Windows 10 Machine not checking in



  • Going through our inventory I found a few machines that haven't been checked in for quite some time. In investigating I found that the Salt service wasn't running. I tried to restart and got this:

    alt text

    So I went to the event logs and got this:

    alt text

    So I went back to the service to check for the path:

    alt text

    and in Windows Explorer:

    alt text

    All appears to be right with the universe so why isn't the service starting?

    All that to go back to the PC and find out that Avast quarantined a file after a reboot that I didn't see and now all is right in the universe.
