About:Blank & Workstation NetLogon Service

Q: About:Blank & Workstation NetLogon Service

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.

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: 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 have a DHCP domain and some of my PC's are unable to logon to the domain I receive netlogon service not running. I go into service and try to manually start the service and I get an error -- "the dependancy service or group failed to start."

 

A:Netlogon service

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.

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.

A:Missing Netlogon Service

Looks like the registry entries got deleted:
KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanworkstation

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).

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.

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.
AMRS
 

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?

Greetings,

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
SYMPTOMS

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$

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

RESOLUTION
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.

MORE INFORMATION
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.

Last week I noticed a problem on someone's Vista machine at work. The system was running Vista Enterprise with SP1. The Workstation Service would not start and fails with the following code.

C:\Windows\system32>net start workstation
The Workstation service is starting.
The Workstation service could not be started.

System error 2 has occured

The system cannot find the file specified

As a result, several other services such as Netlogon, Computer Browser will not start because they depend on Workstation Service.

The almost same exact problem is described here http://blog.karmona.com/index.php/20...rruption-saga/ however their solution does not work.


So far I have tried the following:
chkdsk /r
sfc /scannow
Uninstalling/Reinstalling SP1
Scanned for viruses/spywate using MalwareBytes and Trendmicro OfficeScan
Used AutoRuns to check for suspicious files/drivers


At first I thought the problem was limited to one computer but so far I have experienced the problem on 3 seperate computers. 2 of them were running Vista Enterprise and the other one was running Vista Business (all with SP1)

On a side note, one of them I discovered must have had a rootkit because I found about 50gb of warez/movies hidden in C:\System Volume Information however the other 2 systems do not show signs of rootkits (or at least they're undetectable) so it could just be a coincidence.


Any ideas? Willing to post errors logs or any scans requested.

Hello,

Windows 7 is booting normally and after I type my password in the login window the text 'welcome' shows up for 8 seconds or so. Then the screen fades to black. At this point, the only thing I see is the mouse pointer (which I can move). Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work (does not respond). This black screen lasts for about 40 seconds, then Windows finally progresses to the desktop. Before this problem occurred, Windows faded directly into the desktop after the 'welcome' text. Does anyone know how to solve this?

The following quote contains the text I had prepared to post initially for the problem I was facing with sharing and using a printer on my home network. However, after doing some "research" I reached the conclusion that the reason I am having the 2 issues described below is (I believe) the fact that the Workstation service is not started (although set to Automatic). When I try to manually start it, I get the error message:

The Path to executable is "C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe -k NetworkService" and the ServiceDll is "%SystemRoot%\System32\wkssvc.dll" (which I checked and it exists in the folder).

Windows XP Professional SP3 with all latest updates.

First noted in that ipconfig and ping operate in a delayed mode. Ipconfig takes 10 -60 seconds to respond. Ping is the same.

If you use ping www.google.com -t the ping never stops responding.
If I run pingtest.bat that reads
ping www.google.ca
pingtest.bat

It will run ping 3-4 times before hanging again for 10-30 seconds then repeat.
The delay seems to effect any application that uses network access. When you select reply in outlook you get the same delay.

If the workstation service is stopped the delay goes away but returns as soon as the workstation service is re-enabled.

Hi,THE PROBLEMI removed the "Guard Online" malware from a clients PC, and now it won't access the network. It won't mount network shares on the server, or even browse the network.I can access the internet, so it's not an NIC issue.They have XP Pro SP3, and a network domain.The Computer Browser service isn't running, but when I try to start it, it fails because of a dependency on the WorkStation service.When I try to start the "WorkStation" service it fails with error 2250 (Edited: not 2205!).It also says to check the System log, which says there was a problem with RDR. (again, sorry I don't have the specific message to hand).STEPS I TOOK TO REMOVE "GUARD ONLINE"1) Kaspersky TDSSKiller.exe. This only found a couple of possible issues, not the root kit. I told it to delete them. ...hmm, I wonder if this is the cause?2) MalwareBytes Anti Malware (I updated it first). Removed 8 nasties.FURTHER STEPS TO RESOLVE CURRENT ISSUE- I tried sfc /scannow. I had to create a slipstreamed XP Pro SP3 install disk (I used nLite from www.nliteos.com). It ran through fine, but didn't fix it. That was the only promising idea I could find.QUESTIONDoes anyone have any idea how I can get the WorkStation service to run again?...or, am I "barking up the wrong tree", and this is a symptom of a bigger issue?NB: I'll post the specific error messages and ID's when I get to my client's office later.

