    I have 8 servers in a web farm (Windows 2000 and 2003) and every
    morning after the nightly
    reboot I will get the error message below:


    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Service Control Manager
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 7022
    Date: 12/7/2005
    Time: 2:55:21 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: SERVERNAME
    Description:
    The Automatic Updates service hung on starting.


    For more information, see Help and Support Center at

    The order that the services are starting is this:


    Event Log, various compaq drivers, SNMP, NIC Agents, Server Agents
    (HP), Storage Agents (HP), Fondation Agents (HP)...then I get the
    above. The event in the log immediately following is this:


    Event Type: Information
    Event Source: Application Popup
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 26
    Date: 12/7/2005
    Time: 2:55:21 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: SERVERNAME
    Description:

    driver failed during system startup. Use Event Viewer to examine the
    event log for details.

    Like I said there is no problem running Windows Updates. The service
    actually does start. Its just annoying because its showing up in MOM
    every day. Any ideas on how to get rid of this error? Thank you!!

  2. ....

    Are there any entries in the WindowsUpdate.log at the same time?
    Perhaps there are better clues there?
