Unable to start splunk once my laptop turns on/off

When I initially install Splunk I am able to use it with no problems, but once my laptop turns on and off I am unable to to start Splunk up again. 

I have tried to start Splunk in the command prompt I get access denied when I try to start it without admin mode.

I do not get any errors in the command line when using admin but once everything has finished it says its starting then the next and last line is 'Splunkd: Stopped' which means it starts up then instantly stops which doesn't give me access.

The only fix I have currently is uninstalling and reinstalling Splunk.

Hi @Emerzz69,

sorry for my stupid question but maybe I didn't understand you need: are you speaking of automatic statup at boot of Splunk on a Windows system?

If yes, go to Services (services.msc) and check if you have the automatic statup or not and what's the user to run Splunk.

Ciao.

It is normal to have to start Splunk in a command prompt that is running in Administrator mode.

Sorry I may have been unclear in my explanation. Using admin mode doesn't help either as it starts Splunk up then instantly stops it which does not give me access.

Is there anything in the log files that might explain the shutdown?
