Default Behavior

The Named pipe service trigger provider is a kernel device driver. In Windows 8 it is being loaded and initialized at Kernel initialization. If Named pipe service trigger provider fails to start, the error details are added to Windows 8 error log. Then Windows 8 is restarting using the Last Known Good configuration. This could cause the situation when the PC is restarting repeatedly, but the npsvctrig service remains unavailable. Do not change its startup configuration unless you know what you do.
