Huh? This seems to be a specific software issue and is probably not related to Win 7. When does this happen?

Check the system event log (type "Event Viewer" in the Search box) - it might give you a hint as to what program is issuing the error. If you can figure that you, it'll be easier to search for a solution.

thank you shadow and sminlal. the error apparently has something to do with using a 32 bit program on a 64 bit system.

it would pop up after the desktop gadgets had all loaded. i found a way to disable it by removing some unnecessary programs from the startup menu. i'm sure that is not the proper way to correct this error, but it works for me with no inconvenience now.

thank you for your consideration and expertise.

Just to be clear, the 64-bit version of Windows 7 handles 32-bit programs just fine. The problem you're having must be due to either an error in the program or due to the program doing something a little odd that doesn't quite work properly using the 32-bit API.

I'm not targeting you specifically Gbear, but there's a lot of misinformation out there and people often seem to jump to the wrong conclusions - wouldn't want anyone reading this to think that they can't run 32 bit programs on 64-bit Windows.
