Event ID 1074 repeatedly occurring on several systems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello --

    We have a group of workstations running the Windows 7 64-bit distribution. I noticed the systems in question all rebooted at a specific time this past weekend. All system logs had the following entry:

    EVENT ID: 1074 USER32 0x800000ff

    I checked on-line for this message, and Microsoft has confirmed this is a problem. Has anyone seen this, and have insight on what, if anything, can be done?

    Thanks.

  • Hello --

    I found the cause. It appears there is a scheduled reboot for Sunday on the systems in question. I am contacting the administrator who set this up. Thanks for the help in any event.

  • Does it tell you which process caused the shutdown?  The 1074 event ID just means there was a shutdown but does not provide the reason for it...

    I did a bit of reading and it seems like the source maybe user32 - can you validate this?

    There is an article posted from someone having similar issues:

    Have you tried the steps in that article?
