Cryptographic Services RRS feed

  • Question

  • IE 7.

    Downloads keeps prompting me to install this and other Security Downloads. But the installation won't proceed. Message says check that Cryptographic Services is running on this computer. I have checked and it is not listed in "Services".

    Note it is not just disabled it is not listed.

    How do I activate it, or install it.

  • Thanks for this. I will go through all the steps.


    My problem is that if I open Administrative Tool/Services I don't have Cryptographic Services listed. So I can't set the Startup Type to Automatic. Perhaps one of the steps will activate Cryptographic Services for me.

    Happy New Year

  • Tried all suggested remedies but in the end went for a re-install of Windows - that solved it.

    Thanks for suggestions.
