I get this error when I log in to any of the limited user accounts:
hDevice=ffffffff

It doesn't seem to affect anything but just wondering what it is. I get it on my kid's account and the guest account. I can tell you what's running if that will help let me know.

Hiya

Are you still having this problem? If so, in the account's that get this error, go to Control Panel | System. Device Manager. Are there any entries that have a ! or ? showing? You may want to doublecheck against your account that works, to see if that has any problems as well.

Also, do the limited accounts have EasyTune installed? You can post the startup programs for all three, if you can. Just seperate each with a -----

Go to Start | Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs.
Copy/paste the list here.

Regards

As eddie was hinting at, it's likely a program which is attempting to automatically start on login, but can't start because the user has limited rights -- probably something like a video card utility.
