Service Control Manager source errors - causes, need to fix

Before you decide to worry and attempt to troubleshoot the event codes 7000, 7001, 7009, 7011, 7023, 7031, 7034, 7043 and the Service Control Manager source, consider the following important point: You will encounter these types of errors on anyone, even the cleanest and smoothest Windows 10 system.. If these errors appear from time to time in the event view, instead of daily when starting, operating and shutting down the computer, the causes may be common processes related to Windows 10:

  • Installing updates (so some services may terminate and others that depend on them may cause an error).
  • Install new versions of drivers (including Windows 10 itself, in these cases we can get errors related to the device not being ready or not working).
  • Installation of third-party programs that interact with the services (sometimes only temporarily, for the installation to be successful).
  • Automated system maintenance (rarely).

In all cases, the errors may not appear during the process itself, but after restarting the computer or laptop, as many installation processes do not complete until after a reboot.

However, if you have these errors on a daily basis, the reasons can be very different, including:

  1. Manually manipulate the type of service startup, disable services, use various programs "to optimize", "speed up" and "disable tracking" Windows Getting an idea of ​​how disabling some services can affect others can be obtained from article Could not start a child service - how to fix.
  2. In case there are no errors after restarting the computer or laptop, but they are present after shutting down and then turning on (especially after some time has passed), you can try disabling the fast startup of Windows 10. It is also advisable to install Manually all original chipset drivers from the laptop or motherboard manufacturer's website, if you have a PC.
  3. Unstable operation of any device (bad connection, malfunction). Sometimes - problems connecting the device after switching to power saving mode. You can try to disable the power saving for the devices in the additional parameters of the power scheme in the control panel and in the properties of the device in the Device Manager in the tab «Power management» (it is not present for all devices ). This is especially common for USB devices and Wi-Fi and network adapters.
  4. Sometimes shutdown errors can occur if some third-party programs (for example, clients for downloading files from the Internet) prevent some network service from completing.

It is also worth checking if the above errors appear regularly if you clean boot Windows 10 - if not, you can assume that some third-party or antivirus programs are preventing services from starting properly. It may also be that these programs are starting services that cannot be started due to services for disabled children.

If the problem is recent, system restore points for the date before the errors can help.
