Hi.

I've been having some trouble with my computer recently and I traced it back to my services. perfmon /report was indicating that around 9-11 services were being abnormally stopped at start up. So, I used this tutorial to help restore MOST of my services. I still have some problems with two of them.

My computer won't let me completely merge the Diagnostic System Host regedit because it's apparently in "use" by the system. However, the service is stopped, and it has no dependencies so I don't see how that works.

I can't start nor stop the service either - in an elevated command prompt, I get a System Error 5, Access is denied.

The second service that is behaving strangely is Superfetch. I restored it, but it still stops abnormally.

What can I do to fix this?

Hello SDX, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you already tried doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you had this issue to see if it may be able to help?

Yep. I tried about 5 different system restores, and all of them were plagued by the same problem.

Edit: sfc /scannow indicated that there were no integrity errors as well (if that helps)

The Diagnostic System Host service is set to "Manual" by default, so you don't need to have it started or automatic.

Sorry, I didn't want to start it. I wanted to stop the service so I could edit its registry.

You should be able to stop the Diagnostic System Host service by typing the command below in an elevated command prompt.

net stop WdiSystemHost

To start it again when ready, use the command below.

net start WdiSystemHost

Well, I tried that, and it didn't really help too much because I got the same error.

I have another question: what would cause desktop window manager session manager to crash? That's my main problem - this service is stopping and crashing abnormally and when it crashes, I lose my network connection as well.

There could be a number of causes. If you like, you could try troubleshooting with a clean startup if it's not crashing while in a clean startup. This will hopefully ID the culprit.

Clean boot crashed the service as well

Edit: I think there's a problem with my remote procedure call because that is the one factor that connects a bunch of my crashes. Would restoring it using the file from this thread fix it?
