System Keeps Restarting Event Log: Critical Error - Event ID 41


Computer rarely restarts during the time I am using it. It restarts if I leave stuff downloading overnight or if I leave on during the day. I then have to re-install any software I installed the previous time because it says it was shutdown improperly ( CRASHED).

I then check the Event logger and see it has multiple crash reports.

Shows as
Level: Critical
Source: Kernal-Power
Event ID: 41
Task Category: 63

I show 20 of these crashes so far and I just built the system yesterday. I need help in determining what could be causing this. The motherboard? Old Videocard? Windows 7? 64 Bit platform? Any thoughts?

I just built a brand new i7 920 System.


i7 920 ( Stock Speed )
Asus P6T SE Motherboard
Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit
Power Supply Antec 750W Modular PSU
CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS 10X Extreme
Samsung DVD burner
Seagate 1TB Drive 7200 RPM's
RAM: Kingston Hyper X 6GB of DDR3 @ 16000MHZ ( stock also) KHX1600C8D3K3/6GX

All parts are brand new except for the videocard which is a NVIDIA Geforce 7300 GS

Getting Multiple Error In Event Log
I have had a few BSOD on a secondary networked PC I use for some add on apps. I am pretty sure they are hardware related, but I was looking at the Event Log and it is reporting multiple errors connected with the Service Control Manager. The text is as follows "The WinPcap Packet Driver (NPF) service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified." The log show this has occurred 77,645 times in the last 24 hours, There are approx 700 entries of "The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error: The dependency service or group failed to start.

Two Repetitive Errors Routinely Showing Up In System Event Log
Friends I have two repetitive errors routinely showing up in my System Event log. I believe these to be Windows 7 networking policy errors in that it does not deal with a missing workgroup member correctly, but I could be wrong, obviously.

Periodic Crashes - Critical Event 41 (63)
My PC is just under 2 years old. It's a Dell Inspiron in which I upgraded the PSU (Corsair 550W) and the graphics card running Windows 7 Home Premium 64. Until earlier this year, I had no problems with it at all. I started getting crashes early/mid Feb. I recently (last week) replaced all the RAM, upgrading from 6GB to 8GB (Corsair). I reformatted and reinstalled Windows 7 completely. Including removing all the Dell partitions (was originally setup by them).

Up until the end of Feb 2012 I had Sophos running on my machine but currently need to reinstall virus checker. I try to keep everything updated. I updated the BIOS and graphics drivers; I cleaned my fans. I've run various diagnostics etc but I keep getting these crashes. It seems to happen particularly often when I'm playing Star Wars: the Old Republic but not exclusively. I've included all the files for analysis.

Kernel-Power Critical Event?
Recently I've been having a really odd problem with my computer. When left on for seemingly random periods of time it will just restart for no reason. It's never happened while I've been doing anything important, but I sleep in the same room and I notice the bios beeps. When I come back to the computer after it's been improperly restarted I must log in. Upon logging in I am met with a dialog box that says windows has shut down improperly, etc, etc. I click check for solutions and the dialog box just disappears. Absolutely no result to doing that.I then check computer management to see what the cause is. I receive the following:

Level: Critical
Date: 1/11/2011 7:45:51AM
Source: Kernel-Power
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)

This has happened 5 times. I was hoping it was just something power related as my house is pretty old, but I'm using a surge protector so I'm not quite sure. Now that it's happened this many times I realize it's not just going to go away and it could be pretty bad for my hardware.

Computer Locks Up Playing Several Games KERNEL ERROR In Event Log?
Dell XPS 9100 with Windows 7 pro X64. Dell support is no help, they just keep saying it is a software issue because their boot diagnostic doesnt show any problems. It quite often makes me do a system restore before i can get back into windows after it happens. Event log says Critical type, Kernel Error. System is less then 6 months old. I have had this problem for 3 of those months for a total of about 8 times.

