Those errors started coming back for me today. Was great for a while, but its baaaack...
Event 201 A connection to the Windows Metadata and Internet Services (WMIS) could not be established
May be happening on shutdown this time though. I need to test it
after browsing through my event log after some unexpected freeze ups it would seem this error is still hopping around, the temp fix to changed the registry entry to http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc solved this error problem but now i am introduced with a new item that appeared after making this change, when typing cmd into the start menu i am greeted with something called Jack Command, i need the command prompt to possibly resolve a different error occurring in the even log concerning - Unable to start a DCOM Server: Microsoft.XboxApp.AppXsw8tt30ns5jahngp2m8d833e3fk9tsa4.mca
instead of the usual cmd where you can right click for an elevated command prompt. as anyone else seen this? is this new? now that the system is able to communicate with the update servers correctly.
i have scanned my pc for infections using the following scanners -
Emsisoft Emergency Kit
none of these scans returned any infections ( i am a very careful and deliberate about my pc's security )
I can't reproduce that here after applying the same fix. For me it works. Fixed.
You are right clicking on the cmd icon and selecting "Run as Administrator?" - it should say "C:\WINDOWS\system32>"
It looks like a user name? Who holds admin? What user is logged on? I've never heard of "Jack.." Apart from my Labrador he's called Jack.
Maybe something else caused this??
I would run a sfc /scannow and maybe a DISM scan if you can't find the cause, be it program or corruption.
well i found the source of the "JACK command' prompt ... turns out to be a virtual audio cable i had installed called JACK audio, it replaced the normal command prompt with a JACK command prompt, after uninstallation it was returned to normal. so this was no actual malware or system error, i just have not run a command prompt since installing JACK, which was only a few days ago.
After finding Event Viewer, I see that I, too have this problem occurring, and it causes my internet to stop, while also freezing the system, forcing a hard re-start.
This is apparently an issue that was in Win8, and is still a problem? Unbelieveable. I don't feel comfortable screwing around with the registry. I'm far too ignorant for that.
Never once had this problem with Windows 7. In fact, I had no problems in 4 years with my last PC, and now I don't think I'll "upgrade" to Win10 until they force me to, which I know they are working hard to accomplish.
I changed the Network List Service to Automatic(delayed) from Manual
No more errors from Metadata

Now, I have to find out why the last crash caused Oblivion to refuse to load. The same MS tech spent two hours trying everything to repair the game, to no avail. Now Bethesda is on the case, so I should hear back from them some time after Fallout 5. heh
