NT netlogon errors

Q: NT netlogon errors

This is a tough one...NT 4.0 network with w9* clients. Receiving error 1015...unable to update configuration from \\server\netlogon\config.pol the registry is corrupt... OR error 1016...an I\O operation initiated by the registry failed unrecoverably.... I believe the config.pol file may be corrupt and has corrupted the registries of the clients. anyone know where to edit the registry on win9* machines? i DO NOT want to re-install windows on all the clients. any ideas at all would help, i've been trying to figure this one out for a week and it's getting worse. would overwriting the config.pol file on the NT box help? I'm pulling my hair out here.

Preferred Solution: NT netlogon errors

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.)

A: NT netlogon errors

Delete the config.pol from the server, create a new one if desired, Save the file as Config.pol in the Netlogon folder of either the primary domain controller or the backup domain controller. The Netlogon folder is located in the following folder:


Then try to log in again in some workstations and let's see if this will fix it.

I you don't want to delete, then rename it to config.old. login in one workstation and see what happend.

Good luck

I am running a Windows XP machine in a Windows 2000 network. Everytime the Windows XP machine reboots it gets these errors:

Netlogon 5719 & w32time 14

I have been researching these errors for a while and I am lost. The computer has full functionality, except when logged onto the database on a remote computer for long periods of time, and does not give errors when logging on.

However if you go into the event viewer after booting up there is 1 Netlogon event and 3 w32time events.

I have tried updating the NIC driver, replacing the NIC, switching ports on the switch, extending the netlogon timeout time, and disabling the spanning tree algorithm on the port.

I need to fix this issue before we have a bigger issue. If anyone has any suggestions please tell me.

Thank you.

is there a description that goes with each error?

It may be that there is no domain controller for the domain...

hi with netlogon how do i make it open a program so when i login it automatically opens a program?


You don't netlogon is only a service.... It does not have this capability.

What you want to do is put the program into the startup group. It will then start on each reboot.

If the machines are unable to get an IP address from the DHCP server, the netlogon service will not start. Check the TCP/IP properties on the client machines and make sure they are setup for DHCP. Also, try doing ipconfig /release & renew.

Hi Guys,

Is there any way of changing the permissions so that it will still work ok but they can't do anything to it. Just out of interest what should the netlogon folder permissions be anyway incase i've just set it up wrongly.

Any help will be gratefully received,

You could do a system restore, or if you are comfortable editing the registry import them from the registry of another PC running XP and restart windows (probably easier).

A thread from last year (5/2001) that the best fix is to reinstall the OS and install SP6. My problem is that SP6 is already installed on the server. I am concerned that the reinstall/fix will delete software (obviously a great concern) and it is specialized surveillance software that I am unfamiliar with. The server doesn't act as a file server but rather as the security utility operator.

Please help.

Thank you.

A:Netlogon Service NOT running BUT has SP6

Reinstalling the Service Pack will not damage any files, just replace any damaged ones that the service pack has.

Reinstalling the OS will kill all your settings and reset the registry, so you would have to reinstall all the programs again.
Can you start it manually?

Is there an event in the event viewer that might give you a little more to go on?

A:Netlogon service not running

I had exactly the same problem with a Windows NT 4.0 workstation. The solution that Microsoft gives is to install Service Pack 6 but you can't do that if you can't log in, can you?
What I had to resort to doing is reinstalling Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, leaving the data intact but that can cause more problems then it is worth as programs lose registry keys and may stop working.
If you have a backup of your data on the Server, the best is to reinstall Windows NT Server and wipe all data while reinstalling.
The Netlogon service will work once reinstalled.
Unfortunately, I found no way to bypass the logon.
If you find out another solution, I would love to know.

I recently encountered a problem on the networking of Win 7 professional. My laptop is installed with Windows 7, 64bit, with Service Pack 1.

I have shared some local folders via my home WLAN so I can access the files while using my other devices in living room, bedroom, and etc. It's been going quite well, until one night last week. I couldn't access my local files thru WLAN. It kept saying that
User login information is not correct but I've double checked that user name and password are both correct. Besides, the sharing settings of my local folders are all the sam as they were.

Based on my poor IT knowledge, I checked services running on my laptop and found Netlogon service shows "Manual" and stopped. I tried to change it back to "Automatic" and then started it. Then a dialogue box poped up saying: "The
netlogon service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do". And the service stopped.

