Does your event viewer have this event recorded? Windows 7 Only

Hi All,

We currently have a support case open with Microsoft.  The issue is Windows 7 Event Viewer giving what appears to be a false positive for Event ID 55 NTFS errors on the system partition.  MS is saying that it could occur even though the disk and file system is fine.  The development team is supposedly working to narrow down the issue.  We are trying to find a pattern in hardware/etc to try to help us narrow it down.  

Would you mind taking a moment and checking your Event Viewer (if you don't check it regularly) and see if your system log has ever logged an NTFS Event ID 55 error?  This could be on a perfectly good system.  If so, can you please post your mobo/processor/version of Windows 7, etc?  A google search reveals lots of users with the issue and some say it causes a chkdsk at reboot for no reason.  

If you have access to several machines, the more the merrier.  

Thanks!

Jsmply--I can't say  this error has never logged, but I do not see it in the past week.  I do see the following NTFS error once every day or two

"Log Name:      System
Source:        Ntfs
Date:          11/21/2010 11:10:47 AM
Event ID:      137
Task Category: (2)
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      EQUUS-PC
Description:
The default transaction resource manager on volume \\?\Volume{37087c3a-182a-11df-8091-806e6f6e6963} encountered a non-retryable error and could not start.  The data contains the error code."

but it does not seem to affect operations and I would not know it had occurred unless I looked into Event Viewer.  Using Win 7 Pro and IE8.  Mobo is Gigabyte H55M-USB3.  Intel core i5.
Had you seen this reference
