Default Behavior

Cmdide is a kernel device driver. In Windows 7 it won't be started if the user doesn't start it. If Cmdide fails to load, Windows 7 attempts to write the error data into Event Log and restart the computer, using the Last Known Good configuration. If the Last Known Good configuration is not valid, Windows 7 startup ends with a Stop error. If you remove or disable the cmdide service, Windows 7 won't start.

Restore Default Startup Configuration for Cmdide

1. Select your Windows 7 edition and service pack, and then click Download.

2. Save the Win7_cmdide_Service_Startup.cmd file to a local storage device.

3. Run the saved file as an administrator.

4. Restart the computer.

The cmdide service is using the cmdide.sys file that is located in the %WinDir%\system32\DRIVERS folder. If the file is changed, damaged or deleted, you can restore its original version from Windows 7 installation media.
