  1. Can anyone help me with a message I get in the bottom right corner, that says:
    "failed to connect to a windows service :windows could not connect to the system event notification service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. as an Administrator user, you can review the system event log for details about why the service didn't respond. Also if I turn the computer on in "normal mode" I can't click on anything. (by the way this computer is only 2 months old and not may hours on it @ all) I have VISTA of course. I can't even shut down properly. Any advice out there?

    Vista Rides Again.......

    This thread should be in "Windows OS". Follow this path; TS open boards> OS & Software > "Windows OS".

    This isn't a nag. There should a be higher number of viewers on this topic in that forum, and therefore more likelyhood of a solution to your problem.
