Can anyone suggest the best way to fix dfsvc.exe. I am having problems installing a couple of programs and a few other odd window probs - I think the probs seem to stem from a faulty dfsvc.exe.

Thank you
Kate

What is the actual error you are getting Kate? From what I read it is either part of the .net framework or a virus.

If it is only in something like capture 1 then i would look at reinstalling the .net framework otherwise it could be a nasty.

Hi Chris
I am trying to update windows explorer but it won't complete the update - also tried installing google chrome same problem - also trying to install Seagate dashboard so I can access my wireless hard drive - same problem. At one point " problem with dfsvc.exe" came up on the screen can't remember the exact words. This is not on my own computer, it is on a computer I use at work. I did do a system restore yesterday stupidly for a different reason and I think something has gone wrong because these probs were not there before unfort I cannot udo the restore. The comp runs window xp.

From what I read Kate, this may be solved by deleting the file:

C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat

where %userprofile% is your user name.
Might work Wink

I think you need to log in as a different person to do it.
