Windows Vista: "System Event Notification Service"?

Q: Windows Vista: "System Event Notification Service"?

Please Help !

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!

Preferred Solution: Windows Vista: "System Event 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.)

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"

* I have tried looking at the event viewer but every time it says that the event log service is unavailable.

A:Windows failed to conect to " system event notification service"

This seems to be a common problem, I am now also experiencing the same.
I have Win 7 Home Premium 64. Did chkdsk /r, defragged, tried sfc/scannow scanned for viruses and even tried reseting winsock.
My aero themes are greyed out, when trying to fix it with MS fixit it errors out.
It takes a long time to boot and then says "failed to connect to System event notification service"

One search on google will show this is a major problem, so why does MS not come out with a fix.
This seems to be the biggest frustration with Win 7 compared to XP, lack of support from MS.

Today I booted up my laptop to get this screen - my desktop without an aero theme and the error message on-screen.

Nothing unusual happened last time I used my PC. No installation or updates that I am aware of.

The computer cannot shut down properly now either, it just hangs after the desktop icons are gone. I am forced to hard shutdown.

My 6-week-old Dell running Vista Home Basic 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. It also prevents several programs within Kaspersky Internet Security from starting. Rebooting doesn't help. And the problem occurs regardless of whether I sign on as administrator or as general user.

Sounds like you will need to replace the hard drive before you reinstall.

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 logged on to my computer as an administrator and my desktop didnt display for about 4 minutes. There was only a black screen with the white mouse arrow on it. When the desktop had loaded a Windows notification
bubble popped up saying:

"Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification
Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the

I don't believe that I have installed any software etc. recently that could have caused this problem to occur. It just randomly happened one day. In sync with this error I am unable to connect to the internet using my 3 mobile modem and my laptop isn't recognising any wireless signals bringing up the message:

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.

The problem is when I log in into windows normally it takes a while for Windows to boot up. 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.

The problem is the exact same as the issues found here except I am using Windows 7 64 bit.

As for in event viewer. Im not to sure what to look for in there.

Ive looked at several familiar threads, I did the sfc /scannow twice, i did a windows start up repair, I disabled all non-windows services, and even just tried restarting the service in services.

I'm not really sure what to do next. I'm tempted to just to do a clean install. However I am cautious on doing so, in case its some kind of hardware problem...

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. Please contact your system administrator" When this error is receive i always notice the startup time take an extra 2-4 minutes before it even gets to the login screen. 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


Anything anyone else can suggest would be great or if someone has been able to fix this issue permanantly please let me know???

I have been getting these "Bad Pool Header" and "System Service Exception" BSODs for about a day now (the "Bad Pool Header" one tends to pop up more often then the other btw). I ran a registry cleaner which didn't work and ran memtest this morning and it showed that my memory was fine. The BSODs tend to occur more often when I am playing a game or running some program that uses a bit more memory but it also happens when I am just on the internet. On the other hand, last night I did nothing but surf YouTube for 3 hours and didn't get a BSOD at all. However, since then I haven't been able to do anything for more than 10 minutes (without being in safe mode) without it crashing, and this morning it completely froze until I turned it off. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. It came preinstalled from the manufacturer and unfortunately I do not have the install disc. The entire laptop is less than 2 years old and there have been no major hardware changes and I have never reinstalled the OS.

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.

Hi, I recently made some upgrades to a (previously fine) PC - they were

- Installing 4GB extra RAM, of the same variety
- Reinstalling windows on a new SSD (a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB)

I previously also upgraded to Windows 10, but a bunch of blue screens and other issues later I reinstalled 7. I'm still having problems though - the current symptoms are that every so often (1-3 times a day) the computer will hang for ~1-2 minutes on the 'starting windows' screen. When it finally loads, it will often hang for further extended periods before settling down. I checked in these event log and during these periods there will be many 'atapi' errors, with Event ID 11 "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0." (I have attached a screenshot).

There will sometimes be other errors, usually relating to the timeout of certain things, but the previously mentioned error is by far the most prolific. On rare occasions there have been more serious errors - never blue screens since going back to windows 7, but once I booted to a black screen with just a mouse (was able to shut down via task manager then following a restart seemed ok).

