Stopping cryptsvc...how long?


Recommended Posts

You can't really cancel once it is in this state, so kill the program however you can.

Apparently this has happened to a couple of people so far; I don't know why since I have not run into it myself. I almost don't know where to begin unless the computer was in front of me.

We would like some more information about your computer, so go ahead and post the log that is created when you first open Dial-a-fix (so I can get some system details).

What you may need to do is go the manual route: open cmd and run the commands Dial-a-fix runs manually.

Start > Run > cmd.exe

When the command prompt box opens, try:

net stop cryptsvc

This may generate an error after timing out, or it might tell you that it's not in a state to where you can send it a start or stop command. If that's the case, restart your computer and try net stop cryptsvc again to see what happens and then post about it here.

I've had the same issue with the CRYPTSVC hanging when running DAF.

I found that in this particular instance, running the command manually to stop CRYPTSRV said that Panda TPsrv (antivirus and firewall) was dependent on the CRYPTSVC service so by stopping CRYPTSVC, it would also stop TPsrv. After agreeing to this by pressing 'Y' on the command prompt, it then shut both services down and I was able to kill DAF and start over.

yup, same with ZoneAlarm. CRYPTSVC was hanging, stumbled into this forum, so turned off the antivirus/firewall and then it all finished smoothly.
