Windows 7: Failed to connect to Windows Services

Failed to connect to Windows Services

Every time I start up Windows and log in, it keeps telling me that it failed to connect to Windows Services. I tried multiple solutions but none of them worked (solutions I tried: resetting winsock, clean boot, and safe mode) I also tried to log in on another account and I got a error saying it cannot connect to Group Server Policy. This error happened after I got a BSOD, when I didn't activated windows yet. After the BSOD I started up Windows logged in and my desktop was gone, and it says I do not have a genuine Windows, so I activated Windows and ever since I got this problem.

The problem could be inferior Factory Preinstalled Win7 with all of the bloatware and duplicate utiltiies which have better versions built into Win7. These throttle Win7 from its native performance and can cause problems.

That's why most tech enthusiasts will not run such an install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Everything is provided in the blue link tutorial.

At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

If this doesn't resolve performance problems, work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7. If you can't start Win7 or it won't stay running then use these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

Your copy of Windows seems to be short of some features. Please check "Control Panel->All Control Panel Items->Programs and Features->Turn Windows features On or Off".

Also post a screenshot of your services list (Windows Key+R, then type "services.msc" without the quotes) in here.

I am going to try a fresh install and see if anything still pops up.

If you'll use only the tools and methods given in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 then you'll get and keep a perfect install for as long as you do.
