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

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

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.

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

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

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

Windows 7 64-bit SP15

My Dell Latitude e6420 is having problems as of the past week. An error comes up on every reboot or startup of my machine. The "Failed to Start System Event Notification Service" error would come up on my screen down in the taskbar. Details below of startup:Laptop comes up slow.
Login and once desktop shows that error appears on my screen and sometimes my audio service isn't working (but it can't be the the driver for my video/audio card because sometimes it works and other things will crash meaning a corruption of some system driver.)
Takes 5-10 minutes for machine to fully boot.
Look at event log and shows Event ID Error 7026 every reboot.
I cannot find a fix for this error and nothing seems to be working. Please help with any information. Thanks.

A:Failed to Start System Event Notification Service

Windows Server 2008: Event ID 7026 this article just says what you are thinking seems to be correct. have you looked in device manager to see if there are any warning signs in there?
when your in event viewer, isn't there a link with the error that gives some help?

Started getting a BSOD Critical Service Failed yesterday. 
I've been going thru all the troubleshooting options and nothing is working, I've even gone to the point of downloading a Windows 10 ISO and booting to my DVD drive and going to the repair this pc option. 
All those attempts just seem to go around in circles. Anyone have any suggests?
I have made restore points every time I put new software on my computer but when I try to restore any of those it can not find them.
 I can get to the windows command prompt. (which defaults to the x: drive rather then c:??)
When I go to the c:\windows\system32\logfiles\srt\srttrail.txt file there are no obvious error messages in that, and the messages in there say that everything worked correctly.
There was a recent auto install of a Dell driver that I think happened.

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 all,

i tried loading the eventvwr.msc file from system32 folder directly as well as from the administrator tools, but i get:

"event log service is unavailable. verify that the service is running."

so i try to start the event log service, from the services.msc program;
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.
Error 3: The system cannot find the path specified."

how can i specify the path?
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:


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.

I am unable to install iTunes on Windows 7 on a Dell Optiplex 780. It always errors out as "apple mobile device service failed to start" and then installation always rolls back. One result told me to remove all apple software on my computer, but I do not have any apple software installed, it always fails to install. a few websites mentioned to make sure that my iPod is not plugged into the computer when installing, I unplugged it, it made no difference. and there were websites telling me to just manually start the service, but every time I try I get a "unable to start service. the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion" which pops up immediately. I also tried doing an SFC /scannow but it says "there are no integrity violations"

I am at a loss here. I even tried various alternatives to iTunes which all give errors of their own

Any ideas?

A:"apple mobile device service failed to start"

Hello mate now I don't have a an answer but my partner has a very similar problem on her laptop - an annoying message t say that Apple Push has stopped.

It did get a little better by running these
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2 by better I mean it got less frequent.

To be honest I am not an Apple fan and it seems to me it clutters everything up

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.

The UMDF reflector was unable to complete startup because the WUDFPf service was not found.  This service may be started later during boot, at which point Windows will attempt to start the device again.

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:
[email protected]) "which can be safely ignored" (re: KB979391).
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.

Hi, i am having trouble connecting my camera to my PC. It works perfectly on another PC running windows 8.1 pro the same as mine. I open device manager and my device is listed under other devices as canon digital camera, though it has an exclamation mark on it.

In the properties under the general tab I see this

"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
There are no compatible drivers for this device.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver."

I have tried un-installing the device, rebooting my machine and downloading the drivers from canon (it's an 1100D).

i have tired copying the files that show in the events tab on the other pc and manually install them but I get the following message "Windows encountered a Problem installing the driver for you device, MTP USB Device". Now something that seems weird to me is that my phone has also stopped working as an MTP device though there is no obvious driver issues with it.

I dug around quite a bit... I really hope this hasn't already been a thread...

"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."
​This message comes with slow start up and shut downs that occasionally freeze. Another strange symptom is that sometimes (about every other time I boot up the computer) it loses the shiny-black Vista theme. Not so much a concern of aesthetic and more a note of wonkiness.

