Preferred Solution: Windows could not start the Windows Event Log service on Local Compurter. Error 5: Access is denied

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: Windows could not start the Windows Event Log service on Local Compurter. Error 5: Access is denied

Hi Bob,

This issue can be caused due to the incorrect permission settings for the administrators group.

I would like to suggest you perform the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.

1. In the "Start" menu, locate "Command Prompt". Right-click and choose "Run as Administrator". If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

2. Type the following commands, then press "Enter" to execute them one by one. Please note the space before the command and its parameter.

takeown /f C:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi\rtbackup
cacls C:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi\rtbackup /G administrators:F

3. Restart the computer to check the issue.

What’s the result?Arthur Li - MSFT

I am using Windows 7 Home Basic 32 bit.Realtime Protection: Panda Cloud AV, Windows Firewall, Windows Defender, Winpatrol Plus, Sandboxie and No Autorun.The problem started after I uninstalled 3 other resident products.1. MSE 2 beta2. MBAM Pro3. Trend Micro Web Protection Add-on.I got the error in Action Center.I went to services and tried to manually start the service. There I got the error message.I found an old post, describing the same problem.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic279320.html

A:Security Center service cannot start on Windows 7: Error 5 Access Denied

Most third party security AV/AS software will disable Windows security software in favor of their own. This is normal. Using more than one anti-virus security program at one time is not recommended. They can interfere with each other giving you gaps in coverage, cause conflicts that lead to system crashes, and tend to slow your system down by using excessive resources. Pick one that you like and stick with it.

Hey guys,
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I can not start Windows Firewall, Diagnostic Policy Service, Diagnostic Service Host, or Diagnostic System Host. When I try and start them manually in services.msc, it gives me Error Code 5: Access denied. Both BFE and Windows Firewall Authorization driver are running. I am logged in as an administrator, and I have already allowed full control of these services for the Administrator accounts and the user "SYSTEM" in Regedit. If you need more information, please let me know. This is my first post, so I don't know if there is any other information that you need. Thanks!

A:Windows Firewall service will not start, Error Code 5: Access Denied

Use Diagnose and fix Windows firewall service problem automatically -

Diagnose and fix Windows Firewall service problems automatically

OR

Go to BFE in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BFE

and then click on Add and typed in the space "Everyone" and save the changes. Then go to services.msc and start up the BFE service .

As the title says, I can't seem to start the base filtering service. every time I try, it ends up with the same 'access is denied' error. I have poked around on the Internet for this error, found multiple solutions on different sites, but none seems to have worked for me, so here I am starting my own thread.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go to Start/Search and type services.msc. Right click Base Filtering Engine Service and choose Properties. Go to the Logon tab. Logon as This Account and choose Local Service. click OK, go to the Dependencies tab make sure RPC is showing.
Go back to General tab and choose Automatic for Startup type. and Start the service.

My wife's laptop runs Vista Business SP1. It is in a Server 2003 domain. She connects through my wireless AP, but the DHCP service is actually provided by a Pix firewall. I have 3 other laptops running XP that all connect fine, and so do all wired clients. The Vista laptop only gets an internal connection and an auto-configuration IP. The DHCP client is not running (see the error in the event log below).All this started a couple of days ago. I am not aware of any configuration changes that conincided with this issue.Everything seems work fine with a static IP address, but that's not a solution.I found a few threads that talked about a similar issue that was resolved by adding full permissions to two registry keys for the Network Service account. This did not work for me. It sounds like my issue could be related to this and this, but the laptop here worked fine for years in the exact same configuration. Alas, everybody seems to be in the dark about this issue.Is there really no solution but reinstalling Vista?Log Name:      SystemSource:        Service Control ManagerDate:          2009-06-23 22:54:15Event ID:      7023Task Category: NoneLevel:         ErrorKeywords:      ClassicUser:          N/AComputer:      [...]Description:The DHCP Client service terminated with the following error: Access is denied.

Hi, thanks for the post. In order to narrow down the issue, you can collect log file on this issue.  
 
On the problematic computer, restore original settings and make sure you can repro "Access Denied" error. Then, follow below steps to collect data.
 
