I'm receiving the following errors in the security event log on a windows 7 x32 machine.

There are a couple of them and I'm worried that it might indicate a coming drive failure.

Am I right to worry? Event below:

There were a couple of different ones with the same issue: File Name: \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows\System32\drivers\SSPORT.SYS File Name: \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows\System32\drivers\CVPNDRVA.sys

The CVPNDRVA relates to Cisco VPN software, I believe both DGIVECP and SSPORT are related to a samsung printer.

I took a longer look and it appears that only these three drivers are referenced.

It appears that it's a dell printer driver component. Is it unsigned or something? I would just find the driver installer, extract, and compare to see if it's a patched library(bad) or a signing issue(not so bad).

reference on what owns this file:

I think you're right. It looks like it's limited to just a samsung printer driver and a cisco vpn client. No other files are mentioned. – NotMe Dec 16 '10 at 15:59
another approach is to run sfc /scannow to check MS owned libraries and fix – RobotHumans Dec 16 '10 at 16:06