WHEA-Logger Event 18/19 Errors In Event Viewer (Windows 7 Home Premium)?
Basically my laptop has been having very high temperatures for a long time (usually ~60C for CPU and often 100-110 for GPU...insanely high, in other words) For example, see how hot the machine gets just by resuming from a sleep (this is all within a minute or so):I have been seeing the following error in event viewer each time I start Windows (4 entries) for some time:So today I bit the bullet and had the back cover off the laptop and noticed what a bad state the thermal compound was in, for both the CPU and the chipset chip, so wiped it off using TIM Cleaner, and then applied new thermal compound and put the laptop back together. I was actually shocked because for the first time since I can remember, I could feel cold air blowing from the vents of my laptop! I logged into Windows and noticed that my temperatures had fallen and were staying at around the below:Not as low as I'd like but a massive improvement. Trouble is, I am still getting the WHEA-Logger event errors in Windows Event Viewer ('processor core') and wondered if this was not in regards to overheating after all?The plus side is my laptop is now almost totally silent - the way it must have been when I bought it new 3 years ago! But I was wondering how to investigate these WHEA-Logger errors?PS - I think I accidentally got some TIM Cleaner spilt on the carpet. Might be nothing to worry about, but I did notice the "Harmful" hazard symbol on the bottle?

Cant See Event Log
I have a checkpoint VPN service to connect to the office but for some time now the service isn't starting...even after re installing. so I looked for the event log or the user & groups in the "Manage" option from "My Computer" but it's missing.... as if my user on the laptop (I have only one - me) is no longer the administrator.

Event Log Service Is Missing?
The whole problem stems from the fact that my Office 2007 icons have magically disappeared, so I tried to run the Office diagnostic tool. But when I did, it mentioned an error about the event log service. I tried to go see if it was started or not, but when I did I realized that it wasn't even there. All of the registry values are present and correct so I don't know what the problem is.

Event Log Message After Shut Down
Copy of error log at time Windows 7 shut down and tried to restart. At the time this happened the system was operating collecting weather data from my weather station and automatically sending it to weatherunderground. I was reading a book at the time this happened. This message seems to deal with booting problems and not what caused Windows 7 to close and try to restart.

Event 100 And Event 200 Stuck At Welcome?
Just installed Windows 7 fresh on a new intel 320m 160gb. After i type in my password at the login screen windows hangs for about 15 - 20 seconds on welcome with the moving circle. Total boot time is about 40 - 50 seconds. I've checked the event log and an event 100 and event 200 show up at every boot and shut down but it does not tell me what process is causing this. I've tried a clean re install of windows 7 with a non sp1 and an sp1 disk and get the same results. I used windows boot or starup repair and it said something about an audio device? So i unplugged my Asus xonar but im still getting the same hang time on welcome. So far nothing is plugged in the computer except for mouse keyboard monitor and ethernet cable. I'm on a home network with one computer.The setup is gigabyte z68x ud3h b3 G skill 16gb ram or now 8corsair 800ax psui7 2600kgtx560I've installed plenty of windows 7 on many intel ssd's (mainly x25 m) and this is the first time ive seen this slow of a boot time and its especially odd that it gets hung up on the welcome screen. I've tried searching fora

Applications Hang, Many Errors In Event Log?
I just bought a new ASUS laptop with Windows 7 and I am so disapppointed. I got an error on reboot after updating Windows. I get hangs all the time. Application consitantly stop responding. The event log is chalk ful of errors, some dated from before I even bought this computer.

I attached a screenshot of the event log. I suspect there is more than one thing wrong. I expect an out of the box product to work. I am so upset and am about to return this and go mac..

Event Log Unavailable - Verify That Service Is Running
I'm having some problems with event viewer. When I go to open it, it gives me the "Event Log service is unavailable. Verify that the service is running." error. I've tried going through the steps Microsoft gives for creating new log files if yours are corrupted. Problem is, the .evt file doesn't exist.

I've researched the problem a lot and I do have UxStyle Core installed which is patching the files necessary to install third party themes, and I have heard that this may cause some issues with the event log, but everyone I saw undo any patching and even rollback updates, go to previous restore points, etc.

Random Computer Freezes With No Event Log Entries
So my computer randomly freezes up and when I boot up there are no log entries of the event. There are however always 3 log entries but I don't believe they are related to the actual problem. The 3 that are always there are: 6008, 7026 and 41. Now when I say it freezes I mean it literally freezes up. I do not get any blue screen or black screen or any errors it literally freezes as if I took a screenshot of my desktop and was looking at it. I can not use my mouse or keyboard I can not hear anyone in a skype call or anything it is FROZEN. The only way I am able to reboot it is by holding the power button which thus gives me the error code 41 above.

Event Log Service Unavailable But Listed As Running
When I try to run the event log I get the following Event Log service is unavailable. Verify that the service is running. In the services panel it is listed as running. However it is not. I have tried system restore but same issue. I don't know if it could be turned off in the registry or just what would cause this. I think the registry was modified and for some reason I have noticed certain registry entries don't always get restored if you use system restore.
