This may be an issue related to the Customer Experience Improvement Program client (CEIP also known as SQM). If you are experiencing this try the fix outlined below. Any machine that’s currently not affected by this problem does not need this fix, nor will future installations or upgrades.
What happened? Microsoft deployed a configuration change which exposed this problem. The following instructions will remove those changes (registry keys) to prevent further CEIP related crashes.
1.Select and copy the following to your clipboard:
reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions /va /f
2.Click on "Start", then "All Programs", then "Accessories"
3.Right click on "Command Prompt", then click on "Run as administrator"
4.In the UAC prompt, verify that the program’s name is "Windows Command Processor" and then click "Yes"
5.Right click on the "Administrator: Command Prompt" window’s black area, then select "Paste"
6.Press "Enter", you should see “The operation completed successfully”.
7.If you see “ERROR: Access is denied”, please make sure you followed Step 3.
8.Close the "Administrator: Command Prompt window"
