    Hi Deepak,

    I have never faced this error but i came across a description of it on the net. I guess there are some necessary drivers that are needed to be installed prior or should have been present are missing.

    Also i check for "Services\fdemd" never found anything like it. Can you confirm the spelling.

    "The Services subkeys under the following registry path contain parameters

    for the device drivers, file system drivers, and Win32 service drivers:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

    The name of each Services subkey is the name of the service, which is also

    the root of the name of the file from which the service is loaded. For

    example, for the serial mouse, the service name and Services subkey name is

    Sermouse. The file from which this is loaded is:

    SystemRoot\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\SERMOUSE.SYS."
