What is the role of ESENT?
This can be related to a corrupted systems update database as previously mentioned. It also can mean that the systems update database was blocked from being updated because an antivirus tool such as Forefront is blocking the system from writing to the file.
- Error: -1032 - See ME253111.

I have found this to be due to a disk space issue on the system partition. There was not enough free space on the system partition for ESENT, which needed about 200MB to write a “tmp.edb” file.
In my case, this problem appeared when someone had removed the System group from the permissions on drive “C:”. When I put the group back with Full Control rights on all the local hard drives, the problem went away.
I used the same resolution as described in ME278316 at support.microsoft.com for Event ID''s 454, 412 ESENT Logging/Recovery. Event ID 439 relates to a corrupt security database file which can be rebuilt using the Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in in MMC."
This event can also indicate very low disk space (under a few mb).
