Domain controller freezes when an event subscription manager list is long in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Symptoms

Assume that a domain consists of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 servers and clients. Additionally, an event subscription manager list that is configured by using Group Policy Objects (GPOs) has more than 30 items. In this situation, a deadlock may occur in the thread pool for the Svchost.exe process that hosts network services. This forces other threads that are related to the Svchost.exe process to wait. Therefore, the domain controller freezes.

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.1.760 0.16xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    RTM

    GDR

    6.1.760 1.18xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    SP1

MUM, MANIFEST, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
