    Wondering if I could find someone so knowledgable enough as to be able to offer a suggestion here.

    I have checked... the microsoft site also. Pretty laughable when you see that it leads to a "maybe have to contact microsoft support, see the pricing on that". This is windows XP sp2. Not windows 2000, etc.. and has all the updates.

    The thing (problem) is that While I don't think this is affecting me personally... It is an issue for alot of people that have similar logs but more errors listed in the log. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/831374/ For someone that this is a problem for, there seems to be a little hotfix that is only available to you via e-mail... My problem may only be that these events keep repeating themselves in the log, but I dont like it. Guess I could try slipstreaming XP and using Bart PE. and all that good stuff but I was trying to keep this installation around for awhile even if it did come preloaded with some crap.

    I'm wondering about this also. I have a new Seagate hard drive and I ran chkdsk on it for the first time a few days ago. At least with this new drive I get a report in Event Viewer. (I never got a report with the old drive after the KAV problem began). I used Seadisc (Acronis TI 10) to clone the contents of the old drive to the new. I have the same error you do.

    Hi Mele,

    When I requested the hotfix, they said it wasn't even available or something like that. :cautious: I know I had came across a techsupport site that said it wasn't even a problem. More like a M$ problem if you ask me. If any System experts would like to post here, I'd be happy to read what they have to say.

    That hotfix seemed to me to be for those with further errors than what we have. That is interesting that Microsoft said it isn't available.

    Perhaps someone will post and explain why this is basically nothing.
