ATAcenter and ATAConsole cert expired > unable to start any services

Q: ATAcenter and ATAConsole cert expired > unable to start any services


We've installed ATA in our demo environemnt more than a year ago.
When I verified the config, I noticed that the ATAcenter and ATACOnsole certificate are expired.

Because of this, none of the ATA services can start, and I'm not able to renew the certs from the ATA console.

Is there a way to manually update the certificate, without the need to use the console?

Preferred Solution: ATAcenter and ATAConsole cert expired > unable to start any services

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.)


Hello All,

I just found out the the self signed cert I was using on the center machine has expired. I figured no big deal I will change out the cert and everything will be fine. I tried to go to the web page to login to ATA and found not page available. I notice the
service was not running on the center machine. I tried to start the service and the service will not start. I found the following error in the error logs:

Hi Techguys!

I recently installed Windows 7 64 bit on a brand new build. (Asus X79 PRO Intel i7 3930k 16 GB Corsair Vengeance Low Profile Quad Samsung 830 SSD)

After installing all the software I need (Windows Updates, Avast, Music Production, iTunes, Flash etc...)
The system performed as aspected.

Then, a few things went wrong :
- after opening Internet Explorer 64 bits a sudden BSOD (can't remember the errors)
- I had to do a system restore
- I really like this system to be stable and wanted it to be as clean as possible, so I uninstalled Asus Suite (didn't use it to overclock)
- Several boot sequences were succesful
- One time I didn't have internet connection
- Next time Avast starts asking me for a license registration, which I am not fond of.. Couldnt really get it licensed
- Got another BSOD during Idle
- Next boot the windows firewall was unable to start
- Other windows applications wouldn't start
- Started looking in the Event Viewer and noticed a few returning errors:
- BFE Acces denied
- Microsoft Security Client OOBE Acces denied
- Firewall Acces Denied via BFE
- Diagnostic Policy Service Acces Denied
- ICS Acces Denied
- WMI :

A:unable to start bluetooth services

Hello Dats and Welcome to TSF,

It might be that the Bluetooth unit is inproperly installed or that the drivers can not be called for. Lets uninstall the unit and reinstall it again.

Go to Start > Search.
Type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotes > Hit ENTER.
Find and mark the bluetooth unit > Rightclick > Uninstall > Confirm uninstall.

When that is done, go to the top of the device management, where your computername is listed(I.E "NAME-PC"). Rightclick that name > Scan for hardware changes. Windows will then reinstall the bluetooth device with the previous driver.

(You could also just uninstall the unit from the device manager > Reboot the system. Windows would then reinstall the device upton startup)

A little background first, I downloaded a file and started to install it when Defender caught the virus, but didn't contain it. So I downloaded Malwarebytes to scan and remove the virus.

After I loaded Malwarebytes I noticed I wasn't getting anymore Windows Defender definitions but I noticed the Windows Defender services were stopped and I figured Malwarebytes stopped it and that was the reason I wasn't getting anymore updates on Defender.

I uninstalled Malwarebytes but now I can't restart Windows Defender.

If I got to Control Panel then Security and Maintenance window. Both buttons to turn on Defender are grayed out.

If I search for Windows Defender in the search window on the task bar. This is the result I get.

And lastly, if I go into Task Manager Services, there are 2 entries for Windows Defender, both are stopped. If I try to restart them this is the message I get.

So is there anything I can do to restart the app or does it require more drastic steps such as reload 9926?

A:Unable to Re-Start Windows Defender Services

Head over to Services and make sure windows defender service is on. Not sure if the virus could have altered any settings in there, but worth a look.

I recently cleaned most of a fairly large infection involving Vundo, XP AntiVirus, and a couple others. Most of them attempted to download other viruses, so it multiplied quickly. So I don't know which one caused it exactly, but it shut down the ability to start services for AV programs I tried to reinstall (Windows Defender and PCTools Spyware).

