Monitors system events and notifies subscribers to COM+ Event System of these events.
|Windows Vista edition||without SP||SP1||SP2|
|Display name:||System Event Notification Service|
|Path:||%WinDir%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs|
System Event Notification Service logs on as LocalSystem and runs in a shared process of svchost.exe. If System Event Notification Service 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 SENS service has failed to start. At least one service depends on System Event Notification Service. Therefore I do not recommend you to disable it.
System Event Notification Service will not start, if the COM+ Event System is stopped or disabled.
If System Event Notification Service is stopped, the COM+ System Application fails to start and initialize.
