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

    • Run System File Checker (SFC)

    sfc actually found something. Problem persists.

    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.
