    • in reply to: DeviceSetupManager Error events after updates #2555705

      I’ve disabled Device Setup Manager service because it’s junk and doesn’t work. The device metadata service URLs are all broken, so I think this whole thing has been deprecated by Microsoft. All the warnings stopped after I did that. I was getting 40+ warnings every boot with this service.

      There was also an error called Event 2, Kernel Event-Tracing

      Session “Microsoft.Windows.Remediation” failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000035

      I solved that by uninstalling Windows Update Health Tools, and downloading the updated version of the health tools offline installer here:

      Once that’s run, go to Windows Update and check for updates. Restart and now the error is gone.

      I hope that helps others who are getting hundreds of warnings in their error logs and being told there is nothing that can be done about it.

      The event viewer is not always a good indicator that something is actually wrong. Sometimes issues are merely transitory and get fixed later.

      I hope that’s the case here. I’ve seen there are a lot of people with this issue going way back to 2019.

      Hi b,

      Thanks for your reply. No my internet connection is not set to metered, and I’m not using any tools to block windows updates. I have Windows Updates paused until Defcon changes, and the following Update Group Policies:

      Notify to download updates

      Set Automatic Update options

      Target release version for feature updates

      Target product version for feature updates

      That happened to me on my old ASUS gaming laptop. I found it was most likely an incompatible old driver. A clean install is probably your best solution in that case.

      My custom PC was purchased in August 2013, and I see many other users with computers that old. It still holds up and passes VR stress tests and other performance benchmarks. It’s a sturdy, reliable beast.
