I found this forum whilst googling for an error that was coming up on shut-down. I am almost certain that many people must be experiencing this error because I have seen it on both my laptop and my desktop and they are never networked with each other. It means that I am probably installing something on both of them that is creating the problem.
The original post I found was this one http://www.geekstogo...xe-t154486.html, but this was made Apr 6 2007. It didn't get resolved. I found a few other posts from other sites as well but they didn't get resolved either.
Description of problem:
When I shut down I come up with 2 errors in a row "Application-Error... cmd-exe" once I have cleared both of them it shuts down as normal BUT I have to perform the shut-down procedure all over again!! It is just highly irritating and indicates a program that is doing something odd to the system.
What have I done?
I have done some research and I know the process that is causing this error! I took a screen-shot of the task manager before shutting down. I then compared this screen shot to the task bar after I had cleared these two "Application-Error... cmd-exe" things:
It was cyyyqgt.exe
Sure enough - If I end this process before shutting down then it shuts down normally. The question is: What on earth is cyyyqgt.exe??
*something I have also noticed* When I right click that process on the task manager and select "set priority" it is set to "high". Everything else is set to "normal" or less.
I have googled this and it is not in any search engines I therefore have no idea what it is. I have mcafee and that has obviously not detected anything as abnormal. Windows defender picks up nothing either.
The questions I pose are:
1. Does anyone know what this process is (cyyyqgt.exe)?
2. Can someone inform me of how I go about finding out what program is running this process? I can then maybe uninstall that application.
PS: This may also be related to the fact that my auto-updates function is always turned off when I restart the computer. Possibly it is also related to why Windows defender keeps needing to be reinstalled every time I restart my computer.