And after I restarted my laptop, I found the Netlogon service was again switched back to "Manual". And I repeated the previous steps but it kept showing that message. I restarted the computer several times and it's still the same.
I didn't install any softwares last week before the problem occurred, except the Windows update KB4480907 and KB2808679. And the laptop have been running very normally since last December, with no blue screen or forced shut-down.

Hello to all of you.

I wish to know the importance of the following windows system files.

1. secli.dll
2. netlogn.dll
3. eventlog.dll

I have seen many a times while the forum guys are helping people in removing the virus/malware etc they are interested in the location of above files. Are they very crucial to the system?

For providing the above information, I am thankful to all of you.

With kind regards.

A:secli.dll netlogon.dll eventlog.dll

Presumably you meant: SCECLI.dll, not secli.dll.

Googling all three files, seems to indicate that they are all legitimate Windows files.

Check the properties of each file in Windows\System32 for confirmation.

I don't generally delete files which have presumably been installed by the OS.

This is what appears in my Windows\System32:

All 3 files dated 14.4.2008

(modified the 29.8.2002 files, on installation of SP3)

1. scecli.dll

Windows Security Configuration Editor Client Engine


2. netlogn.dll

Net Logon Services DLL


3. eventlog.dll

Hi there,

Heres my problem:

I have an Microsoft NT Back Office 4.5 that belongs to a client of mine. I got a phone call that that users are unable to connect to the server.

I arrive at the scene, and try log into the server localy with the Administrator username and password. It tries to authenticate, but then I get the error message that NETLOGON services are not running on this machine. So therefore there is no way for me to logon to the machine.

I bounce (reboot) the machine, still no joy.

What do I do now? I cant logon to the machine to do anything... so I really dont know what to do. There seems to be no other way into the machine. Could I possibly take the hard drive out the box, slave it in another machine and try edit the registory that way? Is that possible? If so, where/how would I do this?

Any other ideas?

Your help on this would be greatly appretiated.

Hello, I am currently testing the 280 G2 desktop for a desktop refresh, but I have come across a problem. The 280 G2 has an OEM SANDISK 256GB Z400 SSD. I'm using MDT to deploy Win7 x64 to the device which all works correctly. After each reboot, I see the Netlogon 5719 (no logon servers available) Event. This causes no problems during the build. However, when the computer is booted and I immediately logon on receiving the CTRL+ALT+DEL prompt, I get the cached copy of the user profile and the Intranet web page (configured in startup) fails to load. The 5719 event and the above problem are caused by the NIC not being initialised yet. I've tested this with a HDD (normal spinning disk drive) and do not get this error. So I have concluded that the faster speed of the SSD is causing some kind of race condition which loads the OS, but then has to wait for the physical NIC (integrated Realtek GBE 8111G) to be made ready. I have got around this by configuring GPO to wait for the network on logon and loading the users profile - it works but its not a great solution IMHO. Has anyone had the same problem?, is there anything that can be done to make the NIC respond faster? Thanks and regards,YYo

Hi. A week ago, my computer got hijacked with the about:blank. I used several spyware removers, and was able to remove and reset my IE. The problem I now face is that whenever I restart my computer, a new hardware detected "Workstation NetLogon Service", and it's wanting to install on my computer.

I have read all I can about Workstation NetLogon Service. I do not have it installed on my computer, so I can't disable or stop it under Services Management. I believe it's connected to the about:blank hijack, because before then I didn't have this hardware detection. I can't delete the hardware because it's not actually installed.. I don't know what to do.

A:About:Blank & Workstation NetLogon Service

As you have read the Net logon service "Supports pass-through authentication of account logon events for computers in a domain."
This is usually installed by default on a Windows XP computer but
is set to manual start. If it were installed you could go to Start, Run, type
cmd and then type net stop netlogon and it would stop the service.

It maybe this virus and may have added the entry in the Registry.

I would recommend making sure that Windows is up to date and running
the Trend Micro online virus scan if you have broadband.

I am just trying to hammer out the issues I find in event viewer. Here is one of them:

Event ID: 3095
This computer is configured as a member of a workgroup, not as a member of a domain. The Netlogon service does not need to run in this configuration.

