Interactive Services Detection Error


On bootup this morning i have been bombarded by a 'interactive services detection' dialog box - i've never heard of the program and am unsure what to do with it. Closing out the dialog box will make it disappear for roughly 10 or so mins, on which it will then return. I had a bluetooth detection warning or error this morning as well(i didn't see what it said before it went away).
 
I'm running win7 x64  on an alienware laptop - i ran mcaffee as well as some other security programs  and nothing popped up with an security issues - so i'm guessing that this is actually a windows program(although i have not heard of it). I went through google and a few of microsoft's sites and have yet to find any information regarding what the parent program is, what it does, how to disable it, etc.
 
I bought this laptop new, around 6 months ago and this is the first time i've ever encountered this particular error/dialog box - i did not install, download, or change any programs recently(within the past week, minimum). So i'm a little stumped as to why this is coming up now - with no changes to my system. So if anyone could provide some help/literature  on what this program, it's parent program, and anything connected to it does, is, etc and if this program is in actuality a virus or just a program, and to what i should do with it(delete, repair, etc) would be greatly appreciated.
 
>Win 7 x64
>Alienware laptop
>Most if not all drivers, updates, etc downloaded and applied
>Wireless router, bluetooth printer/fax(not connected to this laptop)

This Operation Requires An Interactive Window Station

The issue i am having is with installing a driver for my usb keyboard. The wizard finds the "generic usb hub" driver for my keyboard, but ends up with the error "this operation requires an interactive window station". I have seen some of the other forums with similar sounding issue and so i followed the steps of  doing a selective startup, and then doing a system restore, and finally just to be sure i uninstalled mcafee. However none of these steps have worked.

Drive Detection Failure

I tried to install the rc on a spare machine. It has an msi 6570 main-board which features a promise 20376 raid ide controller (according to the mainboard manual). Windows 7 rc couldn't find the western digital sata hard drive connected to the sata1 port. Is this just a matter of the rc not having a driver for this drive controller chip? I can try to locate an add-in sata card and bypass the on-board sata, but i'd rather not spend money on getting this working if i don't have to.

Wifi Usb Adapters No Network Detection

I brought these two usb adapters (tp link tl-wn722n and level one wua-0614) after i upgraded from vista to windows 7 ultimate 32 bit.
 
I downloaded the latest soft and drivers from the company web sites, where it say that it supports windows 7. The drivers are installed correctly, under device manager everything is o. K, but in both the usd adapters , they fail to detect any network signals, as if there are none hot spots or wifi routers around, although we have more than 10 wifi hot-spots around.

When i check the troubleshooter, it says that there is some problem in the driver, but under the driver option , there is no problem with the driver. I have a d-link g132 same usb wifi adapter that works fine. I tested these two adapters on 3 different windows 7 notebooks and at different locations but with the same results.

How To Remove Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Detection Driver ?

Ok i have a common problem with booting my pc under windows 7 64bit. It was all fine booting rapidly for the last month or so that i've had it installed. Then it started to freeze for several minutes (anything between 5 mins and about 10 mins) during boot time at the loading windows screen.

I have since then tried the various things to get it to boot normally again, including tings which should theoretically not affect it as they've all been there before this problem started and booting fine, this includes:

Looking at recent hardware changes such as hd's i've added. Changing the sata drives about (i've got 3) getting boot under msconfig to use the max cores (it's a quad core) & memory (4gb). Looking at the bootlog files (nothing leaps out other than i'm apparently trying to load a couple of the drivers twice - i've listed this mornings bootlog at the bottom of this message for reference). Recovering to a point about a month ago before the problems started in the hope that this will uninstall newer drivers that might be the problem, and this is where i noticed what i think might be the cause as this seems like the point it went wrong.

I had added a microsoft mouse and keyboard and the wu offered an optional update of:

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

After installing this i'm pretty certain that the boot slowed right down, so i've tried to uninstall it. Only i can't find a way of doing so. As when i do a system restore to a point prior to the driver installing and the problem occurring, it does not ditch the driver, just seems to keep it. I then uninstalled intellipoint for mouse and keyboard and re-installed standard ps2 mouse. At the same time i removed my microsoft wireless usb keyboard & mouse, all with no effect. I restored my system back to current again and i'm coming back to what i think the problem is which is the.

