I had someone come in with a weird error message I have not been able to find or reproduce and it's been going on for month soff and on. Does anyone know what this could be? I attached the image to the thread. Apparently it resizes the desktop icons when it appears as well.
EDIT: It did not upload for some reason. Here is the upload link: http://tinypic.com/r/25fskf7/6

Yeah already have run all diag tests (hardware) and virus scanners. Nothing ever shows. can't find anything in the running startup list that looks supicious either. It'd have to be either a running startup program or a service though I would think.

Did you look in Task Manager for odd processes ?

Run Error Checking ?

You may have to do a Windows Repair.

Is this a Hewlett Packard system by any chance?

I have never seen this error. I don't think it's common, I think it's pretty much very rare. But, is the system you have a Hewlett Packard system by any chance? If it is, that could probably be the case. But if it isn't, then I have no clue as to why you are receiving this error.
