Default Behavior

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

Restore Default Startup Configuration for Storvsc

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

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

sc config storvsc start= demand

3. Close the command window and restart the computer.

The storvsc service is using the storvsc.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.
