  1. Fantastic! Having tried the fixes from M$ forums, nothing worked. tried this simple registry edit & it worked a treat. Thank you very much.

  2. Wow. I did not expect this to work, but it did!

    Note that if you are on a domain, when you enter “NT SERVICE\mpssvc” and click Check Name, if it does not find it, make sure you are searching on the local machine, not on the domain.
