Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7000
Date: 23/04/2009
Time: 20:57:35
User: N/A
Computer: YOUR-6B995957AE
Description:
The Security Services Driver (x86) service failed to start due to the
following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

So far after an exhausting search I have no idea what is throwing up this
error in the event viewer, all I know is it's conected to the netevent.dll
which is present in it's correct location
Has anyone seen this specific error before or can anyone give me a direction
to go to fix this. Thanks.

No I haven't Gerry, I have Comodo firewall installed and haven't changed it
apart from it's own updates for several months.

I've seen that, I'm pretty sure, a long time ago. It was being caused
by some kind of timing problem with an old version of Norton SsytemWorks
but I've forgotten which function. It was an intermittant thing though;
yours sounds permanent.

Just a thought for you.

Do you have this entry in Windows Explorer?
"C:\ Windows\System32\DRIVERS\rp_skt32.sys "

The file could be part of software provided by your Internet Service
Provider. Have you recently changed ISP?

Thanks for the responses guys. No I don't have that file Gerry, I haven't
changed ISP in many years.
Twayne: I don't own any Norton software at all and as far as I can remember
have never installed any on this computer. I use AVG, Comodo, Spybot S&D and
CCCleaner for my computers security and maintenance.

Can you find the reference to the file using Autoruns?

The error could be an orphaned start-up entry.

To identify what loads when you boot use Autoruns (freeware from Microsoft).

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/ProcessesAndThreads/Autoruns.mspx

With Autoruns you can uncheck an item, which disables it from
starting,or you can right click an item and then delete it. If you
uncheck youcan recheck to re-enable the item. It is a much safer
approach than editing the Registry and better than using msconfig..
Another useful feature of the programme is that you can right click an
item and select Search Online to get information about the item
selected.

Start by looking at the entries on the Srvicess tab. You could find it
there. It may have a
note saying "File missing".
