Windows 10 V1809: Continous Warnings (Event ID 1534)

[German]Another issue with Windows 10 version 1809, which I would like to discuss here. The User Profile Service populated the event log with warnings (Event ID 1534).


The error description

Blog reader Robert R. informed me about the issue by mail before (thanks for that). He wrote me about it:

Since upgrading to Windows 1809, I’ve had constant warnings (Event ID 1534) from the User Profile Service on all systems.

Error in profile notification of Load event for component {B31118B2-1F49-48E5-B6F5-BC21CAEC56FB}. Error code: See Tracelogging for error details.


Error in profile notification of Unload event for component {B31118B2-1F49-48E5-B6F5-BC21CAEC56FB}. Error code: See Tracelogging for error details.

The following figure shows three warnings that appear under Event Viewer (local) -> Windows logs -> Applications.

Robert wrote that it’s relatively annoying because it’s always in the logs. I agree with that. A short filtering shows that my systems event log is full of such warnings.


A workaround?

Robert then found this Technet forum entry on the Internet, which also deals with this problem.

User Profile Service Event 1534

Since build 17711 (also on latest 17728) all of my user accounts logs User Profile Service Event 1534 continuously (several times per minute). Even on a brand new non-domain account. Everything seems to work fine, but would be nice to understand this error?

Profile notification of event Load (and Unload) for component {B31118B2-1F49-48E5-B6F5-BC21CAEC56FB} failed.

Errorcode: See Tracelogging for error details.

Ereignis ID 1534

Within the thread, someone states that he have found a fix. Here are the short instructions – but I didn’t test them.

1. Call the registry editor Regedit (with administrator privileges) and navigate to the following two registry entries.



Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileNotification

ProfileNotification TDL
(Click to zoom)

2. Then select the key TDL, export it for security and delete it. To do this, the ownership of the key TDL may have to be transferred.

After restarting the system, the warning message should no longer appear in the event display.

    I get that problem too

    Besides in the eventvwr, I got this same message in a pop-up when tried to create a new SQL Server Data Tools package using “Import Project Wizard” template. And even though I am an adminstrator on the box, and started regedit as admin, I am denied access to delete the TLD key or to change security on it.

    Change the owner of the key from Trusted Installer to Admin
