My m/b is an MSI and various MSI programs such as 'MSI Live Monitor' are installed.
After adding another PC User (non-Administrator), on booting up to that user, the following message boxes appear.
First msgbox: - 'The Handle is invalid'
Clicking 'OK' brings up an identical msgbox. After'OK' - the second msgbox appears.

Second msgbox: - VBIOS - ' Flash_MMIO_MAP deviceIoControl error'
After clicking 'OK', the MSI Live Monitor box appears momentarily, showing that it is now loaded.

Note that opening up as the main user (administrator), there are no problems.

Hi, I copied the above from a search on google as I am getting exactly the same problem on my PC. I couldn't find a fix on google so thought I should try you guys. Thanks in advance for any help offered.

Hi bluesjunior.
Near as I could find it's the MSI live update causing the error on a limited permission or non-admin account.
I think you already knew that though. :thumbsup:
Take a look at this thread.
You might find something at MSI's site as well.
Personally, I find the function useless. If I need it, I'll get it myself but that's just me. :flowers:

You need to disable the MSI Live Update software when Windows start up if you do not want to continue to see those error messages.

Logon with your admin account, right click on the MSI Live Update icon, choose "Preference".
choose the "Configuration" option and uncheck "Launch Live Monitor when windows start up"
click Apply and Accept these changes.

That should eliminate the error messages when the limited user signs-on but since you are disabling the check for updates service you will need to check for MSI updates manually.
