I am trying to figure out some things going on with my husbands computer. Every startup A black screen comes up "taskeng.exe". 

I have tried to search on my own and figure it out. I have went into task scheduler, but I am afraid I may be doing more harm than good. After going into Task Scheduler and disabling several things that I did not deem necessary, The taskeng.exe window is coming up and staying up, and there is a new popup

"Program Files (x86)\Browersafeguard\BrowserSafeguard.exe Windows cannot find c:\Program Files (x86)\Browsersafeguard\BrowserSafeguard.exe Make sure you have typed the name correctly and then try again. OK

When I press OK for this window, the taskeng.exe window disappears...


There is also another pop-up that says 

"Server Busy. This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose Switch to or retry. 

Either choice appears to do nothing.

I have run several programs including



Super Anti Spyware






and have logs if you are interested.


otherwise I will follow whatever instruction and advice you can give.

Should you decide you don't want it and want to remove it, removal is quite straightforward through Control Panel, but here is an illustrated guide -
