Just ran into something I've never see before and can find no information on. :thumbsup:

I ran through a system restore and on boot it comes up to the XP Welcome screen, beeps and gives the error: 'Unable to load service configuration object: curtainssyssvc.serviceconfiguration.' You press 'ok' and Windows loads normally. no more errors, no obvious issues.

I Google'd the error, but couldn't find anything on this particular message. Anybody know anything? -- esp. on how to make the darn thing go away?

*ha-ha* I figured it out :thumbsup:

The service was form Curtains for Windows by Authentium > a program the user didn't even know he had and must have got from his ISP. We just told it not to start in MSConfig and it disappeared.

Sorry to bother y'all.

Thanks for informing us what the results were.

We all learn from such info. That info may help someone else in near future.

The only easy day was yesterday.
