thanks for your suggestion. it seems my issue has nothing to do with MSMQ as it is currently not enabled on my W10, as shown below.
MSMQ no enabledi did search for anything related to messaging using W10's Cortana, and found Messaging is On under Settings > Privacy > Messaging.
Privacy Settings

once Messaging has been disabled under Settings > Privacy, i no longer see the above error in the system event logs, but i do see some other service errors related as the service names are all ending with "_3eee6". see below the details.

Event 7009 - A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Sync Host_3eee6 service to connect.

Event 7009 - A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the User Data Storage_3eee6 service to connect.

Event 7031 - The User Data Access_3eee6 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

Messaging allows the user to send/receive text (SMS) messages from the PC and could be turned on by their actions or by the installation of Office 2010 or newer.
I'd go start that service again then, if the user does not use text messaging, go back to the settings for messaging and turn it off.
Reboot and see if it isn't better.

How about other services ending with "3eee6"? why "3eee6"?

BTW, i can't see any of these services in Services Manager, including "MessagingService_3eee6" (if it is for sending / receiving SMS, i guess at least there is a daemon for it , if not in a Windows service way).

They all interact with each other and ought to all shut up if you turn off the messaging.

According to what you posted, you disabled the service; you didn't go to the Privacy settings and turn off messaging which is what I think you need to do to resolve all of them.

My bad, sorry.....
According to this thread, the anniversary update partially fixes the errors; but, the surest fix is to change the startup type for the services which has to be done with regedit:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/event-7031-system-control-manager/995ff658-fa62-4535-a355-b5d19e0e947e?auth=1

"Okay solved the sync_host by disabling the service using regedit(see below), but still have the User data access, user data storage and contact data session errors.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\OneSyncSvc]

 change the value for "Start" to 4 (original is 2)
 This will disable the service and no more errors
 We can turn it back on when there is a fix! "

As to why yours are showing as 3eee6; its probably part of an algorithm Microsoft used to setup the services and we'll never know, for sure.

just tried, but never thought it could cause BSOD and failed to start up at all (frozen at the blue Windows logo and dot circle).

also failed to normal restart though Safe Mode is available, but that's it. tried to change the registry value from 4 back to 2, but surprisingly noticed REGEDIT is not available. :(

the particular MessagingService_3eee6 error/event was gone once disabled the Messaging under Settings > Privacy. but other annoying "3eee6" family messages keep showing in system event logs.

the suggested methods including to disable MSMQ and OneDrive services were inapplicable or ineffective, though i do appreciate the comments and suggestions of the above experts.

i will open a new question to address the other "3eee6" or similar error messages.
