I have a machine that gets an error daily.  It is:

HTTP service failed to start due to the following error:
Not enough storage is available to process this command.

After this error happens the SSDP discovery service fails which depends on the HTTP service.

The computer has not had issues until today it blue screened and said a defrag was needed.  After the reboot the error when away and it is working.  I am currently running a defrag.  Can someone help with the errors??

What did you install last and how full in your OS drive?

Only updates were installed.  That was on Friday evening.  The hard drive has over 14 Gigs of data free.

if you use Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing make sure make the "allow others to modify this connection" feature, enable UPnP.
Also make sure your UPnP "Universal Plug and Play Device Host" service is running both are needed to work.

After a lengthy amount of time, I have noticed that after the defrag was run, this issue never came up again.  There are no issues whatsoever now.  Thanks.
