    Cannot start windows audio service, access is denied


    Hi,


    I recently restart my laptop and after that, I saw a red cross on my audio sign.

    I run the troubleshooting. It says one or more audio services isn't running.

    Then I go to the services. I saw windows audio endpoint builder is running. But the window audio is not running. I try to start it. But I got "windows could not start the windows audio service on local computer. Error 0x80070005: Access is denied."


    What I have tried:

    1. update the audio driver.

    2. uninstall and install the audio driver.

    3. set the registry editor to full control.

    4. check the antivirus history.

    5. restart computer.

    nothing works.


    I also try to set Windows audio log on ->local system account.

    This could let me run the Windows audio service. But still no sound.


    I also run sfc /scannow. It tells me : Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.


    I am so upset after trying everything I can find on the internet.


    Any suggestions?


    Thank you

    :)
     

  2. Audio Service not starting - access denied


    My audio service is refusing to start regardless of what I try on Windows 10 1803.

    I have attempted the following:

    • Re-installing audio drivers
    • Updating audio drivers
    • A full virus scan
    • A disk check
    • An SFC check
    • Making sure all the dependencies of the Windows Audio Service are running
    None of these have succeeded in changing anything.
    Whenever I try to start the audio service, I get this error message:

    Cannot start windows audio service, access is denied [​IMG]


    This made me think it is potentially the firewall messing everything up, so I start up Windows Defender and get this error message:

    Cannot start windows audio service, access is denied [​IMG]


    Are these two problems related, and does anyone know how I can fix it?

    EDIT:
    The Windows Defender Antivirus Service and Windows Defender Antivirus Network Inspection Service are both not running, and when I try to start them I get this error:

    Cannot start windows audio service, access is denied [​IMG]


    I imagine that this is connected in some way but I have no clue how to fix it.

  3. Windows audio service access denied

    After a windows update my windows Audio service will not start. When trying to start it normally i get a message saying error 0x80070005: access is denied. This is leaving my computer without sound. Also it seems to have stop windows updates from installing
    and i can't use a system restore point because it said it does not have permissions to access some files.
     
  4. Cannot start windows audio service, access is denied

    Windows could not start the Windows Audio Service on Local Computer

    I have no audio on my PC. After searching for advice I started the services.msc program and the Windows Audio service wasn't running. I tried starting it manually but I get the message "Windows could not start the Windows Audio Service on Local Computer.\n
    Error 0x80070005: access is denied." The service properties Log On tab shows to Log on as: This account - Local Service.

    I have tried switching to run as a Local System account. This got rid of the red cross over the speaker icon in the system icon tray but I still didn't get audio.

    Any suggestions?
