Every time I start my computer and log in, an error message pops up when I get to my desktop:

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 administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond.


How can I fix this?

Type services.msc in the start search box. click on the icon, Windows services will open.
Scroll down to System Event Notification, right click and choose properties. In the dropdown box, set it to Automatic and start the service.

Seems to have worked, thanks.
