Steps to reproduce

After F12 has crashed a few times (which sadly is happening periodically in Spartan), next time it is used, the network inspector will stop showing any data and the “start” and “stop” buttons will be grayed out.


This is due to the IEEtwService not cleaning up when there’s a rude exit.


The workaorund is to restart the IE ETW service via Computer Management. That is, right click and choose Restart on the service shown below.


We need to readme this for //BUILD.
