    Some time ago I opened a Guest account. As an Administrator I wanted t
    test this account now, howeve I am not able to access it: After clickin
    the Guest button Vista takes its time and after about a minute
    received the error message: "Windows could not connect to the sen
    service. Consult the Administrator." I have no idea what the sen
    service is. Thank you for your help

    The System Event Notification Service (SENS) is a microsoft servic
    which tracks various system events and notifies programs which need t
    know about those events. For instance, this service will track th
    disconnection of a device from a USB port and notify programs that nee
    to know about this, Windows itself as a start, and, say, your Nokia P
    Suite because, for example, you have just unplugged your Nokia cel
    phone

    Why do you want to access this account? Or is it just that you want t
    know if anything is wrong

    Thank you, Tom, for your reply.

    Well I wanted to test the Guest account, as I expect some guests. Have
    you any clue, how to get around this "sens" error message ?
    Thanks

    Can you follow these instructions

    1. Open up command promp
    2. Type services.ms
    3. Accept the UAC promp

    Sort the list alphabetically to make it easier. What does it say next t
    these services (in both the "Status" and the "Startup Type")

    COM+ Event Syste
    System Event Notifier Servic

    For example mine says (for SENS): Status=Started Startu
    Type=Automati
