Resolution:

 

First stops following two services one by one:

 

Windows SharePoint Services Administration and

Windows SharePoint Services Timer. If stopping “Windows SharePoint Services Administration” results in ending Event: 6482 and stopping “Windows SharePoint Services Timer” results in ending Event: 6481, kindly try looking / resetting services account in Central Administration.

 

  • SharePoint Central Administration -> Operations ->Service accounts (Security Configuration).
  • Select “Web application pool” rradio button and then select “Windows SharePoint Services Web Application”.
  • Select appropriate application pool like “Sharepoint – 80” and select “Configurable” radio button.  Enter desired user name and password and hit “OK”. (Do not forget to note existing settings just in case).
  • Restart IIS (type iisreset –noforce using command prompt).
