I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit RTM

I keep getting this about an hour or two after I boot up. I just click on "Close program" every time. It doesn't seem to do anything, but it is a bit annoying seeing that pop up every time I boot up.

Anyone know how to sort this out? I did a Google search before posting this, and no results at all.

Go to realibility monitor and you may find details of the crash that is causing this and since when.

No luck there. I checked for a solution, it didn't bring anything up. It just says it's an "APPCRASH". I know the program file now though: sdiagnhost.exe.

A-ha! Googled the program file, and found a forum post which contained how to disable it! I also found this description about it in the Task Scheduler:

The Windows Scheduled Maintenance Task performs periodic maintenance of the computer system by fixing problems automatically or reporting them through the Action Center.



I'm guessing this is a fairly unimportant task, as I never use the Action Center, so would it be safe to disable it?

If you don't use Action Center or Reliability Monitor I supose it's fine if you disable it. If things go wrong you always can use System Restore.
