hi, recently my pc has been freezing at the desktop immediately after log in. I looked in event viewer and found reference to 1XConfig.exe - Application failure. Would anyone have any idea what to do about this?

Some ifno from a tech site:

System Tray background task which gets installed by the drivers for
Shuttle Technology products (now part of SCM MicroSystems). SCM
MicroSystems is an OEM manufacturer - that is, it makes/assembles the
original products which are then sold under various badges by other
companies (e.g. DataFab,Hewlett-Packard, Apple, etc..). The products
include USB card readers, USB CD-Writers, USB Zip or Flash Drives, USB
LS-120 drives, etc.. ICONFIG sits in the System Tray and its sole
purpose seems to be to provide connection and status info about your
USB device.

Recommendation :

On some systems, and depending on which reselling manufacturer has
adapted the original drivers, ICONFIG hogs resources and also causes
crashes. Disable with The Ultimate Troubleshooter if you have
unexplained problems..."

The problem has also been reported with wifi devices.

You could try disabling ir at statrup:

Start > run > type "msconfig" without the quotes.

Clck the startup tab, scroll through the list until you find the entry and untick it.

This will prevent it from loading at startup, but will not remove the software from your system.

hi crosstrainer, thanks for your reply. I did find the first part of your answer when I searched on Google but I did not find much else, so your advice about disabling on start up looks like the way to go thanks, but I'll wait a day or so in case of other replies. I'll also try to do a bit more research,one site suggested that it was to do with the intel software that runs the wireless and recommended deleting that software and using Windows Zero Config but when everything has been working fine for so long I'm always worried about changing things.

Sinbads, thanks for your post. I have had a look at the site you recommend and will read the page in more detail later. It is looking more likely to be to do with my wireless card (i'll have to find out whether it is integrated on the mobo or not).
