IPSEC Services Failure

by Harv / September 29, 2004 7:41 PM PDT

Because of two failure reports noted in the Events Viewer and comment about a potential security hazard, I tried to re-start IPEC Services through Administrative Tools>Services by right clicking on IPSEC Services and then clicking "Start". It did NOT work and I received this reply: Could not start the IPSEC Services service on Local Computer. Error 10106. The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized. Is this something I should be concerned about? :|? I thought that maybe this failure has some bearing to the page viewing problems in this thread: http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6620-0.html?forumID=14&threadID=38663&messageID=453215

In the Events Viewer:
Source: Security, Event ID: 615,
File Name: MsAuditE.dll, IPSEC Services has experienced a critical failure and has shut down with code error. The network was aborted by the local system. Stopped IPSEC Services can be a potential security hazard to the machine. Please contact your machine Administrator to re-start the service.

Source: Sevice Control Manager, Event ID: 7023, File Name: netevent.dll, IPSEC Services
service terminated with the following error: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.

You should try to run System File Checker first. The called dll files is maybe corrupted/damaged.

Click Start>Run type CMD
Hit OK. Type SFC /SCANNOW in the command prompt.
You need your installation CD (XP) to continue.
Reboot the system when done.

I ran this same program once before, but was not sure what option to choose when asked "What do you want to do". None of the choices seem appropriate. Do I just click Exit and let the scan proceed?

Yes, click Exit if the blue screen (when you inserted the CD) will appear. Let the scan continue.

Donna, I didn't get a confirmation when the scan terminated. After rebooting, I attempted to start IPSEC Services without success. Now, I seem to be getting more page failure displays than before.

I tried the IEfix Bob suggested, but there were files the program asked for during the process, which were not mentioned in the directions. So, I probably didn't do the procedure correctly.

I've been spending the entire past two days trying to fix both problems, but to no avail. I even ran CHKDSK twice and the second time around it found and corrected quite a few errors, but this did not solve the problems.

Are you using IPSEC Services?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 30, 2004 12:08 AM PDT

First, light reading about IPSEC at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=818043

As a test, I stopped the IPSEC and found no degradation of Internet use. Maybe you can try setting the IPSEC service in services.msc to Manual?

In closing, the passages I read here about CHKDSK fixing this and IEFIX not completing is a little disturbing. You may be treating a symptom (IPSEC) and not the real problem.
