  1. I had this window pop up whenever I shut down my computer.

    dwwin.exe fails to load because Windows is shuttng down.

    Something like that, heh. Now what can I do with this?

    As an initial step,go into msconfig/Start up and uncheck everything except the Firewall/AV.

    If the error stops,then one of those start up programs is the cause.

    If that doesn`t work -

    See Norms posts here - HERE

    "Had this problem, here is what I did:

    Open regedit, go to:
    HKLM_SOFTWARE_MICROSOFT_WINDOWS_CURRENT VERSION_RUN

    If you have a logitech input device, or a Gravis gamepad input device, you need to
    modify the value of the registry key so that the application starts up in *belownormal*
    processor priority.

    Example:
    start /belownormal c:\windows\system32\Grxp4exe.exe /init

    "start /belownormal" is the addition you will make to the beginning of the line..."

    You`ll have to read the thread to find the exact keys you need.
