Alright, so, I started getting this error about a month and a half ago, after running useless TuneUp Utilities (Do NOT get this program, it resulted in about 5 errors. That I know of...) The error message is as follows.

dsca.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services

Application has generated an exception that could not be handled

Process id=0x9c8 (2504), Thread id-0x9d4 (2516).

Click ok to terminate the app.
click cancel to debug the app.




And then when I click cancel to debug, I get a new error message. A problem with my JIT debugger, but I'll worry about that after this.

What I've done so far:

Nearly nothing. I googled the problem, but I couldn't find anything with my error codes, so no. And I did stumble upon the page somewhere on this site that told me to click on a link and scan for a fix. Turned out the program for the scan was Registry Booster, which I already have, which did not fix it.

Any ideas?


P.S. Dell desktop running XP SP 3


EDIT: Okay, so I found out a little about the dsca.exe. It appears it's part of my Dell Support utility. So I uninstalled it, and reinstalled it. No such luck. It appears the file is not necessary for the program to activate, or even on start-up. But, deleting the file couldn't be done because Dell SUpport is always running; and I don't know the Process name so I can end it. Since no ones has figured out how to answer my question, would you be able to figure this out for me?

The dsca error relates to some Dell Remote software installed on your system, you can Google more info on it.

Yesterday, I searched for a way to handle this and ultimately I found only crumbs of info, with nothing approaching what I would consider a resolution. You can review the various links by clicking on my link below.

"This startup entry is started automatically from a Run, RunOnce, RunServices, or RunServicesOnce entry in the registry."

That link was able to help me remove the registry entry. I know that it's usually risky to go into the registry (espesially since I didn't back it up) but it told me the exact key, the program still works, the problem has stopped, and all is well.

Thank you very much Louis for the google link (that was the second link through yours), and thank you garmanma for your link as well.
