix this. I talked with my ISP and after two weeks of monitoring and examining the data, they concluded the issue is not with them.

Let me know if you need additional info. Thank you in advance!

I was running 3DMark06 and got a BSOD code 124. After that every time I boot Event Viewer logs Error Codes ID 3012 and 3011. Attached are screenshots of both.

I googled this and found two different threads where someone suggested to rebuild the performance counters. Both responses were basically the same, below is one. Neither of the OP's came back and said if this worked for them.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Re: LoadPerf 3011, 3012
Hi-
I had the same problem with LoadPerf and here is what I found out:
All performance counter names and explain text are maintained in string tables managed by the performance counter subsystem (Perflib).

The current contents of the performance counter string tables are corrupted and cannot be displayed. To correct the problem, rebuild the string tables.

User Action
To rebuild the string tables, on the computer that displayed the message, at the command prompt, type Lodctr /r
The contents of the string tables are automatically rebuilt.

I hope this helps

Answer:HELP need to solve this problem asap - Unable to start event viewer/event log service

Fire up regedit and find this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog

With "Eventlog" highlighted on the left pane, you should be able to see a value called "ImagePath" on the right. ImagePath should be equal to this:

%SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k LocalServiceNetworkRestricted

If you can't see "ImagePath" in that location, or if it's not set to the text above, that's almost certainly your problem. If you're in the habit of using "registry cleaners", that might be the cause.

Hi,

I was hoping somebody could offer an insight on the below, as searching around I've not found much to go on other than "overheating"

Basically my laptop has been having very high temperatures for a long time (usually ~60C for CPU and often 100-110 for GPU...insanely high, in other words) For example, see how hot the machine gets just by resuming from a sleep (this is all within a minute or so):



I have been seeing the following error in event viewer each time I start Windows (4 entries) for some time:



So today I bit the bullet and had the back cover off the laptop and noticed what a bad state the thermal compound was in, for both the CPU and the chipset chip, so wiped it off using TIM Cleaner, and then applied new thermal compound and put the laptop back together. I was actually shocked because for the first time since I can remember, I could feel cold air blowing from the vents of my laptop! I logged into Windows and noticed that my temperatures had fallen and were staying at around the below:



Not as low as I'd like but a massive improvement. Trouble is, I am still getting the WHEA-Logger event errors in Windows Event Viewer ('processor core') and wondered if this was not in regards to overheating after all?

The plus side is my laptop is now almost totally silent - the way it must have been when I bought it new 3 years ago! But I was wondering how to investigate these WHEA-Logger errors, if anyone has any advice that'd be great.

Answer:WHEA-Logger event 18/19 errors in Event Viewer (W7 Home Premium)

I wonder if the processor could have been damaged from the heat. Are you experiencing any BSODs or other problems? You can run Prime95 to test your system. And Furmark for gpu.

My Thinkpad W520 has been having an issue where it restarted prompytly and unexpectedly. I thought the issue might be related to the OS or Video driver, and ended up doing clean OS install with no luck.

Look in the event log. See if there is an error at the time of the restart. I would do 3 things:1) Run a memory test (probably already done)2) Run a HDD test (Do long test)3) Install TPFANCONTROL to monitor temperatures

It's been a while since I've experienced a BSOD as I'm viewing a video on youtube. It would freeze as if the audio was caught in mid-stream then BSOD, then would restart automatically. I go to Event Viewer after windows as loaded and I see Event 41 Kernel-Power in there.

I had this issue before and we found out that the motherboard was causing the issue. I have also replaced my video card and added additional memory and expanded to 16gb. Before, I only have 8gb.

Ran sfc/scannow with no errors found. Going to do chkdsk as well.

It's strange because this does not happen at all when I'm playing online games or even just standard browsing. It's when I play videos on youtube that there would be instances where this would happen. There are other times where I can view them without any issue at all.

Any ideas would be great.

Also, how can I attach the windows DMP file to scale it down as it is just really large?

Thanks again guys.

After too many unexplained problems, I decided to reinstall Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and migrate off of SBS 2011 Standard. In addition to the primary workstation that can't read any event logs, I built five Server 2012 R2 servers (Hyper-V host, Active Directory
VM, Exchange 2013 VM, SQL Server 2014 VM, and WSUS VM).

I was diagnosing why my workstation's Outlook cannot reach the local Exchange Server.   I tried to look at the event logs, and found the
Event Viewer cannot open the event log or custom view.  Verify that Event Log service is running (it is) or the query is too long (whatever that indicates).  The request is not supported (50)
Looking at the directory of the event logs folder.  It appears that most logs are empty, which is understandable since it's a rebuilt installation.  I found a small number of Applications and Services Logs and it appears nothing was logged since
six days ago on 4/4/2016.   On support forums, I found many have this exact problem on Win 7, Win 8, and Win 10.  Of the solutions posted none of them would even execute on my Win 8.1 Pro x64 machine.  I tried clearing the event logs (WEVTUTIL
CL logfilename) and am told Failed to clear log .... The request is not supported.

