I got Microsoft Works 2000 set up on Windows XP. Whenever I logoff, it
displayed an error message"

Header - "End Program - Wkscal.exe"
Body - "Ending Program...please wait"

It prevent the system from logging off or shutdown unless I select the end
program button. Appreciate if anyone can advise how I can remove this problem.

wkscal.exe is the Microsoft® Works Calendar. wkscal.exe starts everytime
you start Microsoft® Works or the MSworksTaskLauncher.

I haven't figured out how to stop that from happening.

End the process before shutting down to avoid the error message.

Open Task Manager...
Ctrl + Shift + Esc | Process tab | Locate wkscal.exe and right click it |
Select End Process | Click YES | Close Task Manager

Hope this helps. Let us know.

Hi Wesley

Perhaps you can advise how I stop the process from starting automatically in
the first place. In many instances, I did not start Microsoft@Works at all.

Thanks

caleb,

See if there is a shortcut to wkscal.exe in either of these two folders.

Paste these in the Start | Run box one at a time and click OK.

%allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

%homepath%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

If there is a shortcut to wkscal.exe, delete it.

If not post back.
