Haven't really dug into this a great deal>
I have a Vista HOME Premium that is missing the SSTSVC and causing the BSOD. In event logs I see error 7001 and 7036 saying the service is missing. I see no reference to the service.
SSTSVC is the secure socket tunnel service. If I go into Services.MSC the applet neither has the ability to stop/start or to edit the service applet properties. It also says the service is missing.
I also tried to open up Administrative tools in Control pannel and that also came up with an error that it is missing as well.
SSTSVC is a part of Service pack 1
Administrator tools might be upgraded in SP1. It is suppost to be located in C:\programdata\microsoft\windows\start menu and that WINDOWS folder with all sub files and folders are missing.
What do you think? ...a bad Service pack download?
