Windows 7: services start/stop or change from autostart to demand start


24 Jul 2011   #1

win 7 professional x64
 
 

My brand new Dell laptop keeps losing its active window focus. I have tried to pinpoint the problem to a service or startup and did not find anything specific.
I am now checking the System logs and I see things like :
  • The Windows Modules Installer Service changes every couple of seconds its start mode from demand to auto and from auto to demand. There are almost 20 changes from one state to the other in 2 minutes.
  • The Computer browser service starts/stops several times in a few minutes.
  • The Multimedia Class Scheduler service starts/stops every 3 or 4 minutes.
Is this normal ? How do I troubleshoot this ?



Following with my previous post, here is from my log just a couple of minutes ago

Code:

Each one of this is the Multimedia Class Scheduler service that enters the stopped state and the following is the same service entering the running state. Here is the full text paste

You might want to check in Event Viewer for some clues, but as it's a brand new computer I think you need to contact Dell Support as well.

If you want more information on any particular event, just select the Details tab.

All I can suggest is that you check. I agree that some of the information is not very forthcoming although some is better depending which event you're looking at.

If you see a recurring Event ID you could check on Google for further information e.g. boot information Event ID's are in the 100-110 range.
