Event ID: 7026 LBD Driver?

Computer is booting slowly, and the event log is clean except for the following error:

Source: Service Control Manager
Event ID: 7026

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:


I've already done numerous virus/malware scans (SEP, Malwarebytes) without any luck. Want to clear out the Event Log to see if this might be causing the slowness.

Any ideas on what this could be and how to resolve it? Thanks!

Head over to CCleaner.com, download and install.  Start it up and choose REGISTRY on the left side.  Seach for issues, then Fix them.  Do this until CCleaner shows "No Issues Found"

Paste the following 2 lines, and post the output please.....

reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lbd" /s>lbd.txt
notepad lbd.txt

you have a remnant of lavasoft ad-aware...

you need to find it as a service (services.msc) and disable it, or find it in the registry and delete it from there

it should be in
hkey current machine
current control set
(or around "services" in there, just edit>find anything for lbd or lavasoft or ad-aware)

Forgot to mention, I already ran CCleaner. And you're right, it's an awesome tool. That and Malwarebytes have been saviors at times.
Also, use MSConfig to rule out any uneeded Startup Items(only keep AV/Malware scanners active) by unchecking them then retest. Then go to the Services Tab and look to see what you dont need.....


Great website to help you determine what services you do and dont need.....
