Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Same as the other events (events 513, 1059, 1000, 7000 and 10100) , I just go into the Windows Server 2016 event viewer and copy and post the errors.
For the Group Policy Results Wizard, I just try and fail to run the Group Policy Results Wizard.

I am trying to find the solution for the errors.

The questions are setting. Event 7000 may have a solution.
Wesley MillerComputer Network AnalystCommented:
It appears the Faulting module name: GPOAdmin.dll is causing the error.

Try clearing the cache from the profile you are executing it from:

Also can rebuild the OS Image and Verify System Files are OK:

At a Administrator Command Prompt  ( Search CMD , Right Click on Command Prompt  then run as Administrator )

Type: dism /online /cleanup-image  /restorehealth   ,
This will take a while to run as it scans for any corruption,  And repairs automatically any thing it finds wrong.

Type: sfc /scannow
This will verify all the OS System Files match versions what OS expects.

How do I clear the cache?

dism /online /cleanup-image  /restorehealth Completed
sfc /scannow  Completed.
Wesley MillerComputer Network AnalystCommented:
Did you try running the GPOAdmin after DISM and SFC?

To Clear cache , Just delete the contents of %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MMC
techcodrAuthor Commented:
I just created new folder MMCold and moved all the files to MMCold

Do I just open command prompt with administrator rights and enter the command GPOAdmin and return to run GPOAdmin?
Wesley MillerComputer Network AnalystCommented:
Repeat what you did when you got the error for GPOAdmin.

To Open MMC itself you search for MMC. then File , Add/Remove Snap in and then Load the Snap in you want to run.
techcodrAuthor Commented:
I do not know how the error for GPOAdmin occurred.

If I am in Windows Server 2008 then typing MMC in the search bar brings up MMC.exe. I do not give the same results in Windows Server 2016. Instead I get DFS Management as the best match.

Looking at %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MMC  I see dfsmgmt 9/2/2018. I deleted MMCold.

Looking at Event Viewer Application Windows log, the event has not shown since 8/25.

I am going to assume the fix you proposed worked.
