Try going into Services, find that service, and disable it.

I would uninstall then reinstall the related program.

 

The process known as WinRing0 belongs to software WinRing0_1_2_0 or Moo0 SystemMonitor by OpenLibSys.org.

Thanks Louis, I actually dont have the program installed, I dont remember ever having it installed but I have not re formatted in 3 years. Is there anyway I can prevent this from creating the start up error in event viewer ?

Effectively hamluis's idea, I would try installing Moo0 System Monitor, then rebooting, and then uninstalling it.

 

The hope is that installing it fixes it (because the error you are having is usually due to an incorrect or incomplete uninstall in the past, such as from a partially failed uninstall, or a user simply deleting program files instead of uninstalling properly). So installing it repairs the missing stuff.

 

Rebooting is to make sure it's fully installed before uninstalling (to complete the fix).

 

And uninstalling is just for because you don't even want the program, and ideally this time it uninstalls it fully and correctly.

Perhaps if you did that again with the exact version of Moo0 System Monitor that you had installed the first time it might work. But you probably don't know what version it was, and you'd have to find it for download etc. And maybe it wouldn't help at all. But anyhow, I will get out of the way for hamluis to help.
