Unspecified Error - Windows XP

By Nuradonai

  1. While doing anything on my computer(playing games, surfing the internet, etc.) I get an error message that keeps popping up in the background that says "Unspecified Error" and has a red circle with a white "X" next to it. If I click OK on it it goes away for about 3-4 minutes and then another one will pop up.If I don't click OK, they will multiply. I've attached a hijackthis(v2.0.2) log to this post and am posting an imageshack.us link that is a screenshot of the error below this. Can someone please help me? I would appreciate it a ton. Thank you.

    try to view the logs (run-> eventvwr.msc)

    the system log should have Errors and warnings -- copy one or two and paste
    into a follow-up