Ok I am having several problems. First of all, internet explorer says it cannot find iexplore.exe. I also cannot view other domain computers. Workstation, Server and Computer Browser Service won't start because it says a dependency isn't there or something. I cannot start Windows Firewall and the service isn't even listed. Please help. Below is my HJT log.The other weird thing I noticed is in the description for Computer Browser it says "ededededededededede list of computers on the network..."The errors I get when trying to start the services are:Could not start the Computer Browser service on Local ComputerError 1068: The dependency service or group failed to startCould not start the Workstation service on Local ComputerError 1075: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletionAnd the same error for Server as WorkstationI tried to fix it on my own by deleting some services that didn't look legit.

A:Cannot Find Iexplore.exe, Cannot Start Browser, Workstation Or Server Service

New update. After looking at the registry at both lanmanserver and lanmanworkstation, they both have keys of DependOnGroup (which is blank) and DependOneService (set to "secure"). Secure is one of the bad services I had deleted so I am guessing that is why I cannot start these services. Can someone please help? I may need to reformat but I want to see if there is a fix for this. Thanks.

OK, I have googled and googled but I cannot find any succesfull solution for my problem.
Actually, I found one solution but it doesn't work with Windows Server 2008.

My audio device does not work, when I try to activate it it says "The Audio Service is Not Running."

I started the audio service, and it says: "The Dependency or local group failed to start"

After a bit of research, I discovered that you have to start the dependency, Windows Audio Endpoint Builder. (I checked all the other dependencies, they are started.) When I try to start this, the error comes up:
"Error 0x80070002: System cannot find the file specified."

How can I start the audio?
This is necessary to use my Server 2008.

Thanks,

yanjchan
 

A:Solved: Windows Server 2008 Workstation Audio Service

I have discovered a solution for myself!
I can't find the original page, but this worked for me.
I almost cried when hearing my system sounds.

For future reference:

1. Run cmd
2. Navigate into

Code:
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Audiosrv
3. Look at the DependOnService entry
4. Right click, edit, and remove all values except RpcSs
5. Restart, and cry with joy.

I believe this works on other Vista versions also.

Or, if you're afraid that you might mess something up, try this registry entry.
Save, right click and press "Modify".

(I am not sure if that will work, if it doesn't, try the first method.)

So I rebooted the win7 workstation went to login to it normally with the users credentials and it acts like its a new user login everything is default all pst's, docs, favs, everything is gone . If you browse the windows explorer you can see there are other similar profiles that it looks like used to be . What would happen if I tried to rename a user in Active directory?

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

A:Netlogon

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.

I got this dell laptop running xp pro and when I try to log on I get.

Unable to log you on because the netlogon service is not running on this machine.

This was in safe mode.....so am I SOL? What I do? I think I may have deleted something out of the registry....I did back it up first and I was going to restore it.....but I can't log on.

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.
 

A:NT netlogon errors

Darren,
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:

C:\Winnt\System32\Repl\Import\Scripts

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

T

Hi Guys,

I'm running an NT 4.0 network. I have a problem with my netlogon folder. The users on my network can navigate to this and have access to it. 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,
Cheers

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.

Pathios

Every time I start up my Windows XP computer, an error message appears in the event viewer
 
 
 
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.
 
but the problem is, this computer is not a member of a domain or a workgroup. it is just a computer hooked up to my high-speed internet. Google only showed results for people trying to set up a domain and one result from someone with a workgroup, and that guy had no replies, but there was nothing regarding the error message for computers with neither of those, nothing for home computers hooked up to the internet.
 
I was wondering if you can help me find the cause and help me fix it

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.
Manoj

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

5.1.2600.5512
(xpsp.080413-2113)

2. netlogn.dll

Net Logon Services DLL

5.1.2600.5512
(xpsp.080413-2113)

3. eventlog.dll

Event logging service

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.

A:Netlogon & W32time errors

is there a description that goes with each error?

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