Session “CldFltLog” failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000022

We normally use Windows with paying little attention to any errors or warnings that come from the system. The periodic monitoring of system logs is good for gauging system health. The Windows Event Viewer tool shows log of error, warnings and general information thrown by the system. The event viewer can be started by following command (I use Windows10).

Windows+R (Run) > eventvwr.exe

Noticed the error appearing quite often.:


Session “CldFltLog” failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000022

A short online search showed that this is a quite ubiquitous error. The remedies provided by professional help staff were heart aching, for example one guy suggests to reinstall the windows. However the real problem – as noted by several users – is the starting of Microsoft cloud “OneDrive” app. The error was regenerated by closing and reopening the app. So it seems not to be major issue.

Quote from a user in the below given link observes:

I simply disabled OneDrive in the Startup tab of Task Manager and restarted.  No more kernel event error.  While the event viewer was still open, I double-clicked on the OneDrive.exe file in Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive to start it manually.  Immediately, the ‘Session “Cloud Files Diagnostic Event Listener” failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000022’ showed up again.  I will assume it’s a benign error, so I’ll leave it be, but I do hope that Microsoft will look into it and stop advising customers to do clean boots, safe-mode boots, create new user profiless and re-install Windows.  You have obviously pinpointed the source of the error (Thank You), so the rest is up to them to fix.  It’s sad to say, but based on all the various COM and other event viewer errors that continue to appear throughout all the Windows builds, I don’t think MS will consider this to be a priority. 🙂
