Windows 7: Unable to start Service

27 Nov 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x32bit

Marcs Updater is written by Marc who also wrote the opendns's offical updater. Marcs Updater

Currently I only have a ADSL modem which doesn't support DNS update except for TZO and Dyndns.

I tried to start it from services windows not from startup.

What happens if you run without Marc's Updater? What is the exact performance result?

I would immediately install MS Security Essentials for a lightweight free AV solution which runs nearly invisibly, after updating and running (in your case) a full scan. Turn on the Windows Firewall. These will have no performance impact whatsoever, just protection.

I use Marcs updater to upadate my ip at OpenDNS | Internet Navigation And Security . I use opendns as my dns server.

Finally this has been resolved. I used Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily to completely uninstall Marcs updater. Removing all the registry entries. Then reinstalled the latest version of marcs updater and it's working fine now.
