    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".