Answer:Event Viewer Event Id 2002, Source: EapHost, Log Application

Welcome to the forums Marioo!

Have you tried a system restore to a point before these errors started? (Easiest things first) You could also try a sfc/scannow, to find and possibly repair any corrupted system files. We have many fine tutorials here at the forums, written by some very knowledgeable people, heres a link to one if you haven't did this before :

Getting a bit concerned about something which keeps cropping up.

Code Integrity determined that the page hashes of an image file are not valid. The file could be improperly signed without page hashes or corrupt due to unauthorized modification. The invalid hashes could indicate a potential disk device error.

While playing war thunder on steam my screen went black and i couldn't do anything. I restart my computer and play again it crashes. After one more time i look at my event viewer and find critical error event ID:41. I don't whether its the game or my pc.

Answer:BSOD playing war thunder, Event viewer event 41

Critical error - Event ID 41 is (most likely) when you forced the system to restart (usually by holding the power button down).

You have a NETGEAR WG111v3 Wireless-G USB Adapter:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.



I noticed that you don't have Secure Boot and/or UEFI enabled. If you were having problems with it and changed it, please let us know.





It's not necessary to enable it now. But, should you reinstall Windows at some point in the future, please enable it first.

I mention this because it may happen that (one day) the system won't boot. This can be caused by a program changing your UEFI settings, or an update of the UEFI resetting it to default values.

To test and see if this is the cause, boot into the UEFI and see if the settings have been changed. If uncertain, try with Secure Boot both on and off (and the UEFI on UEFI or Legacy (CSM))

If it still doesn't boot after trying this, then move on to other troubleshooting tools as it's not likely to be due to this.

Answer:Event Viewer Event Log Online Help Links don't function

I don't know much about this kind of stuff - but here is what I dug up using Microsoft's Process Monitor and Process Explorer.

The mmc app (event viewer) sends info to one of the svchost instances (netsvcs).

Svchost writes some info to the registry about a scheduled task and then runs that task.

This starts taskeng - which starts wscript.

Wscript runs a temporary VBS file that is supposed to send a URL to the operating system (shell).

The OS is supposed to open your default browser.

Here is the contents of the VBS file from my testing:

Code:
Set shell = createobject("wscript.shell")
Shell.run """C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\tmp78C0.url"""


You might try SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

And let's hope that some other forum member can suggest things that you should check.

My computer seemed to be running more slowly after the Creators update, so I went into the error viewer and found a ton of errors with the source EapHost, Event ID 2002. From Googling around, I found that this error can be caused by leftover keys from Cisco software, so I went ahead and deleted two of the keys referred to in the error logs, and the errors associated with those keys stopped popping up. However, there's a third error that keeps popping up:

Skipping: Eap method DLL path validation failed. Error: typeId=21, authorId=311, vendorId=0, vendorType=0

The trouble is that this doesn't give me enough information to figure out which key I need to delete. It refers me to a node in the registry called WLANProfileCreationUXAuth. There are six subfolders under that one, and some of them contain keys that I can't delete. (Stupidly, I tried, but the system wouldn't let me.)

What I'm wondering is this: how can I figure out which of the specific keys I need to delete? None of them refer to Cisco, as far as I can see.

Not sure if this is the right section, if not please move to the correct one.

Under the details tab in Event Viewer when a logged event has a GUID that shows up in the registry under HKEYLM > System > CurrentControlSet>Control>WM>Autologger>EventLog-XX I know how to disable the event from logging, but Event ID 15 - ACPI does not have a GUID.

Does any one know how I can get this to stop logging? From what I have seen on the web only a fix to the motherboard BIOS would fix it and I doubt that this is high on Asus' list of BIOS fixes for the R6E. Everything I have read on the web says that this is meaningless and in the General tab it basically says to ignore it so I would like to get this to stop logging in Event Viewer.

User Profile Hive Cleanup Service
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...6D-8912-4E18-B570-42470E2F3582&displaylang=en





Overview
The User Profile Hive Cleanup service helps to ensure user sessions are completely terminated when a user logs off. System processes and applications occasionally maintain connections to registry keys in the user profile after a user logs off. In those cases the user session is prevented from completely ending. This can result in problems when using Roaming User Profiles in a server environment or when using locked profiles as implemented through the Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP.

On Windows 2000 you can benefit from this service if the application event log shows event id 1000 where the message text indicates that the profile is not unloading and that the error is "Access is denied". On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 either event ids 1517 and 1524 indicate the same profile unload problem.

