"Failed to connect to a windows service" message re: System Event Notification Service

Question: "Failed to connect to a windows service" message re: System Event Notification Service

I have a message coming up titled "Failed to connect to a windows service"
and it reads -



?Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the
System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond.?





Also, the task bar and menu <g class="gr_ gr_46 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" data-gr-id="46" id="46">turns</g> into
a classic style of windows randomly when this is happening. This started happening a couple weeks ago to one device regardless of what network it is connected to.



Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? We have already reset the NIC on the laptop to force all settings to DHCP to ensure DNS is being set correctly. Updated DHCP settings
to disable NetBIOS as it is deprecated and should not be used over DNS for resolution. And we have run the <g class="gr_ gr_45 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="45"
id="45">winsock</g> reset.



How many devices were affected? - Just oneAre you connected to a domain network? - YesWhen did the issue start happening? - The issue started a couple weeks ago and is getting worse

What we have done so far:

-
I have installed windows updates. We reviewed the event logs and found issues related to NetBIOS and connectivity issues with the domain controller. We reset the NIC to force all
settings to DHCP to ensure the DNS is setup correctly. Updated DHCP settings to disable NetBIOS as it is deprecated and should not be used over DNS for resolution. We rebooted after this to reset network components.

Computer Info:

Error Event ID's occurring the most are 5 and 20. Warning Event ID's 27, 129, and 1014. There are more but these seem the most common.





Any ideas would be very much appreciated! We are stumped as to why this is happening.

Preferred Solution: "Failed to connect to a windows service" message re: System Event Notification Service

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.)

My computer recently started having issues........ here is what is going on:
* boot computer
* Windows boot screen displayed ~ 1 minute
* screen goes black. Can move mouse. Drive light constantly on, not blinking. ~ 5 minutes
* log in screen comes up / log in
* Desktop loads ~ 1 minute
> sometimes it loads with regular windows aero theme other times it loads with basic windows classic theme.
* Error message pop up "failed to connect to System event notification service"
* Have to wait for about 5 more minutes before computer is actually usable
* The audio service does not work as well...
from when I press the power button to when I can actually use my computer takes 10 - 15 minutes.

Here is what I have tried so far
*Turning off all start up programs / services
*Tested Memory - passed
*Hard Drive Self Test ---- # 1 - 7 fail / I am guessing that this is the source of the problem, however my computer does still work once everything is finally booted. So I don't know what to do with that information or if that test even matters.
* I have tried looking at the event viewer but every time it says that the event log service is unavailable.
> I try turning on Windows Event Log but that does not change anything
* tried "netsh winsock reset" in command prompt, based on a different thread that I found - it didn't work

Answer:Windows failed to conect to " system event notification service"

This seems to be a common problem, I am now also experiencing the same.
I have Win 7 Home Premium 64. Did chkdsk /r, defragged, tried sfc/scannow scanned for viruses and even tried reseting winsock.
My aero themes are greyed out, when trying to fix it with MS fixit it errors out.
It takes a long time to boot and then says "failed to connect to System event notification service"

One search on google will show this is a major problem, so why does MS not come out with a fix.
This seems to be the biggest frustration with Win 7 compared to XP, lack of support from MS.

Today I booted up my laptop to get this screen - my desktop without an aero theme and the error message on-screen.

Nothing unusual happened last time I used my PC. No installation or updates that I am aware of.

The computer cannot shut down properly now either, it just hangs after the desktop icons are gone. I am forced to hard shutdown.

Please Help !

My HP running Vista Home Basic suddenly gave me the following error message on startup: "Failed to connect to a Windows service: Could not connect to System Event Notification Service".
Among other things, this prevents me from connecting to my internet network, so I can't get on-line.
Rebooting did not help.

Following the google search I used an elevated command prompt (click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator) and typing "NETSH WINSOCK RESET ", then press the Enter key, and then restart the computer.

