Literally. The Event log shows VDS starting and stopping every minute, almost to the second. For the life of me, I can't figure out why. There doesn't seem to be anything to tell me what app or process is triggering the event. I've checked online, msdn, other tech support sites, everywhere I can think of, to no avail. I run two separate virus checkers plus Windows Defender, nothing on any scan. Reset the laptop to factory default about two weeks ago. The problem persists. I don't think any damage is being done, but there seems to be a small drag on the laptop responsiveness AND I'm tired of clearing the humungous log every week.

Can anyone shed light on this issue? If I need to post anything (the event log itself - four entries for every occurence) let me know.



Laptop: HP Pavilion TX2000 Notebook PC (tablet)
O/S Windows Vista 64-bit Home Premium, SP 1 installed (am selectively updating the system)
Running wireless, no bluetooth, only external devices are a second monitor and USB-wireless mouse.
