An example of action causing this event is inserting an USB drive in one of the USB ports.
This event is generated by the Windows 2000 Mount Manager (MM), which is part of the PnP (Plug and Play) service. It is the kernel service responsible to assign names to the volumes attached to the system. For each volume, it stores a name that is unique and is permanently identified with the volume, even after the volume has been removed from the system. You can find a list of the volumes that are or had been attached to the system at HKLM\SYSTEM\MountedDevices Registry key. The driver calls IoRegisterPlugPlayNotification which generates events 134 at an interface arrival and event 135 at a removal.
