    Hi all, I have a recuring problem, that happens every time i boot up. I get an error message saying `the background taskserver encountered a problem and had to close`. The PC seems to work OK but I know something must be wrong! I went into the system config utility and disabled everything on startup, re-booted and it still happens. I really need some sound advice now, can anyone help?? Thanks........ :rolleyes:

    Try turn off Non-Microsoft Services:

    Start - Run - type "msconfig" and press Enter.
    - click on the Services Tab.
    - check "hide all microsoft services"
    - uncheck all non-microsoft services.

    Apply - Close - Reboot.

    If the error goes away, then you will have to use deduction to find the culprit.
