As advised in the comments in this link, there’s a problem with SENS. I couldn’t run sc queryex successfully, so I took the (much more risky) method of killing every svchost.exe instance:

sc server taskkill /IM svchost.exe /F

While it’s slowly terminating these processes, I keep an eye on the Windows machine until it gets past this error message; then I stop taskkill.

Risky? Yes. You may kill the wrong service and hose your machine. I was stuck, so I had no other option.
