Getting a failure on a startup service in performance test

January 27, 2014 at 07:13:56
Specs: Wiindows 7 Home Premium, 3.15 GHz/8 GB
I ran a Diagnostic test from the Control Panel for my system and came up with an "Error saying A Service is reported as having an unexpected error code." Further down in the report it showed a Failure for System Service Checks. It said Abnormal Terminated Service Check-- Failed. It does not call out which Service failed and I checked every service per a listing of Windows 7 default startup settings of Started Services and they all checked good. How can I locate which Service is the problem? I even download a program called Tweaking.com-Set Windows Services to Default Startup.exe and nothing changed. The Error still exists. Anyone have any ideas how to correct this error? Thanks

" I even download a program called Tweaking.com-Set Windows Services to Default"

Do all the steps, starting with the Malwarebytes scan.

At the final step, check/tick all the boxes.

I have no idea what steps you are talking about. I did run a complete Malwarebyte scan and had only one problem, which was not related.

When you open the program, you will see the Steps.

OK Thanks Johnw for your responses. Ran through the steps that I could and completed the tests. Nothing really changed. I've never had any luck in correcting Errors in the Event Log in the past. Some people have told me not to worry about them. I just don't understand why so many Errors are shown with no way to remove them or their cause. But, anyway Johnw, I appreciate your help. Thanks

I've spent many happy hours following up events for which there were no obvious symptoms in the running of the computer. I had about 50% success although no actual performance improvement was noted.

The above included errors with performance monitoring. With these there were methods available to stop "specific performance monitors" from working, although this was effectively hiding the problem. Since that experience I am tempted to believe that some are minor unresolved bugs, particularly in performance monitoring, that MS have never fixed, although I cannot prove this.

There are facilities to use your own filters so that unresolved reports are not shown, allowing you to concentrate on new ones which might matter more. Again though it is really just hiding them, albeit in a different way.

My approach now is to use Events when there has been a real issue. Sometimes doing so has helped diagnosis.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
