I am using Vista home premium, SP2, 32 bit , Dell 1525.
I stupidly set up a custom view "thing" in event viewer to run as a scheduled task. In frustration I reconfigured the message that pops up when I experience an application error pops up on my screen. Instead of displaying the error code along with the difficulty description, I set up a task to say"please be advised".
I no longer receive the system information that is available in my event viewer in MMC.
What I'm trying to do is correct a overheating touchpad and clean up my system if it isn't too late. I realized but ignored the weight of my mistake until I was in the reliability and performance option in Vista. I have a boatload of informational, application and system notifications. I would say that the please be advised window pops up everytime I log on, anytime I try to run an audio app, at least 6 times an hour. I use my notebook about 8 hours a day for personal use. I just used Defraggler to clean up my HD. It took a while until I wised up and shut off system restore and the VSS copy service.
I then found a bunch of temp files from IE5. I don't know where they came from, I don't use internet explorer 5. I used MIL Shield to remove those files.
Anyway what I hoping to get guidance on is should I disable the Task I created, that is triggered each time there is a legitimate need for notification. I'm wondering how the custom view task edition would best be served, reverting to the proper error messages being displayed. I know How to access the properties, but don't know what to modify.
I may be infected with some type of malware and have posted a topic to that issue under "Am I infected"
I can roll all my issues into one forum if the Moderators see it appropriate.
Please let me know.