I still cannot access my internet network, instead of not connection now I get the message "unidentified network" and I still cannot go online although there I have some Mbs

It sais (I do not understand this text )
"What netsh winsock reset command does are it resets Winsock Catalog to a clean state or default configuration. It removes all Winsock LSP (Layered Service Providers) previously installed, including the potential malfunctioned LSP that causes loss of network packets transmission failure. So all previously-installed LSPs must be reinstalled. This command does not affect Winsock Name Space Provider entries."

Please help me with the next step in order to be able to go online from my computer.
Thank you!

Answer:Failed to connect to System Event Notification Service

Usually it's a driver or COM component that's causing this. What does your Application and System event log show you as warnings or errors?

I know there was a thread earlier about the same issue but the solution doesn't seem to work for me.

This is the message i am getting on startup:

"Failed to connect to a windows service.
Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."

The message comes with a very slow start up.

The computer doesn't seem to recognize any of the wireless networks either, so i currently can't connect to the internet either. So i am using a different computer right now.

I am using a Gateway T-1620 with Windows Vista Home Premium 32. Microsoft Security essentials is running and the firewall is down.

Hey all,
I am having an issue with a user connected to our local domain. Whenever they try to log in, it keeps displaying "Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service." I have tried multiple ways of addressing it and have
had no luck with a fix for this. I have tried:

Using 'netsh winsock reset'Uninstall and reinstall network adapter driversClean booting and trying to isolate the issue (did not find anything)
Deleting the font cache Tinkering with the service settings Disabling anti-virus and restarting
System Restore
None of these are fixing the issue for my particular system. It always comes back. The hardest part about troubleshooting this issue is how sporadic it is. It happens every other time the user logs in.

The only other fix I have not tried the hotfix they released for this yet. I don't want to install this until I have exhausted all of my options as this could create more problems.
We have 50+ other computers running Windows 7 on this domain with absolutely 0 issues. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

I am aware this a problem that has been addressed multiple time on this forum and others but am unable to come up with a solution from previous posts.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and have been for years.

I have had no problems previously that I was unable to fix.

This morning when starting up my pc I got the error message "Failed to connect to a windows service"

In addition it has defaulted to windows classic theme and I can not re enable Aero.

I looked at the Event log but it is simply beyond my level of understanding how to address the errors. Also all errors shown seem to be relativity longstanding/ recurring.

I have tried all the common suggestions I could find and none have fixed to problem.

Please can you help

"Failed to connect to a windows service.
Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."
​This message comes with slow start up and shut downs that occasionally freeze. Another strange symptom is that sometimes (about every other time I boot up the computer) it loses the shiny-black Vista theme. Not so much a concern of aesthetic and more a note of wonkiness.

The laptop was sluggish recently and I was doing some cleaning: defrags, registry cleaning, virus/spyware scans, etc. I... have a theory my sweep with CCleaner may have done something it really shouldn't have. I'm unsure what to do about this if it is true though, because although I didn't delete them, all my restore points are gone. I also recently changed the virtual memory size, if that is relevant.

Also uncertain of relevancy, but the worst of it (Service message) began while I was toying around between Pidgin and Trillian. Trillian crashed... something. There are so many event logs now that I'm not able to figure out what it was

I have been getting the following errors when I try to log into my account.

The system event notification service service failed the logon an attempt was made to reference a token that does not exist

I created a built-in-administrator and I am able to get into safe mode though not able to run many programs on it such as control panel and start up repair. I looked at my registry and both of my accounts look fine neither of them had a .bak on the end and so I'm not sure how to fix this if my only option is to delete my user account. I've already done a system restore to a couple days before this happened but, I'm still locked out of everything.

Is there anything else I can do that might help?

Answer:The system event notification service service failed logon ... token does not exist

Google led me to this post as I was researching the problem myself. I encountered the same issue. In this case on a vista32 ultimate box (although I do own an x64 box in case somebody thinks I'm blasphemous posting here ).

I haven't completely fixed the issue yet but I've gotten a bit further so in hopes of helping the next person here are the steps I've taken.

I was able to log in successfully in safe mode (hit F8 while starting up, select safe mode). Once there I went to command prompt (click the start button, type "cmd" [without the quotes] in the search bar and hit enter. From command prompt type services.msc to launch the services control panel. Find the System Event Notification Service, right click, select properties, change it from automatic startup to disabled, apply the change and "OK" out of the dialog box. You can now restart the computer and log in normally.

