On Startup, a box appears notifying that ps2.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. I will add that I do know that ps2.exe is an HP program that manages the extra programmable keys on their PS2 keyboards. I do have an HP pavilion (a450ne) a Pentium 4, 3.0 Ghz with 2Gigs of RAM. I Googled the preceding trouble notice and received so many conflicting opinions, many declaring to just delete the app, I turned to this forum for help. I am using a Logitech G-11 Gaming Keyboard that has 54 progammable keys! Happy to be a member, appreciate any help from my peers.

Hello DJtimeflies. Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

If the program closed, and you did not experience any effects, then it likely that you can disable it from startup with any consequences.
  • Click on your Start Menu, then Run.
  • In the box type msconfig .
  • Click on the Startup tab.
  • Uncheck the box referring to ps2.exe.
  • Hit OK.
The error should go away. I wouldn't suggest deleting the file in case you do need it.

With Regards,
The Panda

Msconfig is mainly for testing purposes. To permanently disable startup items , you're better off using Codestuff Starter or Autoruns but it's a little more complicated
