Error message while desktop is loading

Hi, I am having a problem with Windows 7 64-bit loading the desktop, I get and error message that goes some thing like:


C:\users\luc\appdata\XXXXXXXXXXXX.inf is lost!

I believe it is related to the chipset driver. I have already reinstalled all of the others but the chipset driver setup app will not run properly. If I run the old one it just prompts for a restart and doesn't do anything, if I run the new one it just claims I am using an unsupported OS. Is there any way to remove the chipset driver from the device manager or some other location? I am unsure of which one it is. I'll try to get a screenshot next time.

This issue just popped up out of nowhere it was running fine one day and the next this.

    Thanks, I actually was able to figure out what was causing the issue. It was Windows Task Scheduler. For some reason on of the Asus setup utilities for the drivers had added it. Very strange because it seemed to come out of no where. Nevertheless when I deleted the unusual scheduled task the error message disappeared and everything seems to be running just fine. Thank you for your advice.
