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
-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???
