What is the role of Certificate Service?
My error details was "The system cannot find the file specified". I got this event after doing a system state restore. Upon rebooting, Certificate Services tried to restore its database when in fact it has already been restored. The solution was to delete the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CertSvc\Restore in Progress.
See ME190059, ME241060, and ME242854 for information on this error.