The laptop was sluggish recently and I was doing some cleaning: defrags, registry cleaning, virus/spyware scans, etc. I... have a theory my sweep with CCleaner may have done something it really shouldn't have. I'm unsure what to do about this if it is true though, because although I didn't delete them, all my restore points are gone. I also recently changed the virtual memory size, if that is relevant.

Also uncertain of relevancy, but the worst of it (Service message) began while I was toying around between Pidgin and Trillian. Trillian crashed... something. There are so many event logs now that I'm not able to figure out what it was

Yesterday my wife's HP ENVY laptop began to have problems; screen blinking and slow typing.  The laptop is running Windows 8.  I ran MiniToolBox and found numerous errors for HpConnectedRemoteService.exe continually terminating and restarting.  After finding a post on this site about that service I uninstalled it.  Things seemed to be fine after uninstalling it, but then I found the Print Spooler Service wouldn't start.  I finally fixed it.

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

I hope this is the correct forum for this problem. The night of April 23 my wife's laptop running Window 8 began to experience problems with HP Connect Remote and then the Print Spooler would not start. HP recommended uninstalling HP Connect Remote, which I did. I found something to fix the Print Spooler; it appeared to be a problem with Print Spooler dependencies. I used a tool called MiniToolBox to look for other errors after the Print Spooler was fix, and it showed the following errors related to the HTTP Service, which will not start.

Error: (04/28/2015 07:34:12 AM) (Source: Service Control Manager) (User: )

I decided to look at Event Viewer for anything related to HTTP, and in Summary of Administrative Events I found that I have had the HttpEvent Event ID 15021 over 1900 times in the past week. The details from a error event are:

I recently had to install a new battery for my computer. After doing so I started having this problem and receiving the following Error from the "Service Control Manager" Event ID:7026   The following Boot-Start or System-Start driver(s)
failed to load: ppfd_vt_1_10_0_24    Param 1. The issues I am having are; Unable to completely "SHUT DOWN" unless I press the power button, this is after I have already selected the "shut down" option in the Start menu. Never
had to press the power button to power off my computer. Also, at "START-UP", I get as far as a black screen with a white flashing cursor in upper left-hand corner. At this point I am stuck, nothing takes me out of this state unless I press the "POWER"
button to shut-down. In order to start-up & Boot, I disconnect AC Adapter, remove battery, wait about 20 seconds, re-install battery, power adapter, and push power button. Now my computer is all good. Can anyone help me with this, I've researched for 2
weeks and am no where. Thanks for any help. My computer is quite old, 2010 Sept., but I'm hoping that I don't have to purchase a new one...(I'm a lil cheap) lol

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,

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.

Under Computer Management - Services. The Event Log is set to Automatic, but is not running. I try to start it, it gives the following error:
"Could not start the Event Log Service on Local Computer. Error 126: The specified module cannot be found". A similar error occurs with something called "Task Scheduler" in the same place - except this time the second part is "Error 1717: The interface is unknown".

Does anyone have any ideas re how to reinstall these components or otherwise fix this computer? I do not want to have to reinstall windows etc. As I mentioned tried... Read more

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.

A:Windows 7 firewall service will not start. Event ID 7024

I solved the problem! I followed the instructions here.

Has anyone seen this error. MS has a wonderful description, "an internal error has occurred". We rebooted this server on Friday and it worked until this morning (Monday) and is back to reporting failure to find the counters in remote Perfmon. The Performance Logs and Alerts service is set to manual and when I attempt to start it, I get the error and the event log is Event 2003 (0x7D23).

This is a production server that cannot just be rebooted regularly.

TIA for any help!

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

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.