I am, indeed, a part of a workgroup and NOT a domain. What could the Netlogon service do for me as apart of a workgroup as opposed to a domain?
This took place while I was sitting in front of the computer but I have no idea what would cause this error. Any ideas?

A:Event Viewer - Netlogon service error

It may be configured to start automatically in Services, and can't start and complains. If it is not running and you have no problems, then just keep it from trying to start in the first place.

Go to Start, Run, services.msc and scroll down to the Net Logon service, right click, Properties, set Startup type to manual or disabled, OK.

I am unable to access shared files on a Win 2000 Pro machine from a Win 98 machine. The Microsoft Support site deals with the problem but I get an error message when I attempt the fix to start NetLogon. "Windows could not start the Net Logon on Local Computer .... refer to service specific error code 3095."

Q? Is Net Logon not on W2K Pro?

BACKGROUND (pasted from Microsoft Support site.)

This article was previously published under Q262916

When you attempt to connect to a Microsoft Windows 2000 computer over the network, you may receive one of the following error messages:

You must supply a password to make this connection:
Resource: \\computername\IPC$

This behavior can occur if the Netlogon service is not started on the Windows 2000 computer.

To connect to the network share, follow these steps:
1. In Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then click Component Services.
2. Right-click the Netlogon icon, and then click Start.

This issue affects only Windows 9x computers. Computers running Windows NT and/or Windows 2000 are able to connect when the Netlogon service is turned off.

With this latest vulnerability, i need some clarification about what exactly is a "Non-Compliant Device".
In the KB articles definition, A non-compliant device is one that uses a vulnerable Netlogon secure channel connection.
So that means, lets say you have a Windows machine, that has not been patched correctly, and still uses vulnerable netlogon connection.
So once the DC is patched for this vulnerability, what will happen to this Windows machine?
Will it get denied connection and be reported in event ID: 5827/5828?
Or will it be allowed connection, as it is technically a non-compliant device based on the definition, as it is using vulnerable netlogon connection? And be logged under event ID: 5829?

The other question i have is for the use of the GPO policy: "Domain controller: Allow vulnerable Netlogon secure channel connections"
So i understand that this will bypass the enforcement.
However, if the "Non-Compliant" device is not a windows device, i will assume that the GPO will not work for these devices. So when in enforcement phase, for these such non windows devices that is still using vulnerable netlogon connection, there
is no workaround right? Either get vendor to provide a fix or decommission?

Thanks DM.

Good afternoon,

I have visited microsoft's forum and searched out the error and have corrected the registry for netlogon service to run on DNS and on TermService. Both were not helpful.

A:Boot errors,shutdown errors, wake errors.

Those numbers are in milliseconds, so all of them added up isn't going to amount to anything. Your trace didn't merge (you have a kmode and a umode .etl file), so I'm merging this manually (meaning I may be missing some portion of the data - I would hope not, but it is possible). There are a couple of things here (the nvidia driver is causing network stack delays during boot, disk fragmentation is apparent, especially in the MFT, Windows Defender is enabled and scanning, heavily, during boot, etc), but I did find something interesting. the xmarks IE add-in seems to cause about a 10 second driver request at about the same time csc is loading, which also occurs at around the same time that an svchost is doing a scan of the registry (and a lot of random writes during read). I also notice that the system spends a lot of time on D:, but the disk information says the partition is C: on a Fujitsu MHW2160BH - that seems a bit odd, so I'm wondering which is which.

Ultimately, however, I am not sure it's anything you've done, per se, but it's a convergence of things here that are conspiring to slow your system. It might make sense to do a few things:
Stop/Disable Windows Defender, and replace it with an actual antivirus/antimalware product like Avast, MSE, etc.
Disable/remove xmarks temporarily - it's not doing you any favors
Run a manual disk defragmentation pass, and then defragment free space as well with defrag.exe (see /? for options)
Make sure your nvidia drivers are up to ... Read more

Hi peoples!

As my subject line suggests, I'm having more than a couple of computer difficulties. When I start the computer, I get a screen freeze and have to press Ctrl,Alt,Del once before any programs will startup.
A lot of probs with internet connection and slowness while surfing as well as a lot of pop up ads in my face.
There are system boxes coming up with registry and dll errors and the whole system seems SLOW.

I use spybot regularly, but it doesn't seem to pick up everything??!
One error that comes up often is -
0x00404f94 Windows/System32/exploer.exe Application Error

So I pretty much have the works going on here!

