Windows 10 1903 (but this should be affecting all Windows versions), on opening Devices and Printers, a clock icon is overlaying devices icons ('Device setup in progress') and Event ID 131 error is logged in Event logs with the message from the title. I have noticed this yesterday when I updated nVidia drivers and checked the logs afterwards. There are also ID 201 warnings complaining that connection to the WMIS (Windows Metadata Internet Services) cannot be established. I have tracked the issue to the folowing registry key - Code: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Device Metadata\DeviceMetaDataServiceURL with a value of Code: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=252669&clcid=0x409 The URL redirects to - Code: https://devicemetadataservice.trafficmanager.net/dms/metadata.svc however this URL points to a site with a bad certificate - On proceeding, I get 404 - When I inspect the root of the site, I can see that something indeed has been changed there yesterday - When I try to refresh Devices, the error is logged all over again. Can anyone confirm this behavior of devices in 'Devices and Printers' please? ........ EDIT: I have just found an identical report here.
