General-purpose logging service.
|Windows 7 edition||without SP||SP1|
|Display name:||Common Log (CLFS)|
The Common Log (CLFS) service is a kernel driver. If the Common Log (CLFS) fails to load or initialize, the error is logged and the computer attempts to restart with the LastKnownGood configuration. If the LastKnownGood configuration fails, Windows 7 startup also fails, and the boot process halts with a Stop error. If you disable this service, Windows 7 will fail to start. Do NOT change this service startup configuration if your computer is working.