1. Download process monitor from
 
http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/ProcessMonitor.zip
 
2. Extract ProcessMonitor.zip to the problematic client.
3. Run Procmon.exe (Process Monitor)
4. Reproduce this issue.
5. Click File->Save from Process Monitor, compress and send the log files to me.
6. Send ?access denied? screen capture to me.
 
Repeat Step 1 - 6 on another machine with this kind of issue and send data to me. You can send it to me via [email protected] Zhu - MSFT

System: Win 7 Ultimate x64 on an HP Pavilion DV6. My account is the only proper user account on the laptop and is an admin account.
When trying to do a system restore, it came up with an error that the Volume Shadow Copy service was not working, though that error code is irrelevant for the purposes of this question as I later managed to run system restore in safe mode from an old restore point...
When trying to turn on VSS, I checked services.msc (which I ran as administrator) and VSS was off and was on manual. I tried clicking start, the following error came up:
"Windows could not start the Volume Shadow Copy service on Local Computer.
Error 5: Access is denied."
I then changed it to automatic and tried again, same error. I have since tried everything I can possibly think of (including setting it back and forth between manual & auto while trying the below solutions) to get the service to start, to no avail. Solutions tried so far:
net start vss in elevated cmd - returns the same error (error 5 access is denied)
vssvc.exe in elevated cmd - same
changed permissions to full control for myself, admin group and NETWORK SERVICE (which I had to add) for System32 folder and for vssvc.exe but no change

I have been trying to resolve this issue since Friday with no great progress.

The main issue is that a program on the laptop needs the Background Intelligent Transfer Service set to Automatic start, however when you try to change this setting, I get an Access Denied error (Error 5), I also get a similar access denied error when trying to manually start the service.

I have done the following 'general fixes' with no success; chkdsk /r, sfc /scannow, windows update repair tool and windows repair.
Other things I've tried:

Setting permissions in the registry for the BITS entries to give full access using the user's account.
Setting a password on the Administrator account.
Repairing BITS using guide on another forum.
Start the service from Administrator account (in safe-mode) and new Temp account (with admin rights).
Precautionary virus & spyware scan as I've read that Vundo virus can cause problems like this, albeit not found.
Other information that may help:

I get the same error on the Automatic Updates service.
I noticed corruption on the Path to Executable:, where instead of reading %SystemRoot% it read %fystemRoot%, although I fixed these entries in Regedit.
When going into Safe-Mode it logs straight in to the user created account instead of normally asking at logon screen which account to login with (Administrator account not in list, but does exist)

I recently installed a new printer (Canon PIXMA MX922) and I cannot share the printer with other laptops because the Windows Firewall cannot be started. I went looking for help online and as a result I went into the dependency services and I encounter this roadblock. I don't know where the problem started, but several months ago I switched my antiviral from Avast free version to AVG subscription. I then thought I would install a free firewall so I tried both Comodo and Zone Alarm, but each one of those seemed to reek havoc on my system and I ended up doing a system restore to get things back to normal. I have also used Revo uninstaller (free version) to remove the residuals of these programs. I tried reinstalling the Windows Firewall but that did nothing. I have a Netgear N300 Router in front of the system. I would appreciate any help. I don't want to do a complete reformatting of the hard drive. Is there any way to fix this that isn't terribly complicated. I've looked at solutions that require going in and editing the registry but I am VERY hesitant to do this since I am a novice. Thank you all.

I had trouble updating the MSE definitions a couple of days ago and I tried everything to get it to update, something about no connection. I gave up and uninstalled MSE completely using Revo. From Microsoft's web site, I downloaded and installed the newest version of MSE and the definitions updated just fine. Finally, the action center red flag is gone. However, a couple of days later, an alert comes back. This time, it's notifying me that Windows Security Center Service is turned off. With the Action Center open, I clicked "turn on now" but nothing happens, Security Center remains off.
I go to Run-services.msc and scroll down to Security Center and double click on it. Service status says "stopped". I click start and get the message, "Windows could not start the Security Center Service on local computer. Error 5: Access is denied.
This is all done from an administrator account.
Why wasn't I able to update MSE definitions and why, after a reinstall of a perfectly working MSE, am I now unable to turn on Security Center Services?