If anyone is brave enough to give me a pointer or two then I would welcome any suggestions....

Sorry but I don't see any antivirus software running there and you have a lot of virus/trojan type processes running.

You need to do an on-line scan to remove the problems and also think about installing one (AVG is good, and its free). Then post a log back once that is cleaned up.

Issues I refer to include these to show how bad it is:

I am new, so I may have not posted this in the correct category and I may not be as specific/descriptive as I should, but here goes:

From first recieving my lenovo t61 , after logging in an error pops up:
"Error in C:\Windows\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\LXCFtime.dll
Missing Entry: Run DLLEntry"

Also, upon attempting to run System Restore, it rebooted and told me it did not complete succesfully:
"An unspecified error occured during system restore."
When I went into info it had no info regarding that error and the help site online didn't help much either. I tried different restore points, I tried the recommended restore point, and I tried creating a new restore point, but it still gives the same "unspecified error" message.

I had installed a Lenovo printer, driver and took my PC in for service (due to the error msg). The guy installed cjr730EN.exe to fix the problem, which went away for awhile, but has reappeared approx. 2 months later.

The guy didn't seem to concerned that restore didn't work, but I am. Any suggestions as to the problem....

So one day my computer froze and i had to manually push the button to turn it off. Ever since then i've been having this rundll.exe error when i log in. But recently the computer froze again and i had to manually restart it and its been getting more errors. Like now i have these svchost.exe errors that pop up on the log in screen and i have to hit ok to terminate the program or cancel to "debug" the program, and no matter what i push i have like 5 of these errors to go through and then when i log in, the computer is like inaccessible. There is no sound anymore (just the beeps that come on with the error message, but they dont come through the speakers), the blue toolbars and appearance of xp has reverted to the old windows 98 silver look, and the internet doesn't work. I know my connection is fine because im using the wireless connection perfectly. I've done repair installs on windows, and sometimes it works and my computer works fine with the exception of all the errors i have to go through, but recently the repair installs just freeze at the please wait screen before you log in for the first time. So basically i dont know what to do.
I'm hoping i don't have to format the drive because theres like 8000 songs on it and some documents (i backed up the documents, but have yet to backup the songs), but if thats my only option i guess ill try to salvage what i have.
sorry for the rant-like post but its just getting really frustrating and making m... Read more

Hi Shaftmonky, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

If you have done a couple of repair installations then I would suspect the hdd drive. If you can find out who the manufacturer is you should go to their web site and download their diagnostic tool. You will need to burn it to a CD and then boot from it, you may need to changed the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, you will want to make the hdd the second device.

I seem to be having SSL/random errors when sites are loading.
The errors are random with no correlation between sites times or anything like that.
My original post is located here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576281/virusmalware-possible-iat-hookrootkit/
I was told to post here and link that post, in any case it has a lot more information on what I had found and problems I was having.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium SP.1.
The original problem I was having was that I would get these random errors or similar when loading pages on anything that used internet so it wasn't one specific browser.
Now after the scans I haven't noticed any errors coming up or stopping me from going to these sites but then again its random so I am not sure here. While scanning I found the suspicious paths in .dll files from using RogueKiller which made me suspect something worse?
I followed the prep guide starting at step 6 as I was told to, there are other logs in my previous post listed above.

Last night our second family PC Blue Screened with an 0x4E PFN_LIST_CORRUPT error which is a very strong indicator of corrupted memory.

Memory is Crucial Ballistix PC3200 (DDR 400) in a 4x512 (2 gigs) configuration in a socket 939 system Epox 9NPA+Ultra motherboard.

The specs on this memory are as follows: 2.8 voltage which the motherboard has it set at correctly as well as in 2T. The CAS is a designed 2-2-2-6 but mobo has it set at 3-4-4-8 which is probably due to the 4x512 configuration and 2T

Ran memtest and into the fifth PASS received 212 errors all in Test 5. I saw enough so I tested each stick individually for the minimum Passes of 7 and no errors on any of them even in test 5.

So I reinstalled all four sticks, checked the BIOS settings and ran Memtest again and in the very first PASS I received 20 errors in Test 5.

Any ideas?

A:4 Memory Sticks Installed = Errors; Individually Tested = Zero Errors

maybe i misread your testing method, but could it be a bad dimm?
