    More errors in event viewer


    I searched and saw where this could be related to restore, so I went and created a checkpoint on system restore and went back into event viewer and there was the same error at the same time I did the creating a checkpoint. Here's the error:

    Cryptographic Services failed while processing the OnIdentity() call in the System Writer Object.
     
    Details:
    AddLegacyDriverFiles: Unable to back up image of binary Microsoft Link-Layer Discovery Protocol.
     
    System Error:
    Access is denied.

    Hi,

    That error keeps on cropping up occasionally.
    As the message suggests it has to do with permissions on some folders in the windir. It is generated whenever Windows Backup or any other back up software is invoked.

    As it happens I just fixed it on my Insider Preview system a few hours ago.
    Copy the entire lines of commands into a command prompt with admin rights and let it execute. It should return a message like "Operation successful" or something along those lines.
    After that you'll never see the CAPI2 error again.

    Cheers,
