Vista "System Event Notification"
My apologies that I think I am in the wrong area, but I can not find a Vista
area to post this to. This seems close because many people believe this
error is a result of a Microsoft Windows Update to Vista, and there are
apparently huge numbers of people with this problem, but no solution that I
can find. If you have a suggestion of a better spot to post this, let me
know.

In any case, you can find dozens of conversations like this one:

For some unknown reason, Vista's "System Event Notification" service just
starts failing. With that, no web traffic will work, and the computer
becomes useless. I ran the "sfc /scannow" utility, and that did not fix it.
I tried running a system restore, but it does not work (likely due to the
same problem).

Question 1: How do I fix this?
Question 2: What is causing this?

Thank you!

Re: Vista "System Event Notification"
The thread you reference was from a Vista-specific MS newsgroup:
http://groups.google.com/group/micro...91831880e48449

Also see this related conversation
http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/sho...postid=1408008

Since both threads date from over a year ago, I very much doubt an update
for Vista has anything to do with the problems.

Vista-specific newsgroups include:

microsoft.public.windows.vista.file_management