The HiJackThis log probably won't show much. The only remaining threat seems to be the Fvijaa.exe process. All other services start normally, including those that make RPC calls. PCTools will fail to run/install in standard mode (though Safe Mode works). Defender will fail to install, giving a 1053 error (fails to start the service). Any idea how to restore the services without a reinstall? I'm guessing it has to do with the dll linked to the services being tampered with.

I've been having this problem since I installed this Heliobar program (A taskbar tool btw) and rebooted my box. I'm not really sure why this is happening...
I'd recently installed/removed a couple of other small programs too, but this one seems the most suspicious anyway.

I see a red x mark on my soundmax control icon on my system tray and I'm unable to use sound. and my firewall Zonealarm is not automatically executed at startup.
i can't connect to my wireless network. when I doubleclick on the network icon it says 'wireless zero configuration service is not started'. I tried to manually start it in control panel, but it says something like: 'failed : error 1068 - subordinate service or group can't be started.'

If I let my computer on for some time, a popup window comes up it says some system file is replaced by an unknown version, asks me to insert Windows setup cd. I did so but to no use. System restore doesn't work, either.

So, what seems to be the problem here?

fortunately I had made a list of all files on my hard drive in a txt file some month ago
so is there no other way than comparing date&size of all driver files with the current ones?

I'd greatly appreciate it if someone powerful enough could look inside this Heliobar setup archive and tell what files it installs... but maybe this is asking too much.

When attempting to start Windows defender or Microsoft security services, getting error 5 access denied.  I think this was caused by some malware which has been removed from my pc, but can't get either of these working again.  I have run RKill and MBAM also run McAfee virus scan.

Hello sevenforums

After having absolutely no issues when I shut the computer down, to the computer acting strange and having several issues at the next startup. The issues are mainly related to the network, but not limited to it, so I decided to post it here, but unsure if it is the correct forum.

Note: I'm translating all messages from Danish to English, so they might not be completely accurate.

Issues are currently that I am not able to connect to the internet with the message: "service or group dependency failed to start". I'm unable to turn on the firewall with the following error: "Error 0x8007042c". Several services are't starting and I am unable to start them, I get "Error 5: Access denied", I was able to fix this on the diagnostic politic service, by editing permission in the registry editor at two folders called WMI and DPS. I'm currently scanning the computer with MSE, but I somewhat feel this is going to be a waste of time, but it is currently my last resort, except repair with Win7 CD or formatting of course. In my my task manager there is currently nothing taking CPU power at all, yet CPU use is at 30-50%, I'm guessing MSE is using CPU power, but why is it not listed?

So far I have tried the following:
sfc /scannow (Found no issues)
netsh reset
Changing permission in registry to get diagnostic tools working (Which then found no issues or where unable to fix it)

Any ideas or suggestions?

A:Services disabled and unable to start, no internet, no firewall, etc.

Do you have a Restore Point from before the issue? It sounds like it can't hurt to run it if so. Also I would try a full scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware if the Restore Point doesn't eliminate the problem.

Edit: MBAM free version is just fine for scanning.

Hi All, Over the past few weeks I have been fighting with my computer to regain connectivity to the internet. Every time I boot the computer, my network connections disappear. I believe I have isolated the problem to the 'Network Connections' service (Netman) not starting properly. My theory is that when I removed a bunch of malware from the computer that some of the system files were corrupted as well. I am completely stuck on trying to figure this out and really want to try avoiding formatting the hard drive if at all possible. So far I have attempted the following: Running SFCRunning CHKDSKRemoving the hardware and letting Windows automatically detect it and reinstall.Attached are some screen shots of the errors I am getting. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

She was suddenly unable to connect to the internet. I have looked at here machine and it seems to be a winsock problem (tried the netsh winsock reset without success).

Before I decided to turn myself towards a helping hand, I had to tackle with the infestation myself and namely had to dapple with/into services.msc and msconfig to disable some programs that would load at startup. This in order to try to prevent further spread of the infestation.