Through some investigation, it does seem to be that the root cause of the problem is the SSD; I identified this a while ago and have tried various fixes, including:

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.

since about 3 months ago, my computer has been experiencing multiple BSOD's per day. upon looking in the event viewer, ever single time and event with something to do with a "VSS service" is the last thing before the crash. i find this strange, as looking into this, vss is a backup program for xp and server 2000. i have no idea why this is on my system, what it does, or why i need it. after trying to use some debugging tools, it seems that i cannot access the .dmp files on my own computer, logged in as an administrator, with full privileges, with all file security options in my anti-virus off. my system is a x32 vista business. the crahses occur almost at random, doing anything from playing a game, using Firefox, typing a notepad file, or just leaving the thing on and not doing anything for more than 10 minutes. the system will still crash at the log in screen, leaving me to believe that this is not an overheating issue. i have tried to disable all programs with mscofig, but i still get a crash. i have even had crashes in sleep mode, as well as in the process of a normal shutdown. i have no new updates in windows update, and have installed all of the new drivers for every device i can find them for. any and all help would greatly be appreciated.

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.

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 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 know this was from an old thread (nearly two years, actually), but I wanted to make sure it was still more readily accessible. I searched for nine hours today and kept running against the same set of "fixes" which didn't fix anything.

I have Vista Home (64bit) and somehow (I truly have *no* idea), Windows Installer disappeared. I don't mean turned off or otherwise inaccessible. It wasn't there. I went back and forth to services, etc. searched (online and on the computer) and got NOWHERE - until I found this thread:

Repair Windows Installer Service in Vista (All Versions)

It was simple but I never even thought about it. I followed the steps with one exception: because my msiserver service file was completely absent from the damaged registry running "sfc/scannow" didn't do anything and I had to open the services file and import the changes from there rather than double clicking the msiserver.reg file. I am very, very grateful to have had this information and I hope by posting my experience from today here, it will help someone else who's ready to drop kick their computer...

Thanks,

Sorry, I know that a thread already exist with the Title "Failure to connect to System Event Notification service".
But having tried everything in the thread and without any success, I decided that it was important to post the solution that fixed the problem in my case.
I had the problem with Windows 7.
After many hours trying anything I found on the web, I was being reinstalling my BitDefender AntiVirus.
(Because I uninstalled is to allow me to perform a System Restore to a date before the problem occured)
Anyway my System Restore did not work.
Then, while I was reinstalling BitDefender, the problem was still there...
But during the re-installation of BitDefender, the installer told me that I should uninstall MalwareBytes because it could cause conflicts. So I did.
Then after rebooting, and the problem was gone at the next login and then BitDefender finalised it's installation.
So, I strongly believe that it was solved by uninstalling MalwareBytes.
Now, after 4 reboots, I don't see the problem anymore.

I know there was a thread earlier about the same issue but the solution doesn't seem to work for me.

This is the message i am getting on startup:

"Failed to connect to a windows service.
Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited 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."

The message comes with a very slow start up.

The computer doesn't seem to recognize any of the wireless networks either, so i currently can't connect to the internet either. So i am using a different computer right now.

I am using a Gateway T-1620 with Windows Vista Home Premium 32. Microsoft Security essentials is running and the firewall is down.

I have a desktop computer running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1. Yesterday, Vidcoder (a front end for Handbrake) attempted to update to version 2.44, but Norton blocked the update with a security warning (vidcodercommon.dll, threat WS.Reputation.1). Because I found a reference to Vidcoder and AutoComplete Pro, I followed the advice at https://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-autocomplete-pro/ - and ran AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free, and HitmanPro.

Now, my computer boots slowly to an account with Admin privileges, but shows a bubble message, "Failed to connect to a windows service. Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited 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." The computer has no internet access, and says, "Not connected. No connections are available." A Norton Internet Security scan is clean (but limited because there is no internet access).

Google reveals multiple posts about this problem, with multiple suggested fixes. For fear of making the problem worse, I have not tried any of the fixes, and I have not done a system restore. I would greatly apreciate some help. Thank you.

Usually it's a driver or COM component that's causing this. What does your Application and System event log show you as warnings or errors?

I use the subscription to EventID.net. It has been greatly helpful. I don't have this analyser but am a big believer in using the Event Viewer. I'll add a description I have written up which will help in determining the Events: This may be useful in addition to the Event Analyzer.

One thing I have not been able to do is keep the filters set with the software in the OS.

Find the Error(s)in the Event Viewer that correspond to the crash/freeze/error message/blue screen, etc.:

Description of the Event Viewer:




Unfortunately, many Windows XP users aren't aware of the Event Viewer, what it is, where it is, how it can help with a problem:
The Event Viewer has logs for everything that happens on the computer. There are three sets of logs: System, Applications and Security. By opening the first two to display the Events, you can look for Errors that correspond to the time of the problem- in your case, the crash.

There are three types of Events in the System and Apps logs:
1. Information (white circle w/blue i): this is just basic documentation of the normal working of the System or Apps.
2. Warnings (yellow triangle w/black exclamation mark) noting some problem at that moment. Warnings usually resolve on their own. If they do not, they become>>>
