I can close it and continue using computer, but it reappears every time I start up.

I just meant that did you read the information provided at the hyperlinked word which I gave you in my original message -- the word must be clicked to open a page for reading.

I reread it and realised I had not tried your Pstat.exe suggestion. Will do that this evening and see if I can figure it out.

to be continued....

thanks for the continued hand-holding!!!

I sent the error into help & support and got this in reply. I still have no idea what it's referring to. I haven't tried to install anything lately, so don't know what driver they mean.

Ensure that the program user has sufficient privileges to access the directory in which the driver is installed.

but here is a couple of links for your to read:

VIA Arena Forums."

"Intel."

Sorry I couldn't help pinpoint the anomaly but it appears you're going to have some serious research to do.

Digest this information
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 9, 2004 5:18 AM PDT

At http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_20885079.html is a pretty wide swath of information to look over.

Here's what I suspect. Your hardware might be some custom collection of parts. It may have an out of date BIOS or some overtaxed PSU or just a BUM INSTALL of Windows XP which used what CDs and Drivers that were found in the box. That may be easy to correct with latest BIOS, a monster PSU, and fetching latest motherboard and other drivers.

Wishing you the best of luck finding it.

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm afraid that's not it, though, as XP and everything else came installed and bundled with new Dell I bought 6 months ago. Never had this strange anomaly until a week or so ago. I'm wondering if it might be some sort of spyware that tried to install incompletely. However, I regularly sweep my system with Spyware Blaster and Spybot S&D and nothing has shown up. Also have Norton Utilities which checks and cleans my system routinely...nothing there.

Very peculiar.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
