SASDIFSV error in Event Viewer

Recommended Posts

Since the upgrade to 4.0, anytime I start superantispyware free version, I get an error in Event Viewer:

Event Type: Error

Event Source: Service Control Manager

Event Category: None

Event ID: 7000

Date: 4/1/2008

Time: 3:19:49 AM

User: N/A

Computer: MELE


The SASDIFSV service failed to start due to the following error:

Cannot create a file when that file already exists.

I have XP ProSP2.

EDIT: It is fixed! Evidently, the problem was occuring because I didn't reboot after the upgrade. I don't like to reboot because I have VMWare Workstation virtual machines running and it is a bit of a hassle to shut them down and then reboot the host machine. Plus, SAS didn't tell me I needed to reboot. I did reboot just now and then I manually started SAS and checked Event Viewer and there was no error. So, I think it is fixed. :)
