Hello everyone, first time posting here. Lately, I've been getting flooded by these errors in my logs. I'm not tech savvy so a great chunk of what's about to follow might come from ignorance on my part. The current Windows 7 I'm running comes from a recent reinstall, and I don't remember having these errors before the reformat. There are, however, 2 major things I'm doing differently from the last time - first is I'm now using TinyWall to block all traffic unless I allow them (previously, the firewall was at the default allow all outgoing setting), and second, I've disabled Server and Workstation on the services.msc control panel.
The PerfNet errors (id 2002 and 2004) seem to be related the disabled Server and Workstation, but the solutions I got from googling about it involves restarting the Server service (id 2004). I've disabled it on purpose, so what I'd like to know is whether there is a switch or setting somewhere that I can toggle to make PerfNet not report these 2 specific errors. I can't say I know much about PerfNet, but if it's keeping an eye on other errors besides these 2, I'd like to not disable PerfNet completely. Event id 2002 says "Unable to open the Redirector service performance object", I have no idea what that is, but I'm hoping it has something to do with Workstation service being disabled so that maybe I can deal with it in a similar manner. I would really prefer keeping Server and Workstation disabled unless these errors are serious matters that require me to do otherwise.
The Schannel errors are event id 36876 and 36888. My best guesses are it may have something to do with the new firewall setting, or it may have something to do with SSL2,SSL3, and TLS1 boxes being unchecked on my internet options panel. My first response to the issue was to download and install the latest root certificates from Microsoft, but I still get both errors. I'd like to know if either of these are serious errors that require more looking into, rather than my current planned course of action which is disable reporting of this error. If they are serious errors, then I'd like to know what to do next so I can fix it, but if they're not, I'd like to know how to disable the error from going into the log.
Based on how the computer feels during daily usage, none of these errors seem to impact my computer's usefulness. If anything, my bigger concern is my event log being swamped with too many reds from these things that something actually important might get buried outside of my notice.
I apologize for the huge wall of text, and thanks in advance for taking the time to read it, and hopefully I can fix them with the help of this community.
