Every time I try to do anything related to Error Code: 0x80070425 "The service cannot accept control messages at this time" I can't get into these places because of the error. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can't do anything suggested by everyone for this error because of the error.  Cannot change user account type, run any programs to fix it because it won't let me.  Can't get into services, account user change, nothing.  Downloads will not work from MSN or anywhere else.  Can't download MSN fixes, won't download.

    It won't even let me in to do a factory restore.

  • Hi,

    What's the scenario when you encounter this error? Was it just for Internet Explorer or the whole system?

    Please run sfc/scannow command to check and fix the corrupted system file:

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files
