Error message "Severe"

  Rogerthedog 22:21 11 Aug 2004

Just after my PC boots up, a small box pops-up
titled "severe". The error message says something like "error displaying background".

I usually just press Cont/Alt/Del & delete it from the task manager. Anybody had anything similar?
Seems like a virus to me but the antivirus shows clear.

OK - I highlighted the error and it the process it highlighted was IDriver.exe...........haven't a clue what that is. (I'm no techy expert by the way)

Right - I've discovered that this "severe" error is linked to my other post regarding Windows Installer Problems. IDriver.Exe is something to do with that. So although this problem isn't really solved yet, it should be if I can solve the Installshield bug.

Start MSCONFIG from run box in the startup tab look for the program and remove the tick if you can see it
