Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
I wish to help a friend to resolve an error message which appears on the desktop each time Windows 7 SP1 loads. The contents of the error reads as follows: There is a window with a title of Failed to connect to a windows service. The body of the window indicates that 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. As a follow up to this error message, I did notice the desktop environment takes a while to load up in addition to never being able to log off or shut down which results in a required manual shutdown using the power button. I think there might be connection here, but, not entirely sure about this.
On a side note, here is some brief detailed information about this laptop just in case it is needed. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron (Model: N4010). The operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. If more information is needed, please feel free to let me know and it will be furnished right away.
