Default Behavior

Crcdisk Filter Driver is a kernel device driver. In Windows 7 it is disabled and therefore it isn't starting. If Crcdisk Filter Driver 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 crcdisk service is not running because of the error.
