  • try this.

    go to services.msc, set the credential manager service to disabled.
    reboot, then change it back to manual.

  • I was getting the same problem.

    I went into services and change the Credentials Manager from manual to automatic.  The problem appeared to be because credential manager was not starting at boot up.

    I've only got one sucessfull boot under my belt but now credentail manager isn't getting the error and my network drives are automatically connecting at boot up.

  • Was anyone able to fix this issue, I just started having it randomly today.  I changed my domain password a few days ago, I'm sure that's what's causing it.

    I blue screen with that error when:
    - I try to open Control Panel > Credential Manager
    - I try to start the Credential Manager Service
    - I set the service to Automatic and reboot (I had to go into Safe Mode and set it back to Manual to have a successful startup)

    Any other ideas?

  • I was able to fix this! I ran sfc /scannow from an administrative command prompt. It detected some corrupt system files, fixed them, reboot, bam!!!

    Go to run type services.msc.
    stop credential.
    start credential.
    Set start type to automatic

    restart

  • None of the above solutions has worked so far! Is there no clear solution resulting in Credential Manager Service to start properly, whether it is manual or automatic?
