Windows Services not starting (Event ID 7000/7009)

In case you have confronted the situation where some Windows Services are not starting after a computer restart (usually after your system installed some updates) this is probably because of an Event ID 7000/7009. This means that the Service received a timeout after trying to contact the Service Control Manager (SCM) for 30 seconds (the default value). The solution is to increase the default service timeout period:

Click the Start button, then click Run, type regedit, and click OK.

  1. In the Registry Editor, click the registry subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control.
  2. In the details pane, locate the ServicesPipeTimeout entry, right-click that entry and then select Modify.Note: If the ServicesPipeTimeout entry does not exist, you must create it by selecting New on the Edit menu, followed by the DWORD Value, then typing ServicesPipeTimeout, and clicking Enter.
  3. Click Decimal, enter the new timeout value in milliseconds (60000 means 1 minute), and then click OK.
  4. Restart the computer.
