Provider Name="VDS Dynamic Provider"

Thank you.


Hi Shield-I,

This issue occurs because the Virtual Disk service stops the Virtual Disk providers when it shuts down. When this occurs, the Virtual Disk service unregisters for driver notifications. Then, the service stops the notification processing thread.

Because the process occurs in this order, the notification processing thread may call back in to the driver after the provider has unregistered for notifications with the driver. In this case, an event is logged.

To resolve this issue if you have an application, an accessory, or a service that experiences a failed Virtual Disk start, restart the Virtual Disk service.

Note: Even if the Virtual Disk service has been restarted once, the issue may still occur after you restart the operating system.

Have a look at the following article link:

Event ID 10 may be logged on a computer that is running a clean installation of Windows Vista SP1 or Windows Server 2008

Hope this helps.
