Event Viewer error, NvStreamSvc
This afternoon my computer was unresponsive. It took ten seconds from when I would click on an object to when the action would happen. All six cores of my 3930K were pegged at 40% usage with a bunch of nv processes showing in the task manager. I checked out the event viewer and saw over 20 instances of the following error, corresponding to the same time my computer was unresponsive. The event viewer error was: The description for Event ID 1 from source NvStreamSvc cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer. Prime 95 doesn't even cause the crippling of my system like this did. If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event. The following information was included with the event: NvStreamSvc NvVAD initialization failed [6]

The issue seems to be because of the NVIDIA Stream Service included with GFE 1.6. Try disabling it within Windows Services and check if it helps.

I haven't had the lock up and unresponsive computer event occur again. I am still getting errors in the event log but no negative effects from the errors.

I stopped the error from showing up in event viewer by going to computer manager, services, and disabling NVIDIA Streamer Service.

The last update did not fix this issue. Event viewer still generating the error . Disable NVIDIA Stream Service in Services.
