Level
Description

Comments
 
This event is also recorded (for any service) if a service is terminated using Task Manager (or similar tools like Process Explorer).
Service: courier-ybiqpsfhgqaporui - See EV100371 (VMware Knowledge Base 1021465) for information on how to troubleshoot this event.
- Service: Print Spooler - The following steps helped me to remove a driver, which was causing the issue:
1. Open regedit (e.g. click Start, key regedit and press Enter)
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers
3. Under this key, there will be the keys Version-2 and Version-3 (one or the other of these may be absent - not a problem)
4. The sub-keys under these contain the printer driver configuration information
5. Delete all the sub-keys inside Version-2 and Version-3, but not these keys themselves

The ME312052 article lists some other registry entries to delete, but this is not usually necessary.
1. Open a Command Prompt window
2. Key the commands:
net stop spooler
net start spooler

In my case this was affecting the GFI's MailEssentials AntiSpam Filter service. After trying everything listed here and in other sources (also disabled McAfee's GroupShield and removed McAfee's VirusScan) I've updated MailEssentials to the latest version and everything worked fine. If you have GFI's MailEssentials you should try to update before digging without result.
I have experienced this with the "World Wide Web Publishing Service" and "IIS Admin Service" after executing "IISReset /Stop".

This event is reported not by the failing service but by the Service Control Manager that simply reports the failure. As a consequence, this event does not provide too much help on identifying the problem. Look for other error message related to the service reported.

It can also be reported when a service is terminated by the user via "Task Manager" (as opposed through the "Services" applet).

- Service: IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service or Imapi Helper - these services may record event id 7034 when the ISO image CD Recording Wizard software is used (http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm) - however, the CD images are created properly so this event does not seem to have an impact.
If you are having this error in the printer spooler service, see “How to clean up printer drivers” for a good article.
- Service: OracleOraHome92TNSListener - See my comments on EventID 4 from source OracleOraHome92Agent.
- Service: OracleOraHome92ClientCache - In one case, this Event ID appeared on Windows 2003 SP1 computer on which the Oracle9i Client 9.2.0.1.0 was installed. It happened each time that I tried to start the OracleOraHome92ClientCache service (it had a Startup type of Manual). This also caused a Windows dialog box entitled "ONRSD.EXE - Application Error" to be displayed with the message:

The instruction at "0x7c8327f9" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".
Note: The service attempts to execute the program: C:\oracle\ora92\BIN\ONRSD.EXE.

This computer had been built from an image that was taken from another system and renamed using SYSPREP. The problem was fixed by downloading the latest version of the Oracle 9i Release 2 Database Server Patch Set 2 for Windows (currently for Windows NT/2000/XP and Windows 2003 (32-bit) this is version 9.2.0.1.0) and installing Oracle 9iR2 Patch Set 9.2.0.3.0. See “Oracle9i Database Downloads” for details.