To accomplish this the service monitors for logged off users that still have registry hives loaded. When that happens the service determines which application have handles opened to the hives and releases them. It logs the application name and what registry keys were left open. After this the system finishes unloading the profile.Click to expand...

Hope it works as well for you!

A week ago I started getting this warning errors logged three to six times or more per day in Event Viewer.

Event Viewer Warning - Source is e1yexpress - Event ID is 27
Intel(R) 82567V-2 Gigabit Network Connection Link has been disconnected.

Every time Event Viewer logs the e1yexpress warning it follows up with this logged warning
Event Viewer Warning - Source is DNS Client Events - Event ID is 1014
Name resolution for the name isatap.home timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

Not every time, but a lot of times Event Viewer also logs this warning right after it logs the isatap.home warning.
Event Viewer Warning - Source is DNS Client Events - Event ID is 1014
Name resolution for the name teredo.ipv6.mocrosoft.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

Today I installed updated drivers for my Intel(R) 82567V-2 Gigabit Network Connection, but after 11 hours of no logged error warnings they started up again and I got three sets of the above logged in a 90 minute time frame.

My system is two years old and as far as I know I have never had these errors logged before.

My motherboard is a Asus Rampage III Extreme.

Any ideas on how to get event viewer to stop logging these? A google search really did not offer any real clues on what to try other than updating my Intel(R) 82567V-2 Gigabit Network Connection drivers, which did not solve the problem.

Answer:Event Viewer Warning - Source e1yexpress - Event ID 27

Well after trying everything google came up with to try, including updating drivers to the latest version, rolling drivers back to the default Win7 version, disabling SIPS and a few others things I decided to call Verizon and see what they had to say. As soon as I told Verizon Tech Support that my error code was "e1yexpress - Event ID is 27
Intel(R) 82567V-2 Gigabit Network Connection Link has been disconnected", they told me not our problem take your PC to a shop. I called back a couple of hours later and talked to a different person and this time I only said that I was getting the Event 1014 time out errors. They had me do a few things in a cmd prompt and then said we do not know, but we can send you a router, I said fine, I will try the router.

Well it has been over a week since installing the new router and no error codes at all so it was the router!

I am running both a laptop and a desktop with windows 7 pro SP1. I set both these systems up using no password and only the original user admin account as I was the
only one who had or needed access to the systems.  Now my situation has changed and I find the need to add a password to the my user account. 
Doing so causes a system integrity audit failure that I just can’t seem to figure out. 
The error occurs on both machines. Removing the password from the account on either machine fixes the audit failure. 
Without the password added to the admin account (my user account) there are no errors or in any of the windows log files listed in event viewer.

Hello everyone and thank you so much for reading and helping me.
Let me first explain that I am running Windows Vista Pro. For the past few days, my computer has been freezing up as I have been browsing the web. Ctrl+Atl+Del does nothing, I wait to see if Firefox will respond to no avail. I am forced to do a hard shut-down. When I restart, the computer works well for a few hours, even a day or so. Then the freezing repeats.
My computer is up to date with all updates from Microsoft, the Microsoft Firewall is turned on and I have Symantec Anti-Virus up to date and running. (Actually I'm pretty compulsive with updating.)
So I decided to look at my event viewer to see if I could find out what was wrong. BINGO. Every time my computer has frozen up in the past few days, an event is logged as the following:
"An anonymous session connected from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx has attempted to open an LSA policy handle on this machine. The attempt was rejected with STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED to prevent leaking security sensitive information to the anonymous caller.
The application that made this attempt needs to be fixed. Please contact the application vendor. As a temporary workaround, this security measure can be disabled by setting the \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\Lsa\TurnOffAnonymousBlock DWORD value to 1.

Answer:Event Viewer keeps showing Event ID 10010

Hi,

It's a synchronization error. The server trying to sync to a device that is no longer present or was just never there.

Try to disable the following service: Portable Device Enumerator Service (WIN+R > Services.msc) and see if that helps.

Cheers,

Trying to save time for everyone, I'll just say that I looked at Event Viewer today. I've looked at it infrequently, and never could understand what I saw, but today there was something relatively new and scary:

Type: Warning
Date: 9/2/2005
Time: 7:24:03 AM
Source: disk
Category: None
Event: 51
User: N/A
Computer: JohnandCheryl

Further info under help and support said an error was detected during a paging file operation.

The word "disk" scared me, so I checked the entire Event Viewer, and found 25 of these errors, from Aug 1 2005 through Sep 3 2005. If this event was cataloged earlier, I don't know, because the Event Viewer only goes back to Aug 1.

I checked System Restore for Aug 1, 2005 and found a couple of things; 1) an accidental MS "update" to NVIDIA GeForce4 MX driver 5.12 -- but we've had the 6.1.7.7 driver for a long time now. The 5.12 screws up the display resolution, big time. I reinstalled the 6.17; resolution is fine; but I'm wondering if this could have something to do with the Event 51 warning.