This isn't really a fix, it's a temporary work-around. SENS is needed for COM+ to respond to things like login and startup events. I've also noticed that my system is very slow right now. My next step is to find a way to generate a new token for SENS and then hopefully I'll be back at 100%. I currently have Dell researching that for me (this happens to be a Dell laptop). If I get a solution short of a reinstall to that one I'll post it too.

Hope this is helpful for someone. Good luck.

Hi i have a couple of users on our network who are receiving the following error on startup "Windows could not connect to the system event notification service service. Please contact your system administrator" When this error is receive i always notice the startup time take an extra 2-4 minutes before it even gets to the login screen. Once logged in the users gets the error after a minute it can automatically go back to the login screen or if you press OK it also goes back. On second attempt it will log in with no errors.

So far form everything i have researched and tried nothing seem to fix the issue. This is what i have checked and done. Oh and these 3 machines that are getting this error are on Windows 7. We get no event viewer message or error about the issue.

-Made sure the services are running and started and set to automatic - mainly the Windows Event log, COM+ etc everything is started as it should be
-Rebuild WMI repository (which did fix issue for a 3 days then returned)
-Netsh catalogue reset and winsock reset
-Tried Hotfix - KB2590550
-Made sure network drivers were updated and the latest
-SFC /scannow
-HDD healthcheck done - is OK


Anything anyone else can suggest would be great or if someone has been able to fix this issue permanantly please let me know???

Hi,

logon on to administrator.

Click the start button

Search "cmd.exe"

Select it and then "ctrl - shift - enter" to allow elevation request

Type in - "netsh winsock reset" press enter

Then Restart your computer"

The problem regarding getting message vista failed to connect to a windows service was solved with that but still many of my files are showing "locked file not tested" and also my laptop gets hanged frequently.

also recently whenever i shutdown windows tend to install updates very frequently and also takes time (20 mins) same goes with AVG scan every now and then it updates..

I have tried 4 times to run GMER scan but each time my laptop crashed (blue screen appeared and dumping physical memory with some error message which i didnt had the time to read some of it even)

I tried in both ways running the gmer scan (sections & C drive ticked and the 1st option).

i have also attached the scan results in safemode in the zipped folder

Hi all,

So this problem seemed to have started after I pulled a flash drive out that was using Readyboost (pulled out while the computer was off). Since then, I always get the "Failed to connect to a windows service" error showcased in this image: (http://i.imgur.com/eBGnS.jpg). My task bar was also turned gray a la Windows 98 style and I'm not able to get it back. In general, I've noticed a much slower boot and a much slower time switching between tasks on the computer. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post all of this but I thought I'd do it anyway.

I'll attach the files and answer any questions that might follow..pretty sure I do have access to the boot disks as well though it's been awhile since I've completely re installed Windows

This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the sytstem. As an administrator user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond". I have restartes in "Safe Mode" and found the System Event Notification , clicked on 2 x and it shows that it is on "automatic". The first failure is on "restart the service" as well as the 2nd failure and third. The windows event log start up says Automatic as well. What i did notice was that on both the System Event & Windows Event Log, the status says, "Stopped". Should I "start the service"? If i boot up in Normal mode, i can't do anything, I can't shut down right or anything. Anyone with any advise? 9/18 o.k this is to update , I booted up in safe mode, I was told to "start the service anyway I could"
Well it won't "start the service while in safe mode" I get error message1084. Now what. I think i may take bcke tio Best Buy!! Any one with any other advise?

Windows 7 64-bit SP15

My Dell Latitude e6420 is having problems as of the past week. An error comes up on every reboot or startup of my machine. The "Failed to Start System Event Notification Service" error would come up on my screen down in the taskbar. Details below of startup:Laptop comes up slow.
Login and once desktop shows that error appears on my screen and sometimes my audio service isn't working (but it can't be the the driver for my video/audio card because sometimes it works and other things will crash meaning a corruption of some system driver.)
Takes 5-10 minutes for machine to fully boot.
Look at event log and shows Event ID Error 7026 every reboot.
I cannot find a fix for this error and nothing seems to be working. Please help with any information. Thanks.

