Red Crypto Services Error appearing every 5-10 mins in Event Viewer



I've made sure the service is started and automatic. This all started when
I had a problem with the partition directly after my Vista one and had to
format it. It wasn't however, a system volume, but rather just a backup
Can't find any info that helps find a solution.
