    Welcome to WindowesBBS;)

    Is something on your pc not working?

    Of you google: ScRegSetValueExW
    You'll see it's common and you might find a solution.

    Many evens can be ignored if your pc is working ok;)

    Hi A333,

    A bit rude, don't you think? If googled, you could have found out that the error is
    The error meaning is that something tried to access a section of the registry it's not allowed to.
    See:
    http://help.lockergnome.com/windows/system-error-service-control-manager--ftopict558883.html

    Common causes:
    Anything installed/uninstalled or updated that required registry/registration access. Unfortunately it was not able to access. Maybe a rights issue or software issue. Most likely an issue that can be ignored if you are not having problem. The event is meant to be informative.

    Are you having other issues?

    Hi again A333,

    Since you have stated that
    I would ignore it for now.

    If you are truly curious and want the root cause resolved then you may have to play detective and explore what may have changed within the time the event notification reflects. Check out other events, look for application errors, device manager driver errors.

    When I googled this, I did note that this error was reported to be often caused by a virus program update. Some ignored it and it took care of its self. Some noticed virus program became problematic and had to take further steps to resolve that issue.

    The long and short of it is, it can be caused by many things and unless you figure out what it is by a self exploratory or some as yet unknown problem rears it's ugly head in a more specific and clear manner, you can ignore it.

    Your welcome and I'm sure this boards members would be happy to help further but the error is generic/not very informative and there's not much more to go on. It's kind of hard to pin this down when all is well with the computer thus far.

    Dear goddez1,:)
    Resolved
    Your suspicion on virus programs was quite correct. The root of this nasty problem was the earlier build of Kaspersky Internet security 2010. After their critcal update to build 9.0.0.463, the problem was totally resolve. So everyone must consider this case resolve.
