  1. Hi,

    I have been keep receiving the below error in my Windows 7 Event Viewer and I have observed that now my PC took a little while more to load. This also happened after I did a format to my system drive.

    The WinRing0_1_2_0 service failed to start due to the following error:
    The system cannot find the file specified.

    Attached is the screenshot of the error.

    Regards,

    hmm; looks like that was a poor choice.
    After the reformatting, ALL the OEM drivers were lost. You need to visit the barnd name website and download all the drivers.
    I also see you posted to bleepingcomputer.com

    Another site recommends
    Do you have a tv tuner in this? It may also be the remains of malware. Delete it. Then reboot. See if it comes back​