My son has an HP laptop, W7, at college with him. He is 5 hours from me. The laptop is 2 years old, and other than the battery wearing out (he has to keep it plugged in) he's not noticed any problems with it, until the last few days. Every time he turns it on, it takes a long time (5 min or more) to start, and then presents this error (see attachment). I can't really do much from where I am, but I thought if I posted the question, maybe someone can point him in the right direction?

Possibly relevant, his Norton internet security was not current - I renewed mine with a special deal and got a new key, and didn't even think to give it to him. This was about a month ago. So I'll send him the new key, but I don't know how to get him past this error, or exactly why he is getting it.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service. How can i fix this?

More replies
Relevance 93.96%

I have tried each and every one of the solutions on the forums and over here. All my drivers are up to date (double checked), I rolled back and uninstalled all updates, Did sfc /scannow three times and they passed without any integrity violations. I've tried netsh winsock reset as well. The aero is gone, greyed out plus I can't select any other theme and whenever I start up the computer it displays the message "Could not connect to a Windows service".

This started happening about 2 months ago when my laptop ran out of battery in hibernate mode. It didn't resume so I had to press the power button again and then it took about 8 minutes to boot with nothing but a black screen and the mouse there. The audio service isn't running every time I boot up (I have to right click and run troubleshooter to start it).

Does anyone have ANY idea what might be causing this? How do I fix it? I've uninstalled all the software that I installed before the error occured as well.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate on a Sony Vaio VGN-NW25GF. Intel Duo core T6600 and the ATI Radeon HD Graphics 4570 card.

Answer:Could not connect to the System Event Notification Service

I would try a Repair Install as a last resort before running Vaio Factory Recovery from its partition - make the backup disks first as a secondary backup method.

However most tech enthusiasts want the better performance of a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 using the Product Key on COA sticker. Everything you need is in the tutorial.

My HP with Windows 7 suddenly gives me the following error message on startup: "Failed to connect to a Windows service: Could not connect to System Event Notification Service." Among other things, this prevents me from connecting to my wireless network, so I can't get on-line. . Rebooting doesn't help. And the problem occurs regardless of whether I sign on as administrator or as general user.

I have tried netsh winsock reset but it doesnt help

Answer:Could not connect to System Event Notification Service

Same problem exactly. Tried disabling Kaspersky (internet security 2011) and restarting, but no change. System's been buggy all along, so this just seems like the natural progression of things... But no network connection is pretty hard to work around!

For me this started after i interrupted a shut down by closing the laptop - which puts it into hibernation mid-shut down... Which may or may not be a contributing factor.

I get the error: Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service.
Regular users are unable to log on to the machine but Administrators are. The Event Viewer does not have any useful information. I performed a system restore to a previously working day but the error came back eventually. I have ran the command netsh winsock
reset many times to no avail. When I log in to the machine as Admin I can see that the service is started and it is set to Automatic yet the error persists. This has occurred on 2 Dell machines of different models. I had to completely reinstall the first one
to get the user back working but this is not really a solution.

I have a desktop computer running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1. Yesterday, Vidcoder (a front end for Handbrake) attempted to update to version 2.44, but Norton blocked the update with a security warning (vidcodercommon.dll, threat WS.Reputation.1). Because I found a reference to Vidcoder and AutoComplete Pro, I followed the advice at https://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-autocomplete-pro/ - and ran AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free, and HitmanPro.

Now, my computer boots slowly to an account with Admin privileges, but shows a bubble message, "Failed to connect to a windows service. Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond." The computer has no internet access, and says, "Not connected. No connections are available." A Norton Internet Security scan is clean (but limited because there is no internet access).

Google reveals multiple posts about this problem, with multiple suggested fixes. For fear of making the problem worse, I have not tried any of the fixes, and I have not done a system restore. I would greatly apreciate some help. Thank you.

I am wondering if my system may have gotten a virus.  On boot and attempting to log in I frequently get a message "Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service."  When it does this I get a message that it can't access my profile too.  It then uses the default.
 
