RemoteCtl.exe error at startup

By bookie

  1. When I first log on to my Dell desktop running XP home I get the message "RemoteCtl.exe has encountered problems and is shutting down" or something very close. When I click not to send the issue to MicroSoft the box goes away and I don't see anything else weird but I'd sure like to get rid of it. I only set the computer up yesterday and I can't believe I've already found a way to screw it up.

    Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to TechSpot

    That program is normally associated with a TV-tunercard. Do you have that?
    If not, click on Start/Run and type in msconfig and hit enter.
    See if it is mentioned anywhere in the start-options. If so, UNtick it and reboot.
    Check if everything else still works OK.

    Wow addict, you nailed it. The boot up/login goes without a hitch now. I had just installed a USB tuner device but didn't associate remote.ctl with it for some reason. I feel a lot better having a clean startup. Now I'm ready to muddle with it again. Stay tuned.

    Thanks again.

    Incidentally, thanks for the welcone, and sorry for confusing your ranking with your handle, realblackstuff.
