SYMPTOMS

When a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 is under high stress, the TCP/IP Registry Compatibility (Tcpipreg) service may stop responding. Or, a malfunction may occur in the service. Additionally, some applications that are related to the network do not function as expected.

For example, when you resume a Windows Vista-based computer from hibernation (S4) or from suspend (S3), a malfunction occurs in the Tcpipreg service. In this case, when you try to use the net stop tcpipreg command to stop the Tcpipreg service, the command may stop responding.
