Uncheck the WR Tray Icon.

- The system tray icon is controlled by a small program that's run independent of the main repair program. See the list of programs in Task Manager.

Cool, I have superusers telling me what to do

OK, lets' try this again..  Open up the tweak control panel



Let's see.. Everything is unchecked.. Yeah, looks good.. So what happens?



Dam*  still the same error Kinda tells me I shouldnt have updated to the newest version.. Yes I did see the process running in taskmanager, but I can't
find it in msconfig

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

- Use e.g. Piriform's CCleaner to remove the Tray Icon program from the list of programs that are run by Task Scheduler (TS). TS starts the program with a few minutes delay after startup of Windows.
- Check TS. When you untick that "program launch" box, does Windows Repair remove the appropriate entry in the TS list ?
- Odd. I wonder whether or not you have found a bug in the Windows Repair program that's only showing up in XP. But I stopped using XP some 3 years ago.

OK, thanks for the Ccleaner hint.. That did the trick, I disabled it thru cleaner, then checked TS, and it was in there. I just disabled it for good

I don't know if it's a bug or a nag to update to the pro version

I appreciate your time.. This thread can be marked SOLVED
