secdrv.sys not allowing games to start

Oct 26, 2005
  1. Recently i installed SP1a and BF1942 but BF wont run....

    I go into the event logger and it says this:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Service Control Manager
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 7000
    Date: XX/XX/XXXX
    Time: X:XX:XX XX
    User: N/A
    Computer: XXXX
    The Secdrv service failed to start due to the following error:
    The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at

    I have tried to update it with the SafeDisc installer but that always fails to install.

    Any help is appreciated.

    P.S. this is my first fourm post, and i didnt know where to put this tread (its a system file but it stops games)
