Application Event Viewer Error: WTS Event ID 0

I uninstalled SharePoint and began getting this error every two or three minutes in the Application Event Viewer:

"WTS event id 0

Service cannot be started. System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: The value of the property 'value' cannot be parsed. The error is: Some or all identity references could not be translated. (C:\Program Files\Windows Identity Foundation\v3.5\c2wtshost.exe.Config line 17)..."

The error goes on for several more paragraphs. If you need the rest of the error, I will post it.

I had been getting "Event 5586 (SharePoint Foundation) of severity 'Error' occurred xx more time(s) and was suppressed in the event log" many times in a day. Showing an event id 2159 and a task category 59.  We didn't need SharePoint installed so I uninstalled it. The WTS error began soon thereafter.

Thanks,

What version of SharePoint you had installed? May be some traces are still left you can use the OFFSCRUB to completely uninstall Office related products.

Thanks Harish.

I had SharePoint 2010. I will look into OFFSCRUB. Thanks for the pointer.

Hello again Harish,

I did some research and found that OFFSCRUB is a client side tool. There is talk of a server side tool but I could not find any links to it.

In the meantime, I stopped the Claims to Windows Token Service service and the event log errors have stopped. I will have to look into the Claims to Windows Token Service service to see if other programs need it operational.

Thanks

Hi,

It is just a VB script, it has options to uninstall Server & client and side components.
For example when running the script you should provide SERVER as input, hence it will remove any Office server(SharePoint) components.

This service should have got uninstalled when you removed it from the program and features. May be you can try these steps,
