Fax logs on as NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService and runs in its own process of fxssvc.exe. It does not share its process with other services. If Fax fails to start, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows Vista startup proceeds, but a message box is displayed informing you that the Fax service has failed to start.
Fax won't start, if the following system components are stopped or disabled:
1. Select your Windows Vista edition and Service Pack, and then click on the Download button below.
2. Save the RestoreFaxWindowsVista.bat file to any folder on your hard drive.
3. Right-click the downloaded batch file and select Run as administrator.
4. Restart the computer to save changes.
Note. Make sure that the
fxssvc.exe file exists in the
%WinDir%\system32 folder. If this file is missing you can try to restore it from your Windows Vista installation media.
