    Windows Service connection failure


    I bought a new PC a few weeks ago with Window 10. Worked fine for a while and now when I switch on and type my password I get a message in the bottom right hand corner of the screen stating “Failed to connect to a Windows Service”
    I googled this problem and the advice given was to run the command prompt as an administrator and type “netsh>winsock reset
    However, when I right click on the command prompt icon and click run as an administrator nothing happens. A few minutes later an error message pops up on the screen stating “The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"
    If I left, click on the command prompt icon the command window opens immediately
    Can anyone help

    Suppose you are having Internet connection problems? Does normal Internet access go OK?

    Rt click the windows 4 squares bottom left then rt click 'Command Prompt(admin)'. See if that works.

    Thanks but that doesn't work either. after a couple of minutes I get the same error message "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"

    My internet access appears fine and I can browse websites without any problem
