    I have a cz-17 iBuypower valkyrie laptop that I got over a year ago. For a month I had an error with windows error reporting and when that I was fixed I noticed in my even logs that I was having another error. It is too late for me to restore to a previous point, here is the even log:

    Faulting application name: SCM.exe, version: 11.12.10264.0, time stamp: 0x508a2a08
    Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.3.9600.17055, time stamp: 0x532954fb
    Exception code: 0xe0434352
    Fault offset: 0x0000000000005bf8
    Faulting process id: 0x1bfc
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cfd6da66079b78
    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\SCM\SCM.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\KERNELBASE.dll
    Report Id: bf0932f9-42cd-11e4-bef2-6036dd98b30d
    Faulting package full name:
    Faulting package-relative application ID:

    Anyone have any ideas about how to fix this? I tried sfc scan but it didn't find any corrupt files, and I have heard terrible things about using system registry repair programs to fix this.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Zac

    It looks like it is trying to find a program (SCM), which is no longer on your computer.
    Have a look in Programs and features, and see if anything relating to SCM is there. If so, delete it. It could be a left over part of a music program.

    Also, look in the task manager, under the Start.up tab, and, if you see an SCM entry there, disable it.

    There is also a possibility that it is a trojan. It has been listed as such in the past.