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

But with no obvious way or removing it, i can't confirm that. Other notable points: during the boot the hd access is constant so it's working like crazy. The keyboard will be unresponsive to things like capslock or numlock though for the first half of the wait the numlock light is on and for the second half of the wait the numlock light is off. I think my default setting is for numlock off.

Error - Active Directory Domain Services Not Active

Printer keeps going "offline" and i get "active directory domain services not active" error message. I have a 2 month old hp laptop with windows 7. I had a hp photosmart 2710 that kept going off line so i purchased a new printer, epson stylus nx510 and now it keeps going offline. When i do the troubleshooting, it says it is off network. Then i get a message that says "active directory domain services not active" when i try to fix it. I have searched for new driver updates and there are not any available. I think it is something in windows 7.

Services Settings

I have been trying to maximize the performance of my rig since i only have 4 gigs of ram and my ancient 1 year old mobo can hardly cut it with windows 7 (sarcasm intended). So, i have been fiddling with services but i occasionally mess things up and i end up painstakingly trying to reset those service back to their defaults, one at a time. How hard could it be for the services panel to have a ‘default" or "reset" button? So when people like myself (i’m not very smart) mess up a setting, we can simply click "reset" and the ole’, comfy, default services fix my screwup. Are there other ways to do this other than the aforementioned "by hand" method. Software? Utilities?

Terminal Services Default Printer Issue

In this message, the user is having trouble in windows 7 losing the default setting on a printer. Alan morris from microsoft chimes in noting that this is an "old" terminal services issue. I believe i am having that terminal services issue. I use remote desktop to my office workstation. I have my home printer's driver loaded on this office workstation so that i may print to my home printer when remotely connected to my office pc from home.

When i break that connection - usually by just closing the mstsc window - my office pc does not return the default setting to my typical default printer. Either my default setting is lost entirely (no setting at all) or the quickbooks pdf printer gets set as the default. Can anyone help? Especially since this might be an old issue related to terminal services?

Active Directory Domain Services Unavailable

I'm running windows 7 and after the last set of updates (4/15/2010) i can no longer access the print servers (version 2003). It gives me the message: active directory domain services unavailable. I have verified that dns is set up properly and have tried without the firewall active. I have also tried doing a system restore but that failed to fix the problem. I suspect a registry issue as i have the same problem regardless of what problem i try to print with.

I am also now having a problem with adobe and am getting the error message: unable to print: no pages were selected to print. I noticed that these patches are for patches. I am also unable to use the diagnostics program because it says i do not have the "download a file periodically that helps determine system problems" box " checked even though i do. My computer is a tool that is useless with out this ability.

Active Directory Domain Services Not Available At This Time

I know this has come up before but i am at my wits end and i seem to have tried everything. I have a dell studio laptop running windows 7 connected by wireless to a bt home hub. It is connected, i thought locally, to a hp laserjet 1100 printer. Recently, suddenly, it refused to print out of word 2007 (and excel 2007)and the error message above has been displayed. I have tried re-installing the printer, both as myself and as administrator. I have tried troubleshooting, but this reconnects as a network printer and nothing happens.

I am not expert enough  to start doing professional things. Is there a fix or will i have to but a new printer? The annoying thing is that my imac works fine, but for some things i need to communicate via windows.

Media Player Network Sharing Services Issue

Right after i go on line media player network services grabs 2gb of memory and 70 percent of the cpu usage, and the hard drive usage light comes on solid - this makes using the internet almost impossible since the clock is on for several minutes at a time - this computer is only used by two 'users' and only has a limited amount of stored music, no videos or tv shows - how can i shut off the service - or restrict it's ability to consume resources. This is an acer aspire 5532 with 3gb memory and a 160g hdd.

Services Explorer.exe Don't Work

I have windows 7 32 bit home edition installed, when i start my computer after logging in there is a message that says "c:windowssystem32system profile desktop not accessible, check user-name and password. " In the middle of the screen and my desktop is all black with no icons. In the lower right hand corner a bubble that says something along the lines of "could not connect to user profile service, this may prevent normal users from logging in" pops up as well. Anything i try to run either does not respond or says "the server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect.

Check user name and password.initially i did a clean boot and it brought back my desktop and allowed some programs to run (such as eclipse, skype, calculator and others) but i was still unable to get explorer.exe to run. However this no longer works although this functionality will come back seemingly randomly at times. The only thing i can think of to fix my computer is to re-install win 7 but i don't have a disk, i only have the download on my computer and last time my desktop came back i tried to run it but i got the "this service cannot be started" message. Safe mode works, there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with it other than the fact that it is safe mode and doesn't have full functionality.