Also, on that same date, something called Software Distribution Service 2.0 is listed three times, and I don't know why. I don't even know what it is.

Hi, I have a strange thing going on with Event 1 in the Even Viewer.
Event 1 signifies that the computer awoke from sleep (standby/hibernation), see attachment below for illustrations. It shows the time (circled in blue) which is also the time it shows in the list with all the other events, and that is the actual time the event occurred. But if you look on top of the box (circled in red) you see weird times listed over there, in fact at the time that the event take place (9:08 in this case) the times listed above didn't arrive yet. Why are those future times there, and how does the computer write something form the past into the future? I find that very strange. Do you perhaps know how that could happen?

Thank you, I appreciate it!

Hi there,

It's my first time posting on this forum however this forum has helped me solve dozens of past issues so thanks

Ok so I've got an MSI GS40 notebook running Windows Home 64-bit. It's a great notebook and runs like a dream. I recently checked my Event Viewer and saw thousands of warnings. Basically the same warning every second. They're all Execution Service - Event ID: 1

I'm really not keen on a system restore or reformat. The hardware is pretty high-end and so it doesn't seem like anything has slowed down but I would like to resolve these crazy warnings.

Any help would be great...

Howdy Gents....And Merry Christmas!!

Have a question...

I was poking around in event viewer and came across a new entry. It's called ESENT and is being logged anywere between 4-20 times a day. I've researched this...and it seams to be tied to Windows XP SP2 and the Windows Update Client Database because it's using the wuaueng.dll and wuauclt.exe files.


I do not have service pack 2 installed....but I'm updated on ALL fixs...so I'm thinking this is a problem with the just the Update Client. After backtracking my Install history...it began appearing in my logs after I installed the "Cumlative Security Update For Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (KB86781)....MS04-025.

I'm thinking Windows Update Installed the new Client software at that time...as that update didn't have anything to do with this. My questions are...

Has anyone seen this on an XP PRo system just using SP1?
Why is it being logged? (I Have autoupdate disabled)

Hello,


First time ever I am posting a thread like this, never thought I would have to.

Anyway, the issue is described below.

Randomly my computer decides to shutdown and restart unexpectedly.

There is no blue screen, it just shut downs and restarts immediately.

I can't really relate the issue to a certain task or running program, it's all so random.

It can occur while browsing the web, watching a film or playing a game.

I have been fixing around with computers for quite some time now and this is my second build.
The components are listed below:

PSU: Corsair Professional Series HX850

CPU: Intel Core i7 2700K @ 3500 MHz

MB: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5-B3

RAM: Corsair Dominator 4x4GB 1600 MHz DDR3

GPU: EVGA GTX580 SuperClocked 1536 MB SLi

HDD: Corsair Force Series 3 60GB

HDD: Corsair Force Series 3 120GB

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Retail

I finished this system about five months ago and it started to act like this since 3 weeks back.

The system is working solid otherwise.

Due to the limited amount of space on the system drive at 60GB I have disabled System Restore.

I have AVG Internet Security 2012 installed along with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware.

I have tried to update system drivers in order to restore the system stability, which are:
USB 3.0 Host Controllers

SATA 3 Controllers

Realtek SFX Drivers

Realtek LAN Drivers
None of the above mentioned dr... Read more

Answer:Event Viewer - Event ID 6008 [Troubleshooting]

Event ID 6008 entries indicate that there was an unexpected shutdown.
Critical thermal event indicates that the problem is related to one of your hardware components not functioning properly that is triggering the computer to shut down.

Check if your CPU is overheating. Also check if the heat sink or fan is functioning properly. If the laptop is under warranty, get in touch with the manufacturer.

If it isn?t, get a good cleaning done for the fan and heat sink with compressed air only if you?re comfortable. Otherwise seek the help of a technician.

In addition, since power supply plays a major role in cooling the computer?s innards check if PSU (Power Supply Unit) is functioning properly.

Other thermal events (depending on your board) can be from the graphics card, bridge chipsets or hard drives.

You may opt to check for third party Thermal Event Monitor software so that you have a brief idea as in what?s triggering the critical thermal event.

Note: Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.

Iastor is your storage driver (for HD or Raid) and often a driver will not respond within the normal range. No big deal but you can update the driver to newest version to see if that eliminates the messages

Dell Inspiron laptop 5558, I7, 6 GB Ram , Win 8.1

I had problem booting the system today after a shutdown yesterday. Blank screen when power up. I powered down and removed/replaced the battery and the system rebooted showing the following errors : Kernel power 41, Audit 1101 and Previous Shutdown 6008. I rebooted the system again and there were no errors.

There were no power glitches during the boot problem. The system shut down several open tasks before shutdown. What should I do track this down or can I consider this a one time event ?
