Hi! On my hp laptop with Windows 10, the security center service wscsvc cannot be started anymore which leads to an error message on login. when you start it, it crashes with 0xc0000005. A coworker has the same issue. From the Application event log:

Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: svchost.exe_wscsvc, Version: 10.0.19041.1806, Zeitstempel: 0x7dcad237 Name des fehlerhaften Moduls: wscsvc.dll, Version: 10.0.19041.2673, Zeitstempel: 0xdf2f9a5b Ausnahmecode: 0xc0000005 Fehleroffset: 0x0000000000014679 ID des fehlerhaften Prozesses: 0x53d0 Startzeit der fehlerhaften Anwendung: 0x01d967094ea0994f Pfad der fehlerhaften Anwendung: C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe Pfad des fehlerhaften Moduls: c:\windows\system32\wscsvc.dll Berichtskennung: b52107b6-b157-4726-a2c6-13b9e28ee214

    Here are some steps to troubleshoot and resolve the issue

    • Run System File Checker (SFC)
      • Command Prompt as Administrator
        • sfc / scannow
    • Run DISM (Deployment Image Servicing and Management)
    • Command Prompt as Administrator
      • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • Update drivers

    At first, upgrading to Windows 11 seemed to have fixed the problem, but now it is back

    It looks like a real crash and should be fixed by Microsoft.