Hi, symptoms I've experienced:
1. red X on the flag in sys tray says "Windows Security Center service can't be started"
2. all system restore points have been deleted and system protection has been disabled
3. IE browser hijack from google and yahoo search results; redirects to websites such as newgiftdepot.com, hark.com, consumers-research.com,
4. Microsoft Security Essentials will not load
Kaspersky scan results found Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Agent.fodw in two separate DLL files. It claims to have deleted them, however, the problem persists.
I've run scans with MBAM, Spybot, Microsoft Security Essentials (in safe mode) and none of these full system scans have any results.
Thanks in advance for your time and assistance on this issue! Let me know what additional info you need to process.

Being a technician, I always have my Lenovo laptop running Windows 7 Professional x64, working perfectly and smoothly.
One perfect day I installed Apple iTunes, rebooted my laptop and then I discovered that many services had stopped working:

fingerprint logon failed (so I switched to entering password);
very slow startup (up to 1 minute delay comparing with the time it normally consumes);
NO Internet access at all: nor wireless neither wired;
system message in notification area:
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.Click to expand...
Event Viewer (eventvwr.exe) could not start because of a problem with the service;
In Services snap-in there were two services in uncommon state:
Windows Event Log in Starting...
TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper in Starting...
both were holding infinitely.

Of cause, first of all I uninstalled Apple iTunes, Bonjour (Apple service), QuickTime and other software I recently install.

My computer recently started having issues........ here is what is going on:
* boot computer
* Windows boot screen displayed ~ 1 minute
* screen goes black. Can move mouse. Drive light constantly on, not blinking. ~ 5 minutes
* log in screen comes up / log in
* Desktop loads ~ 1 minute
> sometimes it loads with regular windows aero theme other times it loads with basic windows classic theme.
* Error message pop up "failed to connect to System event notification service"
* 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.

Here is what I have tried so far
*Turning off all start up programs / services
*Tested Memory - passed
*Hard Drive Self Test ---- # 1 - 7 fail / I am guessing that this is the source of the problem, however my computer does still work once everything is finally booted. So I don't know what to do with that information or if that test even matters.
* I have tried looking at the event viewer but every time it says that the event log service is unavailable.
> I try turning on Windows Event Log but that does not change anything
* tried "netsh winsock reset" in command prompt, based on a different thread that I found - it didn't work

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.

He was having BSOD 0x0000001e as soon he try to go a network items related place: share, network browsing, etc. But he does have access to Internet with the server. I found that the problem came from the lanmanserver service the can't start: error 998 Invalid access to memory location. I try to do a in-place repair with a valid installation DVD of Windows 7 Pro, but the installation failed as soon as the file was copied. The guy who install firstly his server deactivate system restore so I can't go back in time...
He got, on is "server", some software that he paid for (NovaBackup v.12, SolidWorks, Sage accounting, etc) but he didn't take a service plan so he can use them, but can't reinstall them.
Have you an idea ?

Hey, so I tried searching everywhere for the answer to this issue, I posted on the answer.microsoft.com forum and this indian guy said I had to do a clean boot, did that, and it didn't work, and they haven't responded again. But then yesterday I didn't get the error all day, then I turned off my computer, and it did it again earlier

So I'm not good with computers. Like at all. And my first problem was the "error 10016" and I looked it up for hours and did the component/registry editer thing to assign permission, and for me that was like I became a god lmao. Then I had a wifi issue, looked that up too. I have 2 identical wifis for some reason. suddenlink and then suddenlink-5g. and the 5g one hasn't been able to connect and says socket registries are missing, but that didn't bug me. My problem that I've come for help is randomly my computer (asus t100) will crash, not blue screen, just the screen goes grey and then crumbles to black. I turn it back on, half the time it freezes while on the asus logo and I have to force restart, then if It does load, the event log says
So I looked at the sticky and downloaded that scan thing, so I'll attach that here.

And all of this happened conveniently after I downloaded this risque file that I foolishly ran without antivirus. It was to get a product code for a game since I lost my product code a while ago. Dumb how they make you do that. But anyway, can someone please help with this? I'll love you forever
