Issue: How to fix ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST?

Hello, I get  “ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST” when trying to update Windows. Sometimes it also shows the error code 0x80070424. I am updating my Windows 10 running laptop. I have no idea how I can solve this. Is there any particular reason why this error shows up or a method to fix it?

Solved Answer

ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST is one of many Windows system errors. All of them display the particular error codes that indicate specific problems, and due to different issues, there are many ways to solve them.

This 0x80070424 error code also is known for involving either Windows Update or Windows Store services in Windows 10 OS. These both are inter-dependable services,[1] and when one of the services receives the error, the other one can get the alert too. 

Some users report to encounter the ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST error during the Windows updating process or upgrading Windows Defender, and other ones state the issue occurs to Windows Update Standalone Installer sections.[2]How to fix ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST

ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST 1060 (0X424) can have a few reasons:

  • Windows update services. When the update requires particular services and processes to do the safe installation. When the needed services cannot run the error appears on the screen.
  • Required system files. When particular system files are needed for the update, and they are not found or not registered on the system, the error pops up on the screen. 
  •  0x80070424 error scam. It may be related to a potentially unwanted program or a technical support scam[3] that aims to trick people into paying for some fake software or alleged technical support help.
