Error "Detected INFCACHE inconsistency" every boot

2009-09-07, 18:10 PM

Every time my X301 2774-LFG boots up (Vista SP2), a set of error messages are written to the file C:\Windows\inf\setupapi.app.log saying:

 

>>>  [Build Driver List - USB\VID_0BDB&PID_1900&MI_01\3541430222408990_01]

Since repairing INFCACHE also causes re-compilation of nearly 500 .PNF files from their .INF sources, this is quite a lot of work: as you can see from the messages, the elapsed time is over 90 seconds for the repairs.  The log file shows that this has been happening on every reboot ever since the X301 was brand new, and has not been provoked by some later change.  The log file seems to implicate the Access Connections main service, and the devices are all network devices.

 

1. Does anyone else see similar behaviour in their C:\Windows\inf\setupapi.app.log ?

 

2. Does anyone know how to stop this INFCACHE inconsistency happening?

This might be a compatibility  issue with SP2 and access connections.See if you can un-install it in the safe mode and what happens.

It cannot be an SP2 problem, as this problem has existed since the PC was new, when it was Vista SP1.

 

It is not possible to uninstall Access Connections (or, indeed, most other applications) in Safe Mode, because Windows Installer will not run in Safe Mode.

 

However, having uninstalled Access Connections by other means, this succession of errors no longer occurs every time Vista boots.  I still see "Detected INFCACHE inconsistency" incidents at certain other times, such as during an Installation.

 

Does anyone know how to find out what the underlying problem actually is?
