Code: 0x80070426 Description: The service has not been started RRS feed

  • Question

  • I run Windows Ultimate and didn't have problems until today.  When trying to validate, I got a Code 0x80070426 error.  Reading some of the forum posts, I tried a number of steps (listed below), but it didn't help.

    At a command prompt (run as system administrator), I tried:
        net start slvc

    What I got was:
        System error 3 has occured.

    Then I tried:
    sfc /scannow

    And the response was:
    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
