    The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) did not load: dam

    Does anyone know if this is a normal behaviour on restart or boot of Windows 10 Pro?

    This appears every time on Windows Event Viewer Log System tab. Service Control Manager 7026 Event Task Category None.

    Administrative Events is otherwise 0. This appears only as an Information. But I want to know if this is normal? I've seen it before but didn't really concentrate on it.

    Windows version number is 1903 (OS Build 18362.329)

    - <Event xmlns="">
    - <System>
    <Provider Name="Service Control Manager" Guid="{555908d1-a6d7-4695-8e1e-26931d2012f4}" EventSourceName="Service Control Manager" />

    <EventID Qualifiers="49152">7026</EventID>

    If you see third party software drivers listed you can uninstall and reinstall the software.
    For Windows you can perform Windows updates.
    This is a Microsoft Wiki:
    For the most part these can be ignored without a major impact on performance.
