Preferred Solution: Microsoft to shutter security 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.)

"As of July 1, 2014, due to changing governmental policies concerning the issuance of automated electronic messaging, Microsoft is suspending the use of email notifications," the company told the mailing list's members.The use of the word "suspending" leave opens the possibility that Microsoft will resume the practice at some later date.Figures...Big Brother sticking his nose where it doesn't belong.

I've tried to sign up for the Microsoft Security Notification Service: Comprehensive Edition over months but haven't received a single email. No welcome email either. I've checked in my spam folders too. Clicking Subscribe does not seem to change any of
my Microsoft subscriptions.

Clicking Subscribe turns both buttons grey momentarily and then they return to their previous appearance.

How can I get an email subscription to this from Microsoft? Thank you!

I have been subscribing to "Microsoft Security Advisory Notification" and a lot of other Microsoft news with my personal Microsoft account and many years ago I added my work mail as where subscriptions should be sent. Now several acquisitions later
that old mail domain will be shut down and I will not get mails sent to that address anymore.
I have been trying to add my new work mail as where those mails should be relayed, but it is not allowed to add an existing work mail as a subscription address in your private Microsoft account. You
must log in with a Microsoft account to create new alerts and I am not allowed to create a Microsoft account with my work mail, so I can create new subscriptions to that address. I get the feeling of a catch 22.
I find it really weird that your now allowed to send Microsoft news and especially the "Microsoft Security Advisory Notification" to your work mail, where you usually have a need to be notified about these kind of news.
Anyone got a suggestion about what I am doing wrong or have any idea of a feasible way to get this information sent to your work email?

When is enough enough?
Is this MS product overkill?

Do we really need to "pay" for additional security from M$?
What with our already installed Firewalls, Spybots, Ad-Aware's, Spyware Guard/Blasters, etc. etc.
Plus, will this make Windows Update ineffective or obsolete?

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.

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 cannot count how many times I have downloaded and installed this update. This isn't a major think, just a minor inconvience. It doesslow down my shut down time because it says there is a Update to install. Thanks in adavance for any help.

A:[SOLVED] Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB936181

Hi guysmiley !

Download the install file :
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
Then disconnect from the internet : if wired unplug the cable, if wireless right-click the wireless tray icon and click deactivate or turn the router off. Then disable your firewall and antivirus and try to install the file. Make sure you reenable your firewall and antivirus before you reconnect to the internet and tell us how that went.

If that didn't work install this other update for XML Core Services 4.0 SP2 first. According to this thread on the ms newsgroups it seems to work for most people.

QUOTE(ewu @ Oct 14 2010, 05:25 PM) I am running XP and it seems to function well with the exception of multiple mshta.exe incidences. I fell victim to the security essentials trojan but Avast was able to catch it before my system was substantially compromised. It seems like most items have been removed aside from the mshta.exe issue.Exactly every hour, Avast alerts to mshta.exe accessing a location and blocks it. When I check the task manager it sometimes comes up many times. I have taken to ending mshta.exe whenever I see it.I have run quick and full scans with Avast, Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and Spybot.

Firstly apologies for the length of this one, I've been on it for a while and wanted to share what I could in the hope it might trigger some ideas.


I'm currently receiving an influx support tickets for Windows 7 (x64) devices that are getting the "Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service" error when logging on for the first time.

It's predominantly laptops and mainly older Lenovo X230's but there are far more X230 machines without the problem than with it at this time so I'm struggling to tie it down to a specific build, update, application etc. Instances of the issue starting range
from 6 months ago to last week and I have around 200 devices affected (but this is rising).


The issue happens like this for some of the users:

    # User boots machine up from being switched off
    # Machine boots and gets to logon screen
    # User is unable to logon using their fingerprint reader, the green light isn't lit
    # They try to logon using username / password, this fails
    # "Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service" error appears (blue, full screen like the "please wait..." when booting)
    # They are then able to try again and the logon is successful
    # Error doesn't occur again until they reboot

Many of the users report their machines are also very slow to logon ... Read more

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.

I need to be alerted when the Windows XP Fax Services stops or is stopping without going into services.msc myself to check. Is there any way I can get an alert when this happens so that I don't have to check it everyday? I have to check it daily since it stops itself for no apparent reason and I can't figure out why. I've even posted on this site about it to no avail. SO, I'd be happy if I could get an automatic alert when this happens. Thanks.

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.

A: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.

I have an event error message "SPP Notification Service event id 7023" at windows 7.

The event viewer file is attached.

Please let me know how to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

A:SPP Notification Service event id 7023

It looks like it might be an important service based on a quick look on google. Open an elevated command prompt and run "SFC /scannow". It will detect any system file errors and attempt to repair them. If it can't repair them, do a repair install.

Hello,
New to WindowsXP (Pro) ,I did some reading here and there,
visited the commonly referenced sites in the forums like ElderGeek
and BlackViper's but it's not clear to me if I need some stuff running...

Have some of you disabled the above SENS service and/or
COM+ Event System service at your system ?
Did you have any problems ?
(I don't like all this logging and -maybe- useless processing)

I have a standalone PC connected with a modem to the Net.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

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.

Thanks

I have a problem with the system event notification service. Whenever I use my Asus V1JP-AK028E with Vista Business to access any Standard User account, it comes up with an error message - "Login failed, System Event Notification Service service could not start. Contact a system administrator".

When using password login to a Maintenance account I created, it comes up with the same error. This is an administrator account. When using fingerprint login to this account, it works, but the error message comes up in a popup when I first see my desktop, and then I'm logged off.

This was new yesterday, and I don't have the Vista Business disk, because it was preinstalled by PowerPlay Direct Ltd. If anyone has any ideas, please email me on [email protected] Thanks.

I am using win 7 home basic edition.
There was a power failure and could not shut down the system.
when i started the system it gave me this error.

Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification

system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for
details about why the service didn't respond.

i have also booted in safe mode and went to the command prompt in safe mode and did a netsh winsock reset.But still i am getting this error.does anybody know a solution to this problem?

A:System event notification service error!!!

Try using system restore. I am quite certain that will resolve your problem

System Restore

You may try an sfc scan first, but I am not as certain about the results.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

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.

More: I can't access the Windows Help & Support pages. And I'm told to "see System Events log" for details, but when I try, it says "Event Log Service is unavailable."

I have tried netsh winsock reset but it doesnt help

Please help!
 

A: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 have a Dell XPS 13 9370 laptop with Windows 10 (with all updates) running Norton Security. I tried to "Shut Down" Windows and for over 24 hours the screen has been saying, "Please wait for the System Event Notification Service". I tried a long press of the power button, but when I restart I get the same message. I then tried draining the battery and got the Dell "Battery Critically Low" message, ran the Dell diagnostic test (no problems detected), then restarted, but got the same "Wait for SENS" message again. The other option from the Dell "Battery Critically Low" screen is to enter the BIOS setup, but I have no idea what to do there. I can't find a fix on Google.

I can't run Tech Support Guy's SysInfo because I can't access the computer.

I would be *very* grateful for help -- *please!*

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.

A: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.
