We're in the process of deploying Windows 7 to the our estate and we are starting to get an increasing number of devices getting the error 'Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service' when logging on.  A reboot (or two) clears the error and allows the user to logon but we're wondering if anyone out there has also come across this and if so, how to stop it from occurring!

Thanks.

Hi jcimarron.

Thanks for this fix.  We're in the process of testing to see if this resolves the issue.  Should be able to give an update later this week as to whether this has sorted the problem or not!
