Failed to connect to a windows service Windows could not connect to the System Event

#1
I am getting this message each time I start the computer

Failed to connect to a windows service
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

I am running W7 home basic.

The computer is also very slow to start and shut down.

Hello Chris,

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc.

Scroll down until you find System Event Notification Service and make sure it is running and set it to Automatic.

this is for Vista, but it's worth a try

Create a Restore Point first

Sometimes Windows Vista does “specialâ€Â￾ things that sometimes made me say “This beats me!â€Â￾ a few times. Thankfully, there are many people out there that face the same problem as mine and already posted a solution online. One of the most recent problem that I’ve experienced is that I could not connect to the Internet after I got the error message

“Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. Please consult your system administrator. â€Â￾
The best part is that I logged on to my machine with an administrator account! Lol! After searching the net for solutions (plus a few times cursing Microsoft), I’ve found one that works!



How to Fix “Could Not Connect to the System Event Notification Serviceâ€Â￾ Error
1- Log on to your Windows system. Just ignore the error message for the time being.
2- Go to Windows Start button -> All Programs -> Accessories
3- Right click on Windows Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator. Wait for the Command Prompt to launch.

4- Using the command prompt, navigate to the C:\Windows\System32\ folder.
5- Type “netshâ€Â￾ and press Enter. The prompt will change to netsh>
6- Type “Winsock reset“. Press Enter once more.

Hi reghakr, have done the winsock reset, still the same problem.
Could it be Kaspirsky causing the problem.

Cheers Chris

I am going to try a restore point, going back a few days.
I still got the message but at least I could re boot and it would sort the problem.

Hi again, did a restore point, I have now some colour and sound again, even though I got the same message

Untill I re booted. Now no message.
What I have done is lost my Seagate Manager, for my FreeAgent/Desk.

Will see how long it keeps going now.

Cheers Chris

We're getting somewhere:)

View the System event log and look for red flags and post back with the EventID.
 


#13
Am I looking in Event viewer (Local)\ Windows Logs \ System

Chris
 


#14

The Id's are:
10016
7016
7001

I've been looking up these EventID's and they are too complicated for me to decipher.

Do you have any Programming programs on your computer?

Are you running IIS?
 


#16
No programming programmes
Wht is IIS

Chris
 


#17
Do you mean note pad ?

At this point I would have to say a "clean" install should be performed.

Be aware, you'l need to re-install all youtr 3rd party apps.
 


#19
Clean install

Hi reghakr
That was what I was thinking, but didn't realy want to go down that route yet.
:confused:

Thanks for the help