Though the infestation is gone my PC running under Windows XP Professional SP2 still has some malfunctions

Hi all.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional x64 as a Parallels virtual machine on my Mac (part of my requirements to work for replacing my Windows-based laptop with a Mac). As such, I still run quite a few Windows applications because either 1) there is no Mac equivalent, or 2) the Mac equivalent sucks.

Today there was a message on my Windows VM stating:

"Your password has expired and must be changed"

I click OK, the standard password change screen comes up asking for my current password, and the new password twice.

I fill this out, it says "Changing password..." for 5 seconds or so, then comes up with an error stating:

"Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied."

The problem is, this (virtual) machine is not a member of a domain. I personally installed the OS from DVD in the virtual machine, and at no time was it joined to the domain (I don't even have permission to do so).

My only choice on this screen is to click OK again, which takes me back to the change password prompt again.

In another thread on the forum, there was another person with a similar issue and they resolved it by booting into Safe Mode and changing their password. Unfortunately this did not work for me ... rebooting into safe mode with networking support generates the same error, and normal safe mode states this:

"An attempt was made to logon, but the network logo... Read more

A:Password expired and unable to change it

FYI, I was able to resolve this by trying a bunch of different things. The working solution was using the ntpasswd utility posted in Need to bypass 'Your password has expired' using recovery CLI prompt

have. The certificate with the relevant thumbprint expired over 12 months ago (15 months to the day).
The expired certificate with the correct thumbprint shows as having a private key but will not allow me to export with private key.

I have a semi-wireless (apparently) connection with a receiver on my terrace from which a cable is sourced to my Laptop.
My ISP authenticates users through a "web dialer" wherein once connection to their Login web page is established, I can login using my credentials and then continue to access the internet..

Now for the past two weeks I've been unable to access even this login page; I assumed it was a problem with my ISP and harangued with them as long as I could, till I found that my neighbor (who also has his receiver on the terrace) had minimal problems in connecting via the same ISP.

Now coming to the Browser specific issues, Today I was just playing around with the 'Security' and 'Content' options of IE7 and I reset all settings to default values.. Soon after, I was able to connect to the login page successfully, albeit with a security certificate error and after ignoring the warning I'm able to connect to the Login page.

In specific , whenever I try to reach my Login page now (through which my ISP provides internet access), I get the following error:

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

I have had to restart my computer 10 times from fresh in the past two weeks, last week I had to use the two disk to start it again, I also just had to go into user accounts and create a new account because windows would only open in temporary run, and I would loose it all when i turned it off, just did the new account a little while ago, have not turned it off since, I google "cannot find local profile" and was given the directions to create a new account.

64 bit emachines desktop PC running Home Premium, direct wire connection to a modem.

It boots normally, it just doesn't connect to the internet. Many of the services are disabled.

I have done a startup repair with and without a disk (the CD we have is NOT from emachines - it's a standard Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit disk. The repairs never find a problem. I have done an sfc /scannow. No intefgrity violations were detected.

When I run services.msc I see that DHCP Client is not running. When I attempt to start it, I get that it could not start because the dependency service or group failed to start. If I go to properties and click on Dependencies I get a Win32 error - the service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

I get the exact behavior when I try to start DNS Client.

There are no restore points available. There are no viruses or malware according to TDSSKiller, Malwarebytes and ComboFix. When I try to use Internet Explorer I get the 'page cannot be displayed' . When I then click on 'Diagnose Connection Problems', I get 'Troubleshooting Couldn't Identify the Problem.'

There's about 50GB worht of music and videos on this PC and the idea of saving all that externally, plus the drivers, reinstalling and putting everything back is a lot of time and work.

My brand new Dell laptop keeps losing its active window focus. I have tried to pinpoint the problem to a service or startup and did not find anything specific.
I am now checking the System logs and I see things like :
The Windows Modules Installer Service changes every couple of seconds its start mode from demand to auto and from auto to demand. There are almost 20 changes from one state to the other in 2 minutes.
The Computer browser service starts/stops several times in a few minutes.
The Multimedia Class Scheduler service starts/stops every 3 or 4 minutes.
Is this normal ? How do I troubleshoot this ?

