Windows could not connect to The System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond
Had this for a month or two, at first I worked out to just wait on my log in screen until my computer sounded like it wasn't doing anything (which could take about 20 minutes to half an hour in total). That seemed to work. Then I also updated my graphics card driver, which seemed to eradicate the problem....
I have searched everything, tried everything and nothings working and I can't change the theme (because windows can't connect to the service thingy), and I have to restart my audio thingybobs so I can listen to my music if I so want... I would if I wasn't so damn annoyed at the main problem. The main thing people suggest on the internet is to go into command prompt and do a winsock reset... it doesn't work and if anything it just made shutting down take forever too (I cooked my whole dinner whilst I was waiting for it to shut down and get back to the log in screen).The next thing they suggest is to go to the services.msc thing, finding the event log notifier thing and setting that to manual. Which I did... Still to no avail.And waiting for the computer to stop making noises doesn't work either before logging on. Any one got any ideas? Or know a good site to go? I would be very grateful to anyone who can help me.
