Default Behavior

Ql2300 is a kernel device driver. In Windows 7 it won't be started if the user doesn't start it. If Ql2300 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 ql2300 service is not running because of the error.
