Windows not auditing event log service start

Q: Windows not auditing event log service start

Hello Everybody,
We have a requirement in our project to audit all security relevant events on the system, including the start/stop of auditing functions. The problem is that windows is not registering the start of event log service when you manually stop/start the service.
There only an audit event on the system log, but linked to the system startup and not under security category when you do the start/stop manually. Is this a windows bug or a matter of configuration?
Best regards,
Alejandro.

Preferred Solution: Windows not auditing event log service start

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.)

whenever i try to start windows event log from services i get the message:

"Windows could not start the windows event log service on local computer.

how can i specify the path?
or
how can i resolve the problem?

any help would be appreciated please---thanks

A: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.

Okay, I am a pretty technical user, and I am really struggling with this issue, and I wasn't 100% sure which section to post this in. I used to share videos over my network with multiple xboxs and a ps3. I recently installed Norton Internet Security on my system, and after doing so, I was not able to stream videos anymore. I tried changing firewall settings, and permissions and such, but could not get it to work, so I uninstalled NIS from my system. After doing so, the Windows 7 firewall service will not start. If i look at the event log, it gives me Event ID 7024 : The Windows Firewall service terminated with service-specific error Access is denied.. I have run the norton removal tool, and this has not fixed the problem.

Hi Everyone,
 
I am trying to fix up my parents computer that is running Vista Home Premium but I can't get the Event Log Service to start, and as a result, Task Scheduler won't start either, nor will any of the services that require Task Scheduler in order to work, like defrag. Not sure if it is what is causing System Restore to not work as well but it isn't working either.
 
System Restore appeared to be working as programs like Revo can make restore points, but I cannot make one manually and of course, it doesn't make the scheduled restore points due to Task Scheduler not working. I did not notice that I couldn't make restore points in System Restore until after I ran the Windows Repair from Tweaking.com.
 
The Windows Repair program caused some problems so I went to use System Restore only to find that Windows Repair program had deleted all of them, even the one I told the Windows Repair to create wasn't there. That program also caused some other problems but thankfully the registry backup I had it make was there which helped me resolve the problems it created. It was then that I tried to make a restore point and found I could not do it.
 
In any case, I am left with my original problem of the Event Log Service not starting which I need to have running in order to have the Task Scheduler work. Both are set to automatic in services but neither will start. When I try to start the Event Log Service, I get a Error 1747: The authentication service is unknow... Read more

Hi All,
I'm having a problem with my wireless networking on XP whereby no wireless networks can be found. Basically it says "one or more wireless networks are in range", but when i click the bubble it shows no networks at all, even when i refresh. Normally it shows my home network (access point about 15 metres away) along with around 3-5 other networks from various neighbours. The issue is on the desktop PC not the access point as the laptop i'm typing this from is connecting fine.

After spending many hours trying everything I can find on forums related to this issue and ruling out solutions one by one, i've narrowed it down to a probable specific issue with something called the "event Log Service". From browsing forums I think fixing this issue will fix my problem - either way it's definately giving an error message that sounds not nice.

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.

Hello,

 

I have several Win 7 machines that all have this same issue.


 

When you try to view the Event Log I get an error saying the service is not running.

 

The service is set to Automatic. When you try to start it you get the error below.

 

Windows could not start the Windows Event Log service on Local Computer.

Error 0x80007000e: Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.

 

I have tried everything I can to fix this and am now out of ideas. Not all Win 7 machines have this issue, but most in our network do.

 

Any thoughts.

A:Event Viewer will not start - Service not running - Not enough storage space

Hi,
 
According to the error message, there’s no enough storage on your drive.

 
How much feel space in your C drive? The default event log should be located in C:\Windows\System32\winevt\logs
 
Please replace these logs to other drive and restart the service to see if the same issue occurs.
 
Since the issue occur with many machines, the problem may related with the installation image. Did the image make by yourself? How did you deploy these Windows 7
PC? And did the issue appear in a new installed Windows 7 PC?
 
Furthermore, does your workaround is a domain? Please check if any GPOs were set to those PC.
 
Hope that helps.

OK Now this is getting very annoying. Apparently this problem has been going on for a long time (Since 05/23/05) but so infrequently that I haven't realized it. And no, I don't remember what I might have down then to start this problem.

Now I'm getting the BSOD at least once a day. The last time I wrote down the text and it listed the following "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

When I look into the event view the error lists the source as the Service Control Manager. The detailed description states:

"The USB SECURITY DEVICE service failed to start due to the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. "

I have no idea what might have started this but I do know that it suddenly got much worse after I replaced my power supply. (The Fan Died and I shut down gracefully as soon as I got the first wiff or burnt electronics.) All has worked fine since then except for the increased Frequency of this BSOD.

I'll add my full system specs as soon as I get them from the everest pgm I just downloaded.
 

A:BSOD-Event Vwr points to SCM & USB SECURITY DEVICE service failed to start

Hi GScooter,

I've investigate your minidumps and it is faulty ram. You can run memtest to stress the ram. If memtest reports the ram is faulty, ram is bad. However Memtest is not a perfect tool to test the memory as some faulty can pass memtest.

Suggestion
1. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot
2. Downclock the ram
3. Clean the inside the computer case
4. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
1. Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
2. If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram

Hi

I have an Active Directory Domain with Win2008R2 DCs and Win7 clients.
From about 2 months ago some of my clients complain about time of the system which is behind the DC time.
When I nailed the problem I noticed permissions of folder
"C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\wmi\RtBackup" folder is the key to the problem. Group 'System' should have access to this folder and

based on some unknown reasons this permission is deleted.
Because of this permission problem, 'Windows Event Log' service is stopped either.
When I correct the permission and reboot the clients, every thing works fine.


