This for me is a red flag that something is wrong with the
installation of Windows. The other reason for Firebird not starting
automatically, can be related to the Windows Events handler, since
Firebird can be trying to write to it.

I would try to find out why there's an error "Unknown Interface", when
going in the Event Viewer. That error shouldn't exists, especially if
the user is logged on as Administrator.
