Every second I get the following fault in the system log in Windows 7. How do I find the source of this error and eliminate it?

Aha! Found it.

Searched for "msrvc" in the registry, and it pointed to "C:\Program Files (x86)\ssrvc\msrvc.exe:*:Enabled:USB aware Client".

I ended up installing (then uninstalling) "USB Lock" from Advanced Systems International a while ago. This program was so incredibly badly designed that its still monkeying with my home PC, 6 months later. I had to reboot into safe mode then delete the rogue files that it was infesting my system with.


Ended up reinstalling Windows to get rid of that buggy app. My advice? Don't touch it, unless you're into that suffering thing.
