  • windows vista 520   the only quess i could come up with would be it started appearing after i started using a P.C. Cleaner called mighty Max 2011, it has only been a week or more since it started,  its not there now ,hasn't been for a while.  it wil just come up on a empty screen ,,i did try safe mode, opened it with last time there was no problem.

  • This is referring to a program that is trying to load. The switch is really a command line parameter for the loading file. It is trying to tell the program to run in auto mode. The question now is to identify  the program.

  • You have downloaded HP Photo Creations.  It will start after that . Uninstall it.

    This is not a Dell Issue.

  • i don't have HP

  • Dell Model?

    OS Version?

    Service Pack Version?

    Printer Model?

    This is not a Dell issue it is a corrupted windows issue.

    Could also Be Malware or failed windows updates.

    The Event Log would have clues.

    1.       When exactly do you get this error message?

    2.       Does this happen while working on any specific application?

    3.       Did you make any changes to the computer before the issue occurred?

     

    If the issue occurs on startup or while working on any particular program then I would suggest you to set your computer in Clean Boot state and check if the same issue occurs.

     

     By setting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7:

    Note: After clean boot troubleshooting step, follow Step 7 in the provided link to return your computer to Normal startup mode.