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 have tried starting the RPC service manually using the command specified in the registry entry (%SystemRoot%\system32\svchost -k rpcss) and nothing happens, no error message , etc. If I try net start rpcss I get the "Access is denied" message.

My first thought was to replace svchost.exe and explorer.exe with versions expanded from the Service Pack cache. Normally that is straight forward with a CD-ROM drive or the Recovery Console and unfortunately this computer has neither (its a mini). I tried to drag and drop the Recovery Console file onto CF but drag and drop is not functional on this computer (presumably because explorer.exe is not loading right). I also tried running "cf <recovery console file>>" to see if that would install it, but it did not.

So my questions:

1) Any suggestions to troubleshoot the RPC Server "Access is denied error"

2) What steps can I take to manually install the Recovery Console without drag and drop?

Thanks.

Michael

Hello,

I have been trying to enable the search feature on my windows 7 64-bit machine but when I attempt to do so, or use indexing, nothing seems to happen. When I try to enable windows search in services I get "Windows could not start the Windows Search service on Local Computer - error 5 access denied."

When I detect problems in search and indexing it tells me windows search service is not running but lists the error as not fixed. When I try to manually add a config folder in the ProgramData - Microsoft - Search - Data folder it erases itself after a few seconds.

This account has full admin control, I don't get it. I even tried to do this through the hidden admin account.

This laptop is only a month old but I can't turn the search feature on. I think maybe if I modify it to not include the external in indexing it would not mess up, but I can't even touch the modify button without enabling windows search, which is currently impossible. Any help?

Try reregistering the windows installer service:

You want to unregister and then reregister.

1) Start> Run

2) Type in msiexec /unreg

3) Press enter

4) Start> Run

6) Press enter

Hopefully that will fix it, if not let us know. A Guy

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.

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.

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,

 

When opening the Command Prompt, please right click it and run as Administrator. Meanwhile, make sure the user has administrator privileges on target PC. If the issue
persists, try to disable UAC on both sides.

 

As far as I know the Security Level on Windows 7 is higher than the level on Windows XP.  Therefore, 'psexec' works to all machines.

OK let's see what's up. Yesterday I woke up and suddenly my wifi wasn't showing any networks and my wifi manager kept crashing. I have a Samsung RV511 and for the year or so that I've had it there has never been this problem. Following instructions I found online I've done just about everything but everytime I try and start up the autoconfig service in 'services' I get error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.
I found this post on this forum: wireless service can't start
I did all the things mentioned, including downloading the reg files again from the link given in the thread, but to no avail. I even went to the drastic measure of deleting my wifi and lan drives from the network adapters part of Device Manager and downloaded two from the Samsung website. The computer is exactly how it was though; my LAN remains intact while wifi is just the same. I've run virus scans (I've had Avast since November 2011), run wise doctor to fix registry and used SuperAntiSpyware to remove any spyware it found. Overall I spent almost 16 hours trying to sort this yesterday and I'm at my wit's end. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also, even though the LAN works from my downloaded drivers, is it possible I have the wrong one for my wifi? Or are they somewhat interchangeable?

Hi, welcome to Tenforums.
Wlansvc only runs if:
a. ethernet is not active/connected
b. Wifi is active

Presumably since you have used this you have
a. Enabled Wifi e.g. via the tile in the Action Centre
b. ensured you are not in airplane mode
c. pressed your Wifi button to switch it on
d. your Wifi is enabled on your router.

Now a number of people have reported problems post 1511 as you probably know.
E.g.
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...7-538556dd08a3

I also noted this comment:
Windows 10 update 1511 removes TLS 1.0 authentication from Windows. You have to use TLS 1.2.
from
Windows 10 version 1511, no longer able to connect to Enterprise WiFi

Atheros 9000 series cards seem to be problematic with 1511.

Please add your Wifi card type to your system specs.

Hello. I have a folder share on my Windows 7 computer and I was trying to access it with a Windows XP Home computer in the house. However, I kept getting an "Access Denied" error whenever I tried to write to the folder. How can I fix this?

Also, sometimes when accessing .zip files and .exe fines from one XP Home computer to another XP Home computer, I get a "Unspecified security risk" and "Access denied" error respectively. How do I fix this?
 

