Solved Failed to connect to a windows service

June 9, 2016 at 23:15:36
Specs: Windows 7 , 2.5 GB
Since yesterday getting the following message after opening the Computer. "Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on the system. As an Administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."

For this I couldn't connect internet as the Networking System is not working.

Thanks phil22 for the reply. But I do not find any suggestion in the link given by you. However, let me further clarify that I'm having Windows 7 32 bit.

I can look at these logs for clues.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.

If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt)
The logs are large, upload them using Zippy ( No account/registration needed ) or upload to a site of your choosing. Give us the links please.

Before you start digging for malware, I recommend opening an administrator command prompt, and running SFC /SCANNOW

I shall go through the errors one by one, test after each change & let me know if you are still getting the error.

Temporarily Disable your Anti-virus
To do this, follow these steps:

Open Quick Heal Antivirus and click External Drives & Devices.
Turn OFF Autorun Protection and click Back to Dashboard to confirm.
Make sure Autorun Protection is disabled and then close the Quick Heal AntiVirus window.
Reboot the computer & test.

If the above fails, here is the next step.

"Since yesterday getting the following message after opening the Computer"
Boot into Safe mode with Command prompt & do a System Restore.

Applies To: The System Restore command is the same in all versions of Windows so these instructions apply equally to Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

@ Johnw - I'm here to give you trouble again. Since today I'm facing to some extent similar situation - it shows "connected" but in reality when I open my Browser it shows "failed to connect server".

P.S. Since your last suggestion, I have upgraded my PC to Windows 10.

@ Johnw - Thanks for cooperation. I have tried to do so earlier before referring the issue before you. But I couldn't proceed further as Windows 10 failed to connect with internet. However, in the same PC I have dual boot system, i.e. Windows and Linux Ubuntu with separate Hard Disk. There is no problem of net connection so far Ubuntu is concerned. Is there any way out? Please suggest.

Googling DG965SS motherboard for W10 drivers, reveals Intel do not have any.

Try the W7 drivers that are on the Motherboard CD that came with the comp.

Yeah, that might be for the best.

For the record, I was going to suggest resetting winsock again, and if things started working, I would have recommended updating / removing Quick Heal.
