What does "User OOBE Create Elevated Object Server" mean? (Windows 10 Pro 64 bit)

I get this message every time I log in. I also get error below, not sure if that's related. The cursor keeps showing a little spinner next to it. What can I do to fix this?

Hi Mark,

To give you information about OOBE, it means Out Of Box Experience. It's a part of the Windows setup process.

To isolate the issue further, please give us more details on the following:

  • Did you make any recent changes, updates or installation on your PC?
  • Can you check your time/date settings?
  • Are you using a Microsoft account or Local account?
  • Are you logged in as administrator?

We look forward to your response.

Hi John,

Thanks for asking. A few weeks ago I received the Windows 10 anniversary update and that caused my laptop to malfunction. I went through the "Reset PC" process and that seemed to have fixed the issue.  On the 18th I received another update (can it be 1607? I can't check anymore - large parts of the settings are unavailable), and since then I get the error above. 

I noticed this afternoon that the time was one hour behind, I have changed the clock since. It seems to stay correct now, after various restarts (I get a black screen about every hour or so, so I do lots of restarts at the moment).

I am using a Microsoft account.

I am logged in as an adminstrator. I have tried to create another user, but I can't.

Thanks for letting us know. Let's try the following steps to help us resolve the ongoing issue on your PC.

Follow the steps below:

Method 1: Run System File Checker (SFC).

  • Follow the steps on this link. We'll use this utility to scan corruptions and repair missing or corrupted system files.

Method 2: Unplug your external devices.

Sometimes, your PC’s external devices can be the cause of problems. Try unplugging all your devices, and then plugging them in one at a time.

If that didn't resolve the issue, continue to Method 3.

Method 3: Enter Safe Mode.

  • Restart your PC. When you reach the sign-in screen, hold the Shift key and select the Power button, and then select Restart.
  • After your PC restarts, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup settings > Restart. After your PC restarts, you should see a number of options. Press 5 or F5 for Safe Mode with networking.

Once your Pc is in Safe Mode, reinstall your display adapter driver:

  • Type device manager into the search box on the taskbar, and then select Device Manager.
  • Expand Display adapter.
  • Right-click the display adapter and select Uninstall > OK.
  • Restart your PC.

Shut down the RunOnce processes

There might be a problem with one or more RunOnce processes. If you're in Safe Mode and want to shut them down:

  • Right-click Start and select Task Manager.
  • Check both the Processes tab and Services tab—look for any instances of RunOnce32.exe or RunOnce.exe. If you find any that are running:
    In Processes, select the item, and select End task.
    In Services, right-click the item, and select Stop.
  • Restart your PC.

Let us know how it goes.

Recently had my computer reset to Factory default setting because I was having problems connecting to certain programs and apps. Can't seem to get past "User OOBE Create elevated object server" icon at bottom of screen when I attempt to set up a second account. Why can't the above "User OOBE, etc", be avoided?
