Event 219 Returns periodically

Periodically I get Event 219:

The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device WpdBusEnumRoot\UMB\2&37c186b&0&STORAGE#VOLUME#_??_USBSTOR#DISK&VEN_GENERIC-&PROD_COMPACT_FLASH&REV_1.00#20060413092100000&0#.

Like most users, I'm constantly plugging and unplugging (safe;y remove) USB flash drives and SD card from a build in reader on a Dell 980 W7Pro/64. I apply the fix from here:

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/entries-in-event-viewer-that-driver-failed-to-load/4fc2a092-cc20-44e5-bc38-fdace03ba8bd

Which is to say I check the "Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework" service. I set it to Automatic and the error goes away. Then, sometimes later -- I can't reproduce the circumstances because it could be anything USB related -- the service switches itself back to manual. And I have to go through the drill again and change it back to auto to make the errors disappear.

Can someone explain why this service changes itself back to manual on its own and generates the error. Is some USB device -- card reader, flash drive, external hard drive that I had to disconnect -- causing this or is it something else I can adjust. Thank you.

I can't say why it reverts back, but checking on my own Dell laptop it's always in manual and USB works normal.
Anyway if you want the service to remain in Automatic mode and gets started in computer startup you can make a script for that.
Open notepad and paste the following code in it:
@ echo off
sc config "wudfsvc"  start= auto
net start wudfsvc

Open in new window

Then save it as a bat file, for example wudfsvc.bat (be sure to select All files in the notepad save dialog and type the name of the file wudfsvc.bat)
Script.pngYou can either put it on the desktop and run it everytime or add it to the windows startup:
1- open Run
2- Type   gpedit.msc  then press enter
3- in the left pan find :
Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts (Startup/Shutdown)
4- Double click on Startup item.
5- Click Add and Browse to the location of your bat file, and select it.
6- Click Ok and then OK.

That must do the trick