Do you know what is causing this problem? What is changing permissions of RtBackup folder?

So recently I had hardware issues, and through warranty I had several replacements done. Mobo, Video cards, ram sticks, and the power supply.

After all that was fixed and replaced my computer seemed to have ran fine for a few days, and it still technically is except for this problem.

I get a "Please wait" screen, then after a long 4 minute log in once inside windows I get the"Windows could not connect to the system event notification service", and the toolbar is grey all old school windows like.

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.

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

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?

A: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.

TL;DR: I got a scam call from Dell's "concierge" number (1-877-790-3355). The caller had several pieces of personal information, including my name and service tag, and details of my recent system servicing. He said Dell had been notified that my computer was downloading malware, and got me to open the Windows Event Viewer, showing me the errors in my administrative events folder. He told me to delete these, which was when my suspicion finally got the better of me and I hung up. He called back, first on the same number, then on another one that appeared on caller ID as "Global Pacemind" (Everett, WA, USA - 1-425-609-3257). I told him that I didn't have time right now (I wasn't yet 100% sure this was a scam, but didn't like where it was going), and he said that he'd call back.

He said that the company had received a notification from my computer that I'd used their code to activate Windows 10 (which I had - my operating system was reset to the factory-default Windows 8 during the system board replacement, and I was beginning the process of restoring my system). Because he had access to so m... Read more

Hello,
Every so often one of our Windows 7 clients which is not normally having any delay at logon will take a very long time to login. This may be 10 or 20 minutes or up to an hour in some cases.
Typically the event log will contain entries like
The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> took 572 second(s) to handle the notification event (Logon).
There is no further information available from Event Log Online Help, nor any additional detail as to why the logon event was so slow. During the delay the user will just see "Waiting for the User Profile Service" on their screen.
We first started seeing this problem with Windows Vista and if anything the situation has not improved since then. It has never happened with any of our Windows XP users.
We are currently planning a migration of computers to Windows 7 but stuff like this which has not been resolved in Windows over a 2 year period will stall that migration. The least improvement is to increase the event notification to give a lot more
information on why the user profile processing has stalled.

A:Windows 7 very slow logon, Waiting for the User Profile Service, winlogon event 6006

 
Hi,
 
When did the issue begin to occur? Did it occur after installing certain application or applying certain policy?
 
To troubleshoot the issue, please perform the following step.
 
1. Restart the machine in Safe Mode with Networking to check whether the system can login quicker.
 
2. Type “gpedit.msc” in Search box and press Enter. Navigate to the following location:
 
Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->System->Logon
 
Please double click “Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon” policy and disable it.
 
3. Perform a
Clean Boot to check the result.
 
Thanks,
Novak

Slow booting.  Really slow booting.  Seems that using an SD card for ReadyBoot/ReadyBoost is causing the issue.  But why?
On investigation, this only started happening back in November, which coincides with the install of KB2685813 UMDF 1.11 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2685813).
Could be a bit buggy....


I'll uninstall the update and see if this solves the issue.

Hmm.  Now that is interesting.
In my System event log I was getting an NTFS error (57: Failed to flush tlog).  I didn't think it was from my HDD, so using diskpart, I ran a 'CLEAN ALL' on my SD card, then recreated the FS as exFAT (previously it was NTFS).
Seems to be working now, although I'm getting VDS Basic Provider errors (Unexpected failure.  Error code:

This begs the question: if it can be safely ignored, why is it raised in the first place?
Boot time is also restored to an acceptable timescale.

Hello,

My dad has all his important files in a folder named "IMP" in E: in Windows 7. I've set auditing object access failure and enabled auditing on the IMP folder and denied read access and delete folder for all other users.

Everything is working fine and I can check the event viewer whenever my dad wants to have a look at the logs. The problem is I am not always present when he wants to have a look at the logs and since he isn't too tech savvy it would be very difficult for him to go to event viewer, filter the log with event id no. 4656, Event Sources: Microsoft Windows security auditing, Task category: File System.

A:How to create easier reporting for Windows auditing?

probably by writing a bat file and executing with admin privileges... but you have to look if there is a way to do it with console commands to event viewer in the first place (it's likely possible).

I have a few of these "shortcuts", double click and Bam! A wall of commands gets executed. Time-saver man.

Why that anyway? If it is locked to other users what is there to log? Failed attempts to open it?

I really hope you are encrypting your drive, as this measure alone is a bit weak if the disk isn't encrypted. (a punk can simply boot that PC from a Linux liveCD or USB thumbdrive and access the unencrypted disk and those files ignoring the windows policy).

I changed ownership of my C:\ in order to change permissions, be able to audit, and delete files which are locked. Usually system files are locked and I ignore those when prompted that they cannot be changed without admin approval (even providing admin approval doesn't allow their modification). I'm wondering what I have to do to be able to make decisions on my own system? Does anyone know a good step by step guide? My old Windows installation is taking up 17 gigs on my hard drive and I have a 230g hard drive. Needless to say space is precious with the size of downloads/installations being what they are (games that are 20g, Windows updates that are 3g..). Thanks in advance.

I've been testing this out on a Windows 7 Prof system to see how commands executed via the commandline are recorded in the event logs. I was able to enable all of the policy settings as noted in the article however upon testing I've noticed that not all
commands are being recorded. For example del, rename, and copy commands are not being recorded whereas other sys-admin type commands (ipconfig, netstat, nslookup..etc) are being recorded. My question is does anyone know why these commands are not being recorded

* log in screen comes up / log in
* Desktop loads ~ 1 minute

* 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.

My aero themes are greyed out, when trying to fix it with MS fixit it errors out.

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!
