    "unable to connect to virtual disk service"

    This just started. Other symptoms:
    Disk Manager: "unable to connect to virtual disk service"
    Internet: "Connection Status Unknown, not enough storage is available to complete this operation"
    Speakers: "The audio service is not running"
    Quick Launch Toolbar: Cannot start Windows Explorer, but other apps ok.


    Internet is up and running fine, can still get email and visit web pages.

    Yesterday, tried to run VS C# Express for the first time, and could not open a project without getting a error message. So, I ran the following script usin subbinacl:
    cd /d "%programfiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subdirectories %windir%\*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f

    What's happening?

    1.Subinacl is not for x64! It doesn't apriopriate recognise x64 system code .Instead this you can use SetACL http://setacl.sourceforge.net/ or setacl from Power Shell
    2.

    Am also unable to access restore "Not enough mmemory" Also, cannot open "Help"
    Restore paging file to default settings Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

    3.Navigate to Start>>Search>>services.msc find Virtual Disk Service -make sure this service is started and set to DEMAND -you can also try set it to AUTO

    No, but here is something else. I cannot uninstall anything. I get the error that it "may have already been uninstalled" which it has not.
