Default Behavior

Sbp2port is a kernel device driver. In Windows 7 it won't be started if the user doesn't start it. If Sbp2port fails to start, Windows 7 attempts to write the failure details into Event Log. Then Windows 7 startup should proceed and the user should be notified that the sbp2port service is not running because of the error.

2. Copy the command below, paste it into the command window and press ENTER:

The sbp2port service is using the sbp2port.sys file that is located in the C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS directory. If the file is removed or corrupted, read this article to restore its original version from Windows 7 installation media.
