Hello and welcome to BC. This is a Linksys wirelss router issue. Read this please. Fom the last BC post here

Thanks to the member sonnytwins, here is a solution for the 'WMP54GSv1_1.exe' error that TiffanyH was experiencing:

"I used to get the same error popup as TiffanyH, until I got the fix (from Linksys customer support chat session), here are the details and the fix:

router: WRT54GS Linksys wireless router with Speedbooster
network card: WMP54GS
OS: Windows XP home
the problem: each time the PC shuts down, get multiple annoying error popups relating to wmp54gsv1_1.exe. Sometimes happens at startup too. The router connection stills works fine though, it's just an inconvenience I guess.

- uninstall the network card
- reboot
- when it comes back up, it'll bring up a "found new hardware" popup
- choose the "automatic" option
- insert the CD that came with the network card, then wait a few seconds
- voila!

The idea is to use the Windows utility for the network card, not the Linksys one. This worked right away for me, no more annoying error popups upon shutdown, and the internet connection is as good as it ever was.

BTW, this response had nothing to do with the virus/spyware issue that originated the thread, it's only about the error popup wmp54gsv1_1.exe (which appears in the last couple of paragraphs in the thread).

Good luck everyone!"

Thanks for the tip sonnytwins.