A:Access Denied error when trying access Windows 7 folder from Windows XP

multiple levels of controls here

the XP needs the LLTP service from SP3 to be able to share w/ win7

there are two layers of access for share resources:

the network access
the NTFS access
The simplest solution is to use Simple Sharing and share via the All Users\Shared Documents\ directory. The Admin can set Allow Modifications (or not as needed),
which create the NTFS perms for the <Everyone> group.

So, *IF* you have network access (you can see the shared folder and it's contents),
then the NTFS permissions are the controlling factor.

IF not, the the network access is in control and you need to figure out Simple Sharing vs not-so-simple and those requirements

Hi all,

I've been trying to install the Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I am able to install it, but after I restart my computer, Windows attempts to configure the Service Pack and then fails causing it the system to revert. Once the desktop appears, I see a window that says the configuration failed with error code 80070005. I am still able to get to my desktop and operate as normal, but no Service Pack is installed.

I've tried some of the main troubleshooting options: Used the System Update Readiness Tool (SURT), ran a sfc /scannow (no problems), removed temporary internet files, ran Microsoft Hotfix, disabled antivirus and firewalls during installation and configuration.

Here are some notes that may help with diagnostics:

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.

2. I have edited the regedit parameters in other recommendations to the HKEY.

3. I have run Windows Fixit Troubleshooter.

NOTHING works. I am out of options. Could it possibly be a hardware/component issue? The system in question is several years old, and used heavily.

I have no other avenues except a full system wipe, and with the age of the terminal I am not even sure that would solve it.

So far, I have reinstalled the software and drivers. They are up to date. I checked the permission in registry for wwansvc and it looks fine. All the dependencies of wwansvc is working correctly. I even checked their permission as well and looked fine.


this service is logged in as Local Service account which I am sure has all the right permissions. And ofcourse I am trying to start the service with administrator account. I also tried to create another admin account just to see if that would work but it
didn't.

I have checked all the wan profiles which are not corrupted. I even checked the Program Data folder which looks fine as well.

Ran commands: Sfc /scannow , dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth as well - No luck with these


At this point, I am not sure what is the fix for this issue? Reinstalling will be the last option but I really want to find the fix

A:MSconfig: An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service

Boot into Safe Mode and boot into the built in Administrator account. If you log in automatically, log out and log in as Built in Administrator.
If that fails, then in msconfig, on the General tab, make sure Normal boot is checked. Then go to the Boot.ini tab, press Check all Boot paths, if that still fails.
If you made the change to go into Safe Mode in msconfig and then you can't get back, you can edit your c:\boot.ini file and remove the /safeboot:minimal switch.
You can get their by right clicking My Computer, Properties, Advanced, Startup and Recovery, Settings, Edit (this opens Notepad on your boot.ini file), make the adjustment to remove the /safeboot:minimal parameter, File, Save.

System: Win 7 Ultimate x64 on an HP Pavilion DV6. My account is the only proper user account on the laptop and is an admin account.

In short, when trying to do a system restore, it come up with an error that the Volume Shadow Copy Service was not working, though that error code is irrelevant for the purposes of this question as I later managed to run system restore in safe mode from an age old restore point...

When checking services.msc (run as admin), VSS was off and was on manual. Changed it to automatic and then when I tried clicking start, the following error came up:

Windows could not start the Volume Shadow Copy service on Local Computer.

I have since tried everything I can possibly think of (including setting it back and forth between manual & auto) to get the service to start, to no avail. Solutions tried so far:

- net start vss in elevated cmd - returns the same error (error 5 access is denied)

A:Error 5 (access denied) when starting Volume Shadow Copy service (VSS)

Just writing an update to say I managed to solve the problem by turning off my AV completely before starting the service and it worked (I obviously changed it back to manual once it started)!

Annoyingly, I had actually already tried this before by turning off individual components of my AV at a time (eg firewall), but for some reason had overlooked trying to turn the whole thing off...

Out of interest, does anyone have any idea what in the AV (KIS 2015) would be blocking VSS from starting suddenly (I haven't changed any of its settings from before the issue arose)?

As mentioned in my previous post, Help Mode is of no help as the options all lead me back to the blue screen. Therefore I tried something different.