I can't do a system restore as it seems i accidentally turned it off at some point and there are no restore points. I have tried sfc /scannow with no success. I tried looking for problems with registry keys but i haven't been able to find instructions on how to fix possible problems related to this in win 7 and seemingly similar problems in xp/vista don't seem to have the same structure for registry keys. Does anyone have any ideas as to what i can do? I'm at a loss and can't think of any thing else to try.

Local Network Service Memory Footprint And Services

I've just upgraded from windows xp to windows 7 and i'm examining what has been installed and trying to remove things which i dont use.

For example i have removed all drivers i dont use or need (like qos) from the network device.

Yet i have services like ssdp running - strangely enough i know exactly which devices i have on the network and the computer is directly attached to all of those and should in theory not need to have any discovery services running.

How can i manage which services are running and control what exactly ia being run on my computer network ?

I notice the local network service has a foot print of around 100mb regardless of wether i'm connected to the internet or not - i cannot understand why this service has such a large foot print. How do i control what is being run in this service, is there any way to stop the service from running and only start it if i need to use the network ?

I also wish to stop tcp/ip helper service from starting as there is no reason why anyone shold need echo requests from my computer, i could disable this by uninstalling the driver, is there anyway i can do this ?

As far as i understand i dont need ssdp, ntfs, tcp/iphelper, dtc, fdphost, grouppolicy client, homegroup provider, network list, nla, ftp server, windows connect wifi (i dont use wifi), windows media network sharing, .

Some of the other services look doubtful to me as well.

How can i reduce these services which i certainly dont need at the moment ?

Error - Request Could Not Be Performed Because Of An I/o Device Error

Wd passport essential 1tbi have the specified hd listed above. One day after i disconnected my hd from my ps3 and then connected to my toshiba satellite like i always do, it did not read it. It recognizes that there is a hd in device manager but in my computer it just shows up as the drive letter. I tried changing the drive letter and but in disk management even after changing the drive letter it still has an x by the drive and says it is unreadable.

It says that there is 937gbs of space when it is far less than that. When i went to explore device, it is "the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error" i reinstalled windows 7 and it still says the same thing even after the above steps. But the wd hd still reads on my ps3 and i can see the files just fine. Can someone please help me with this issue?

Error - 1612 - Feature Transfer Error

Error:- 1612 - feature transfer error - i cannot uninstall a specific driver that was installed from a cd. I want to uninstall a driver for redundant device. I can see it stuck there in my control panel/programs & features list. The driver software was bundled on the same cd as the application software that came with the device, which is a grabme video/audio capture stick by agk nordic, (who seem to have gone off the radar!). The application software is by arcsoft who are disclaiming on the driver software for the device.

Evidently the software was ill-suited for use with windows 7 and although patches were available they weren't effective. If i could have my time over again i would have left well alone, but as they say, fools rush in where angels fear to tread and you learn only by your mistakes! I have now purchased another device and different software which is configured correctly for windows 7 and it works!

In my control panel/programs & features list it is entitled, "usb audio/video driver" i have attempted to uninstall it from here and failed and also by reinserting the cd and that failed too.

When i use the control panel/programs & features method i get this information/message box: the installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it. C:windowsinstaller612f7. Msi

Using the setup cd i am given two options. The first is to repair and the second to remove. This option screen comes up because there is something related to it already on my system, having already installed it, (even though it doesn't work!).

Whether i choose either option my system generates similar information/message boxes. I have tried both methods of uninstallation with and without the device plugged in. Basically, they are telling me that: usb video/audio driver. Setup could not find a file on the specified path or disk. Please check that the proper disk is inserted or specify a new path. Unable to locate file

C:usersbrians~1appdatalocaltemp{f2a8acd9-1f63-4565-82db-3e07b9f7fe2e}usb videoaudio driver. Msi

This is the attempt through the control panel/programs & feature. The path is displayed slightly differently when the attempt is made using the setup cd in that it is: eaa60d5d-06d8-476f-8875-5d8d6d753ec1}

I click on retry and i get the same message, so i click on cancel and i get this message: feature transfer error. Error:- 1612. The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source disk exists and that you can access it. There is not a great deal i can do here apart from click on ok and abandon the exercise!
