    USB Arbitration service failure on Windows 7

    reapur Enthusiast

      Hi,

      I've been having this problem since the day I installed Version 7.

      The service won't start and the VM's give an error that the arbitration service won't start.

       

      I now understand that the SonyEriccson could be the culprit. I uninstalled. still having the problem.

      I have gone thru the usb. drivers in \windows\system32\drivers and verified that they are indeed the originals that came with windows 7. They seem to match.

       

      Can someone help me out? Is there a way to reaplly these drivers? I can't even find them on the 7 disc.

      What is vmware looking at when this error is generated? Is it a registry entry I need to remove, is it a driver I need to delete?

      Any ideas would be most welcome.

       

      Thanks
