I just noticed that my Windows Event Viewer is flooded with a repeating trio of entries.
The Computer Browser service entered the running state.
The Computer Browser service entered the stopped state.
The Computer Browser service terminated with the following error:
Access is denied.
This occurs every two minutes.
I had a look at the local services. Computer Browser is set to Manual start under the Local System account. The Recovery options are set to retry twice after failing with a two minute delay each time. All of it dependency services are started and it has no dependants. I can't find any Group Policy's that mention this service by name.
If I try to start it manually, it just gives the usual "Access is denied."
What could be causing this to fail? How do I get this to work, or should I just disable it?