I have run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malware Bytes and Spybot.  They don't seem to find anything.  But I am not convinced.  In browsing my event viewer - system I see system services that crash and restart.  So, either my machine has a virus or it is starting to fail. :-(

She attempted to use it, and got the 'User Account Service service failed." error.

I deleted the account, and tried again with a different named account. Same thing.

The only accounts that seem to work are mine (Administrator) and my nephew's (Standard.)

I read a forum posting for this problem that stated the problem was because of account SIDs and the wonky way Vista goes about its business. Now, at one time I did have two accounts. Chance, and Blake. I deleted Blake because I hadn't realized that he would have permanent access to my private files after navigating to them from his account. However, this did not delete the Blake entry in C:\Users. I created another account for him, again called Blake. This created an entry in C:\Users called Blake.Home.

Now, the only entries I have SIDs for in regedit are Chance, Blake.Home, systemprofile, LocalService, and NetworkService.

There are no SIDs left over from previous accounts that could be causing this trouble.

I went to the System Properties Users tab and found three entries. Unknown Account,Chance, and Blake. I deleted Unknown Account (It was a leftover from some problems with creating a new account for my nephew.) Now the user account manager, and the System Properties User Profiles tab list ...

Hello, I've searched the forum and read several threads on this topic "The user profile service service failed the logon". I went in and found the HYKEY stuff, found the SID stuff, but, I have like 6 SID's and only two of them have LONG numbers after them, which NONE have ".bak" or ".bk". Both numbers are the same, the top number has no caractor's at the end, the bottom number say's "CLASSES". Upon reviewing these SID's, there is NO INFORMATION on the RIGHT SIDE of the screen, is this bad? The account that is locked IS NOT the admin account.

My question is, the "fix" for this listed in another thread is the same fix? Even though i'm not seeing the same stuff on the screen? Or do I have another issue all together? I'm not a wiz bag with computer's, but not totally ignorant, I just don't want to be changing HYKEY's and what not, not knowing if I'm doing more damage then good!

Answer:ERROR MESSAGE: "SQL Service Failed"

The SQL Service could be used by any number of applications, it's tough to know where to start without more information. If you could post a screen shot of the exact error message, preferably with at least your task bar also visible in the shot, that might help. A screen shot of the entire program list from "Add or Remove Programs", in the Control Panel would also help pinpoint which program might be using the SQL Service. Also, have you recently installed or uninstalled any software or Windows Updates?

So then I installed windows 7. Same thing. after a few minutes it said windowsexplorer.exe had crashed and all my programs were gone. Restarted to the same login error.

Performed a hard drive diagnostics and everything came back good. Currently running memtest. Anybody run into the same issue or know what may be causing this??

hello,
I have upgraded vista to win 7 home premium, everything was going great, until the network card stopped working, i used talktalk "talk and go" to reset the adaptor then the computer re-set and shut down.
i restarted but it wouldn't get to the log on page before shutting down.
I borrowed a laptop and found a thread to turn back the clock to vista with some command prompts, but this didn't work.
To compound things i then saw open in previous good something and the log on screen appeared - i thought YES, but NO..... typed in my password......"The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loeaded". it appears that i have deleted my account...
i have looked at other threads of this nature and have been directed to a vista tutorial - however it staes that you must be logged on as an administrator - i can't log on!
i've tried opening the command prompt and turing on the in built administrator, but i have to restart to get back to log on page which defeats the command prompt.
i have tried to re-install win7 but comp tells me i have started with disk in restart then insert disk. this does nothing...

i'm really really fed up at the mo i thought that win 7 would be better than this.....

any help to solve this would be great. thanks

I have been getting these "Bad Pool Header" and "System Service Exception" BSODs for about a day now (the "Bad Pool Header" one tends to pop up more often then the other btw). I ran a registry cleaner which didn't work and ran memtest this morning and it showed that my memory was fine. The BSODs tend to occur more often when I am playing a game or running some program that uses a bit more memory but it also happens when I am just on the internet. On the other hand, last night I did nothing but surf YouTube for 3 hours and didn't get a BSOD at all. However, since then I haven't been able to do anything for more than 10 minutes (without being in safe mode) without it crashing, and this morning it completely froze until I turned it off. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. It came preinstalled from the manufacturer and unfortunately I do not have the install disc. The entire laptop is less than 2 years old and there have been no major hardware changes and I have never reinstalled the OS.

