This dumb, uninformative, repetitive Event ID has been my most persistent,
random, & most often logged Event Viewer error message since I clean
installed Vista Ultimate 64-bit from a retail box the most part of a year
ago. It has also been the primary cause for my biggest disappointment with
Vista & strong evidence of Vista's failure as a reliable OS (not to say that
this is the only evidence for such failure) .
My unrelenting search for relief has been just as persistent & has proven
totally unsuccessful to date. However, my search has still been a learning
experience. What have I learned? The following is not a complete list:
1. Windows users have been experiencing the same frustration (same issue)
for several years going back to earlier Windows Op Systems.
2. This event has been reported by Windows users on a variety of platforms,
PC brand models, and both Vista 64 & 32 bit versions.
3. No one cause has been identified as the trigger for this event - nor have
I found that any effective remedy/work-around has ever been posted either on
tech web sites, Microsoft newsgroups, or the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
4. Vista is overloaded with diagnostic Services (part of Administrative
Tools) designed to monitor, safeguard, & insure Vista's reliability - but
which are so inter-dependent, complex, and inadequately documented - that my
guesses are that:
(A) Vista's Services are a cause of many of Vista's unexplained system
(B) Microsoft engineers have succeeded in faking out both users and
themselves in how to understand, manage, and coordinate these 'Services' so
they fulfill their safeguarding functions instead of bringing Vista down.
(C) Making these Services accessible to users who would not have a clue how
to benefit by changing any of their properties & settings was a huge
(D) Microsoft never adequately beta tested these Services before releasing
an oversold, hyped Vista to market, to anxious OEM vendors, and to
Proof to support my guesses? The omission of any Vista 'Help' topics to
document - for the average or even experienced user - a crash proof way to
change the properties, disable, or return all or individual Services back to
their default values. Adding to such 'proof,' the same omission is evident
on official Microsoft Support web sites. Lastly, the proof resides in
Vista's sad record of reliability.
Sorry - I do not want to harangue this issue. I strongly desire replies to
this post to prove me and my guesses and assertions - dead wrong.
I'd prefer to save/recover my investment in Vista Ultimate and enable Vista
to serve reliably for yet a few more years instead of the few miserable
months during which it has proven to be such a very bad buy.
Anyone - got solutions? Thanks.
