Everytime, your Windows 7 computer starts, the following messages is registed into the Windows Event Viewer under systems:

The Function Discovery Resource Publication service terminated with the following error:

However, the service starts manually OK from the Windows Services.

The Function Discovery Resource Publications service is required by the Windows 7 “Home group” connectivity feature. This service publishes this computer and its resources so they can be discovered over the network. If this service is stopped, network resources will no longer be published and they will not be discovered by other computers on the network.

To resolve the problem,

1. Click Start – Search, type “Services.msc
2. Look for Function Discovery Resource Publication, right-click and select properties.
3. Set the service to start as “Automatic (Delayed)” as against the default “Automatic”

This should resolve the problem.