I know someone else has asked about this error message, but the incidence here is quite different. I am running a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop on which there has only ever been one account -- mine. One day the computer suddenly crashed  and when I restarted
it, my desktop would not load, none of my programs would run, and I encountered the message listed in the subject line of this post.
I enabled the Administrator Account, tried to manually modify the registry as another thread instructed me to do. That did not work. There was no duplicate account key with a .bak ending. Even after I accessed the hidden Administrator account, I encountered
the same error message. The computer will not let me create any new accounts.
I am not linked in to any servers, nor is my account a part of any larger network. My home does not even have internet, and I was not online when the problem occurred. 
If anyone can help with this problem I would greatly appreciate it. I am totally lost.

Hi there,

I'm having an issue with new users on my vista business machine. My current user account is working fine, however when I create a new account, either through control panel or through "local users and groups" option by right clicking computer. The account creates and is apparently all ready to go, however when I try log in to the account, i get an error: "the windows login service service failed the login, the user profile could not be loaded". I also notice that in C:\users folder, there is no folder with the new account I created, i assume that is why the error is appearing. I have done numerious virus scans, with norton, so thats not the issue. I have found other problems on the internet but they only appear to be having problems with the main account, my main administrator account works fine.

Thanks heaps!

Hi.
After uninstalling a trial version of "Acrobat" pre-loaded on my laptop I receive a message "Windows could not connect to the system event notification service".
System event log entry is the same as thread Vista Event ID: 10 WMI ; which is a closed thread without "detailed" steps to resolve problem, merely stating "Deleted contents of Repostory & rebooted".
Can anyone please help further.
Many thanks.

Answer:System Event Notification Service

I'm unsure if this is the correct thing to do - but here's how to clear the repository (originally found at this link: Repairing and re-registering the WMI ):

Open an elevated (run as Administrator) Command Prompt and type
"net stop winmgmt" (without quotes) and press Enter.
Leave this window open as you'll reuse it again later.

Open Windows Explorer, navigate to %windir%\System32\Wbem\Repository (%windir% is usually C:\Windows ). Rename the Repository folder to Repository_OLD
Then close Windows Explorer

Go back to the elevated Command Prompt and type:
"net start winmgmt" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Then type "exit" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Then close the elevated Command Prompt window and see if that fixed things.

About a week and a half ago i turned on my computer to be greeted by "windows 98" style graphics and an error message saying "Cannot connect to a windows service" It also said the service it could not connect to is the "System event notification service". Since i've been getting this error my computer has been slow to turn on and off, and non admins cannot log in. I suspect it may be a virus as i have tried to enable the service myself, reset the winsock from command prompt and i even saw if it was a third party application that was interfering with it but alas nothing seems to help (Even a system restore had no effect). So far i've run Spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes anti malware, avg 2012, and eset. These programs have found little things such as tracking cookies but nothing major. Could anyone help me solve this issue? Thanks in advance :)

Answer:"Cannot connect to a windows service error"

It was probably referring to the Desktop Windows Manager service if you didn't get the aero styles that you're used to seeing.

Try starting up the service again:
1) Goto start menu, and type in services.msc
2) Hit enter
3) In here find Desktop Windows Manager and start/restart the service.

Otherwise try System File Checker in case dwm.exe was corrupted in anyway.

Enter this command in command prompt console:

Code:
sfc /scannow
Let it finish, and reboot if necessary.

You may also type msconfig on the Start Menu. Go to Startup and check if any malicious programs are checked in there that might be causing this sound..

Answer:Event Viewer Error The Open Procedure for service "ESENT" in DLL

I figured this out, nothing was wrong with Windows 10, running sfc /scannow returned no errors.

