System Log Errors & Windows Services 'hanging' at start-up

For 2 weeks I have been trying to stabilize my HP TouchSmart 520 PC, after upgrading to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The fundamental problem is that I can't seem to get a good, clean reboot without going through a lot of gyrations and restarts.  Here are the symptoms:

  • When I boot-up my system I often get 2 -3 services which often consume 100% of the CPU:
    • Service Host: Local Service (Network Restricted) ------------ svchost.exe
    • WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service-----------svchost.exe
    • Microsoft Office Click-to-Run Client -------OfficeC2RClient.exe
  • When I boot-up and see any one of these services using > 30% CPU Utilization - Microsoft edge will open, but will not function.The Windows
  • Process Activation Service (WAS), is generating errors which are recorded in this log.

"The WAS service was terminated with the following error: The data is invalid." (Event ID: 7023).

Several services depend on the WAS service. The next error in the system log reads, "The NetTcpActivator service depends on the WAS service which failed to start because of the following error: The data is invalid." (Event ID: 7001)

Next System Log error message,  "The NetPipeActivator service depends on the WAS service which failed to start because of the following error: The data is invalid." (Event ID: 7001)

Next System Log error message,  "The W3SVC service depends on the WAS service which failed to start because of the following error: The data is invalid." (Event ID: 7001)

Next System Log error message,  "The NetMsmqActivator service depends on the WAS service which failed to start because of the following error: The data is invalid." (Event  ID: 7001)

 "The system firmware has changed the processor's memory type range registers (MTRRs) across a sleep state transition (S4). This can result in reduced resume performance." (Event 137)

There are other unpredictable issues such as apps hanging, not opening, sluggish performance, etc.

I have run the System File Checker and the DSIM program, I have run 'repair installs'. I have disabled all start-up services using the Task Manager.  Some things make marginal improvement, but I have yet to stumble across the ultimate fix. 

Any advice? anyone?

Hello,

At this point, we recommend performing an in-place repair using the Windows 10 ISO file. You check the guidelines posted by Andre Da Costa on this Wiki Article.

"If your Windows 10 installation is demonstrating unusual behavior such as built in apps not working or launching, you can perform a repair upgrade to fix the problem. A repair upgrade is the process of installing Windows 10 over the existing installation of Windows 10 on your hard disk, using your installation DVD or ISO file. Performing this can repair broken operating system files while preserving your personal files, settings and installed applications."

Update us on the outcome.

Regards.
