Been wondering why these dang system errors keep popping up: Event Type: Error Event Source: Service Control Manager Event Category: None Event ID: 7006 Date: 4/28/2009 Time: 9:21:36 AM User: N/A Computer: So And So Description: The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for Type with the following error: Access is denied. But, I endeavored to discover why: You see, I like to uninstall then reinstall my NIC drivers after I install ESS (old versions, new version, dunt matter). Reason being that I like to see the little Internet Connection Icon in the tool tray. For some reason, ESS always kept me from seeing it after ESS was installed. After I uninstalled then reinstalled the NIC drivers I would have to go to Network Connections to configure for the tooltray Icon. After checking the box I would hit OK and the snapshot above is what transpires. I actually repeated going into the Internet Properties several times, clicking OK and would continue to get the Windows Logo warning regardless if I made any config changes or not. Afterwards (from doing what I just described above) I went to the Event/System logs and saw all these: .........everytime I did the Internet Properties + OK . . . . .
