DOM 1084 WSearch

Ever had the dread black screen after boot on Windows 7,8 and 10 and the only thing you can do to get to the desktop is boot in Safe Mode?

You then look at the event viewer only to see thousands of
DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments "" in order to run the server:

My solution was to remove the graphics driver and reboot, hope that helps.

The problem is rectified by getting into Safe Mode creating a new user (as Administrator), rebooting and logging to the new user and removing the old user.
This seems to fix the problem and I have had this happening on 3 devices.
