    What is causing these warnings in my Event Log?


    Most of the time when starting/restarting my machine I will get the warning messages below in my event log. The three of them always appear together. Regardless of what the messages say I have full Internet connectivity and I am wondering if some process is trying to make an Internet connection before the network is fully initialized.

    I realize it's only a warning but I'm curious what is causing this. I tried setting the Windows Update service to Automatic Delayed Start but that had no affect.

    ID MESSAGE

    200 - A connection to the Windows Update service could not be established.
    201 - A connection to the Windows Metadata and Internet Services (WMIS) could not be established.
    202 - The Network List Manager reports no connectivity to the internet.

    You would have to open each one up to find out. Are you running any kind of third party Internet Security Software?

    On a hunch I unplugged my router and cable modem then waited a minute or so and then plugged in the modem and finally the router. I rebooted and no more event log messages, for now.

    Most likely then it was the firewall on the router that got gummed up.
