Default Behavior

Recommended Troubleshooting Service is a Win32 service. In Windows 10 it is starting only if the user, an application or another service starts it. When the Recommended Troubleshooting Service is started, it is running as LocalSystem in a shared process of svchost.exe along with other services. If Recommended Troubleshooting Service fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the TroubleshootingSvc service has failed to start due to the error.


Recommended Troubleshooting Service cannot be started under any conditions, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is disabled.
