One of my 2 laptops always appears offline in WHS. No backups are being made. The problem I am having is exactly like the original poster in this thread:
I have tried all of the recommendations in that thread and still haven't found a solution. That thread has been locked with no solution posted. My client is running Win 7 X86, and also is running IIS 7 (I use it for a development machine for ASP .Net web projects). I have been trying to resolve this for a month with no luck! Thanks for your help!

I found in the Event Viewer that this message is showing up a lot:
Faulting application name: SMSvcHost.exe, version: 4.0.30319.1, time stamp: 0x4ba1f4ec
Faulting module name: CESpy.dll, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x4d389c2b
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00006b49
Faulting process id: 0x1944
Faulting application start time: 0x01cc459137bb4f9c
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\SMSvcHost.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\CESpy.dll
Report Id: 76a02098-b184-11e0-b5db-00163666a45e
Could this be causing my problem? Thanks for any insight!

I found the program that contains "CESpy.dll" listed above and am going to remove it. I'll post back with an update!

I certainly don't have that file on my system! An Internet search revealed this:
"cespy dll is a rogue anti-spyware program. This program is advertised through misleading and deceptive web sites that pretend to be malware scanners that find infections on your computer. They do this to scare you into thinking your infected, even though a web site can't possibly know this, in the hopes that you will download and install the cespy dll program. If you decide to install it, the program will scan your computer and come back with a list of security risks found on your computer that you cannot remove unless you first purchase a license of the software. It is important to remember that these people are preying on your fear and for the most part you do not have the infection they say you do."

Thanks, Philip! I found the program that uses that dll (Covenant Eyes, an online filtering program), which I am going to uninstall. I'll post back if it solved my original problem or not.