So I went there after some suggestions by some members on here, and tried to turn a few programs automatic(not the delayed start) but when I tried to start some of them, I got this message:

Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start

So is there a way to fix this?

A:Error 1068 failed to start when trying to start services

Yes, possibly possible! What are the names of the services you are dealing with?

Double click the service - go to the "Dependencies" tab - Check the service names list under "This service depends on the following system components" and then make sure that all the services listed there are already started.

For example, if you're trying to start a service which has dependency on "Windows firewall" service, you need to first make sure Windows firewall service is STARTED.

This has been bleeping bugging me for a while now. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to configure msconfig to start to Normal Startup. This is what happens: If I select "Normal Startup", "/safeboot" and "minimal" are automatically selected. If I deselect "/safeboot", then "Selected Startup" is automatically selected. Furthermore, some of my services -- primarily my printer -- do not start and when try to start it manually, nothing happens. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Shouldn't I be able to modify a service via Computer Management? The Description and "Path to Executable" fields seem to be protected. This is my own personal PC, so I should have privs to do any damn thing I want. I can start and stop services and change the Startup type, but if I want to add a command line switch, I have to edit the registry since I am not allowed to modify these fields.

I VAGUELY remember some problem like this a couple of years ago, and it had something to do with file protections or security or ACL's or some weird and obscure thing. Or maybe I'm just having a blond moment and it's something obvious that I'm just not seeing.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

BTW, I am running WinXP Pro.


A:Unable to modify services


Tip! Notice that Microsoft provides no way to edit any of the previous fields. The reasons are as follows: the Service and Display names are hard coded within the executable of the service executable itself. So, only the program developer is capable of changing these strings by compiling a new executable (EXE).

There is no method provided by Microsoft to remove or install services. Similarly there is no way to change the path of a service (field is shown as read-only). The justification of this decision is that the application should provide its own method of installation and removal. Many third party service management applications provide for the mass installation and removal of services as well as ways of modifying the name and path to the service executable.


Is this really true? I could SWEAR I've been able to modify those fields before. Just my imagination? So how ARE they changed? Regedit?

I had a problem after installing sp2 so I deleted it. This did not solve problem and ended up re-installing under the R configuration now it will not do such things as drag and drop, send to, download, open short cuts or run some programs, and so on. I have tried the re-install 3 times and each time I get error code 0x80040206 com+ event classes could not be registered plus a problem installing HP printer 840c. When I run adm. services a number of services required that are on automatic are not started and I am unable to manually start them. If I try to install any thing I get a message stating install cannot proceed because I am either in safe mode (which I am not) or windows installer service is not available and I should check with tec. support. I re-activated with MS the first time I ran R configuration but now I get a message saying I have 25 days to register. Please advise if there is a solution that does not involve a clean install as I have data on this drive I need but current problems do not allow me to save this data.

I am not able to host anything what so ever on my computer. At first I thought it a router problem (since the flash upgrade appeared to fry my D-Link) so I got a LinkSys. Well that did not work so I went straight to the source and plugged the Cisco 678 into the NIC. Well, turns out was never a hug/switch/router problem. I am totally invisible to everything, and realize it is either a)something in the Cisco 678 or b)something in WinXP that needs to be configged. I attempted everything under the sun. I was thinking that since when connected direct to the 678 I have an "IP" address of for the modem, and for my computer, that maybe the modem has to use port forwarding? I am not sure, and the really bad thing is that I have misplaced my management cable. I was hoping there was something I could do without it, if that is even my problem in the first place.

I mainly want to host things, such as games and emulators and the like, however, I am totally invisible to the outside world. I must be one of the few humans who cannot be touched by the outside world who desperately wants to. Any help would be very appriciated. I would even be so kind to praise and thank you to all my millions of on-line friends Thanks for your time...
