    Hi,
    I just installed Win 7 x64 (clean install). I'm getting this VSS error in Administrative Events and wondering why? I did a little research and this was a problem with Vista when running Office Standard 2007 see

    I installed Office Standard 2007 on this machine, but I have two other machines running same configuration and only this new one is receiving this error.
    Wondering if anybody has any ideas?

    TIA!

    Event ID 8194 Volume Shadow Copy Service Error - RESOLVED

    Found the problem. Using Gigabyte MB, it comes with a program called Smart6 which includes a module called Smart Recovery. Looks like this module does something similar to System Restore. Anyway, I just disabled it and the problem is gone. I guess Smart6 and Win7 are not playing well together at this time. Thought I'd pass this along just in case anyone else runs into this problem.
