Some services occasionally do not start if you repeatedly restart a computer that runs Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008

Support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) ends on July 12, 2011. To continue receiving security updates for Windows, make sure you're running Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (SP2). For more information, refer to this Microsoft web page: Support is ending for some versions of Windows.

Symptoms

You have a computer that runs Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008. If you repeatedly restart the computer, some services occasionally do not start. For example, the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service and the DHCP Client service may not start. In this case, the following events are logged in the System log.

Log entry 1Log entry 2These events indicate that the Ancillary Function Driver for Winsock (AFD) driver did not start. However, if you run the MsInfo32 program, and you check the System Drivers information under the Software Environment section, you find that the AFD driver is actually running.

Also, the following event log entries are sometimes recorded.


Note This problem is not specific to the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service or the AFD driver or mountmgr driver.

Cause

This problem occurs because the Services.exe program checks the driver status of services incorrectly.
