I checked through the Event log in Administrator tools.
I got the following error: The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: BANTExt

What is it?

I googled BANTExt and found out it's BelArc Advisor. Is it true?

How do I stop this error?

Yes, BANText.sys is the Belarc Advisor system driver file.

It is started automatically from a Run, RunOnce, RunServices, or RunServicesOnce entry in the registry everytime Windows starts.
To prevent the error you would need to find and remove that entry in the registry.

Or...interpret the message that this is a sign that Belarc is damaged...then uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs...and then reinstall it.

Is Belarc installed on your system? If so, uninstall it.

If it's not installed...you would probably have to use something like Unlocker to remove any vestiges that remain on your system. You could always do a manual search of the registry and your files...for anything related to Belarc...but I don't know how effective that would be.

Are you having any issues with your system? If not, why are you in the event log?

I just want to reduce the error causing on my computer.

BelArc is uninstalled long time ago, all I want to do is remove all the registry of BelArc.
.

Is unlocker good?

Oh well I will start remove belarc registry manually

I removed everything related to belarc, it is still showing the error in the event log

It could well be a start-up pointer...left over from an incomplete removal of the program.

I would download Autoruns, double-click the icon. Click the autoruns.exe file, it will show a notice that all files should be extreacted...click OK.

In the new folder containing the extracted files...click Autoruns.exe.

Click on the LOGON tab.

See if anything (on the LOGON tab) points to the file named in your error message...if so, delete it.

It's not in the LOGON tab, but I see it on the Drivers tab instead.

Btw, if the other files are saying "File not found", is it safe to delete them all?

<<...if the other files are saying "File not found", is it safe to delete them all?>>

I do :), and I've not known it to cause problems on my system ever.

When it comes to deleting items, do whatever is comfortable for you...some prefer to disable for a while, then delete later.

If you are not having any problems with your system why not just leave things alone?
