"failed with: The handle is invalid." Errors. How to fix?
« on: September 14, 2021, 11:39:25 AM »
I have been attempting to restore default permissions, yet every time I get the error "failed with: The handle is invalid." for the same 4 things.  Any idea why or how to fix this sort of thing?  I have included the error log.  Thanks.

Do you mean the entry is invalid ?

That denotes there is a Windows Update available.

Check for updates and when it has installed, try Windows Repair again.

I hope this is a genuine query as I've identified you as a Spammer.

I am on vpn, which could explain why this IP could be identified as "spammer"?  This is a genuine query.  When I do reset default perms, I get these errors.  I do not know if they are invalid entries or what.

ERROR: Writing SD to <machine\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\CurrentLanguage> failed with: The handle is invalid.
ERROR: Writing SD to <machine\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009> failed with: The handle is invalid.

ERROR: Writing SD to <machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009> failed with: The handle is invalid.

I will run windows update though and attempt the repairs again.  Thanks.

Have you had a recent Windows Update that may not have installed correctly ?

Can you go into Device Manager to check for yellow alerts against any of the devices ?

Can you open a Powershell (Admin) and enter these cmds -

dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

exit (to close command window)

Let me know if the sfc /scannow finds any files to repair.

Try Windows Repair again.

BTW - The spam report was dated for today at 18.39.

I have performed all those tasks yet the problems remain.  I have found at least 2 other posts on here with the exact same issue, although I am unsure how they solved them.  I have no clue what to do.  https://www.tweaking.com/forums/index.php/topic,5838.msg43366.html#msg43366

As for the spam thing.  This is my first time using this forum, and the only thread I have made is this one right here.

As you can see in the first link, jpm said they were normal and can be ignored.

jpm is an admin of the forum.

I have the same problem.  I read on another post that the four can be ignored?  I'm going with that for now unless I hear different.
