Event ID 200 201 202 reappear no matter solution applied

I had this question after viewing Warnings 200, 201, 202, and error 131 at startup.

After months of troubleshooting and changing settings, nothing seems to work. I still get Event ID warnings 200 201 202 on startup. I managed to get rid of them in V1809, but when I update to 1903 and ran scannow, as I did in 1803 to fix the issues, it reported no corruption. As I said, I've tried everything - resetting Group policy, turning off auto driver updates etc.

The warnings are DeviceSetup warnings, in this order: 202: The Network List Manager reports no connectivity to the internet.; 200: A connection to the Windows Update service could not be established, then finally 201: A connection to the Windows Metadata and Internet Services (WMIS) could not be established.

Yes, the computer running normally and I have no trouble downloading updates.

Thanks for reconsidering this nagging issue.

as per the previous answer.. you could spend a lot of time to remove these errors or just live with them.

you could try setting the services involved to automatic (delayed startup) or manual and in task scheduler start these services.


You're right, David. Those warnings don't seem to presage trouble ahead. If we have to live with a river of distributive com warnings, what's a couple more.
