This event can be safely ignored. The storflt driver is only needed when Windows Server 2008 is running as Hyper-V guest. To prevent this error from being logged every time that the system restarts, perform the following steps to delete the references to the storflt driver. :



1. Open an elevated command prompt

a. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

2. Delete the storflt driver

a. sc delete storflt



Note: Do not do this on a Hyper-V virtual machine. On restart the virtual machine will most likely generate a Stop Error 0x0000007b. If you encounter this problem, booting to Last Known Good may be able to restore the registry to the previous state.