I ended up removing MSI Gaming App because they have yet to correct whatever is wrong, this got rid of that event for me.

I opened CCleaner and under Startup I figured some program must be causing these errors since I'd been clearing the event logs using Clear_Event_Viewer_Logs and they only occurred at startup. I discovered MSI Gaming App didn't remove it's startup entry neither did CoreTemp remove its scheduled startup (I took it off because I'm using Secure Boot and it isn't yet licensed to work with it.)

After deleting those I have no more errors. None. Really annoying!

since about 3 months ago, my computer has been experiencing multiple BSOD's per day. upon looking in the event viewer, ever single time and event with something to do with a "VSS service" is the last thing before the crash. i find this strange, as looking into this, vss is a backup program for xp and server 2000. i have no idea why this is on my system, what it does, or why i need it. after trying to use some debugging tools, it seems that i cannot access the .dmp files on my own computer, logged in as an administrator, with full privileges, with all file security options in my anti-virus off. my system is a x32 vista business. the crahses occur almost at random, doing anything from playing a game, using Firefox, typing a notepad file, or just leaving the thing on and not doing anything for more than 10 minutes. the system will still crash at the log in screen, leaving me to believe that this is not an overheating issue. i have tried to disable all programs with mscofig, but i still get a crash. i have even had crashes in sleep mode, as well as in the process of a normal shutdown. i have no new updates in windows update, and have installed all of the new drivers for every device i can find them for. any and all help would greatly be appreciated.

Hi - Having lots of trouble here and very frustrated. On login, I get the message "Failed to Connect to a Windows Service. Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from signing in. As an Administrative user you can review " (I am not sure what other parts of the message I am missing).

So, there are other thread out there for this problem, but I can hardly do anything on my desktop right now. Very Ironic to me that about the only that seems to work okay is Microsoft Edge so I could get here. Other threads have talked about running some things from the command line (as admin) or going into regedit. I have tried these things. But I get stopped. Ususally 5 minutes or so later I will get some kind of message stating it could not run the program in an appropriate amount of time. I tried to go into event viewer and got the same thing.

I don't even know what is going on. For some reason I believe that the root cause of this was me being dumb enough to accept when windows 10 wanted me to run with my Hotmail account as the administrator of the pc (so I sign in with my Hotmail credentials).

I don't even know a next step because almost everything I try gets blocked. I try to switch to run as a local user and that bombs out every time. I tell you, I loved windows 7. I now lividly hate windows 10. I skipped everything in between and then bought a new pc thinking it would be okay with 10. Boy was I wrong.

During a long period, I'm  doing a huge jobs to take back ownership for files, as attributes (write protected) atrib. My database for network policy setting, secedit.sdb have problem, corrupted(?). So to check my database, I went to CMD as
administrator. From CMD I run:
esentutl /g %windir%\security\database\secedit.sdb

Result:
C:\Windows\system32>esentutl /g %windir%\security\database\secedit.sdb

Hello all, I'm not sure if this is an operating system question or more of a software development question.

Anyway, I have a legacy COM service, a COM server that runs as a windows service, that was written for Windows NT 4.0. I have managed to use the service on both Windows 2000 and Windows XP unchanged. However, I now wish to run the service on a Windows Server 2003 machine and I can't seem to get it to work.

This is what happens:-
1. Install the service and set it to log on using a domain account.
2. Start the service from the services.msc applet.
3. Start the client application and connect to the service.
4. At this stagte the client applicaiton freezes for approximately 60 seconds and then returns with the error message "Server execution failed".

I've also tried using the client whilst the service is stopped. In this case when I connect the service is started but I get the same error.

The development team also provided a standalone application that hosts the exact same COM objects, mainly for debugging purposes. If I use the standalone application everything works fine.

Its all very strange.

Does anyone have any idea what the cause might be? And preferably a solution.

Thanks,
Kep.
 

Answer:DCOM service on Windows Server 2003 - "Server execution failed" when connecting

I found the answer.

The above discussion says that a service must enter a running state before a COM server calls CoRergisterClassObject. So I guess its a development problem.

Not sure why it only manifests on Windows Server 2003 though.
