Source: Service control manager
Event ID: 7000
Description: the npkcryptservice failed to start due to the following error: the system cannot find the file specified.
I searched the internet and couldnt find any information on the npkcrypt.
Recently i noticed that the computer started up slowly around 7 to 8 mintues, and i could not close some programs that have froze, even from taskmanager. i would click end program and nothing would happen. Also as these programs freeze windows take a Very long time to shutdown, i waited it out once it took about 20-30 mintues, with many pop up endtask menus. Windows closes programs as i see icons on the taskbar disappearing, then my desktop closes but windows then hangs on my background and doesnt shut down When no program freezes, windows shutsdown normally and quickly.
I have also tried sfc /scannow and chkdsk /f /r but none of those helped
I dont know if npkcrypt error in event viewer is related to the problem I'm expriencing, any help would be greatly appreciated
