aritter81,

Please do the following to see if it points out the problem:

Downloading Farbar Service Scanner

Save to the Desktop
Make sure the following options are checked:
  • Internet Services
  • Windows Firewall
  • System Restore
  • Security Center
  • Windows Update
  • Windows Defender
Press: Scan


FSS creates a log, FSS.txt, on the Desktop.

Please provide the FSS.txt in your reply.

The error code is:
Code:
  ERROR_SERVICE_DISABLED                                        winerror.h
# The service cannot be started, either because it is
# disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated
# with it.
Is the service itself listed as disabled in the services.msc control panel? I would second the request for the log file that cottonball asked for.

Please explain, because you have liked to a 'download'. I don't want to download the content

arriter81,

Your best bet is to download the Farbar Service Scanner addressed in Post #2.

@Jacee,

The link goes to a batch file to fix the Windows Firewall:

Yes, I saw this earlier ... it's a direct download for something we don't know about

I also don't like those tick and pray downloads without having any knowledge about the download; where its from and what it does.
