After doing a disc scan, I now get the following error on start-up with windows xp home version:

Direct Access Component has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvience.

Here is some more tech info that might help:
EventType : BEX P1 : tfswctrl.exe P2 : 1.3.37.0 P3 : 3d348d82
P4 : kernel32.dll P5 : 5.1.2600.2180 P6 : 411096b4 P7 : 00010f8b
P8 : c0000409 P9 : 00000000


C:\DOCUME~1\VALUED~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER5ff0.dir00\tfswctrl.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\VALUED~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER5ff0.dir00\appcompat.txt

Anyway to fix this?

TIA,
Greg

WinTasks Process Library

tfswctrl - tfswctrl.exe - Process Information
Process File: tfswctrl or tfswctrl.exe
Process Name: HP DLA Packet Writing Software

Description:
tfswctrl.exe is an essential process for HP's packet writing software which burns data to CD's using Microsoft Windows explorer. This program is a non-essential system process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.

this suggests removing the hp cd burning stuff...or at least stopping it from being in your startup options

msconfig is really more a trouble shooting tool.

Consider uninstalling the application in add/remove if you do not use it, ir perhaps disabling it with a startup tool like Mike Lins control panel

start > run > msconfig then go to the start up tab and find that tfswctrl thing and stop it


I have tried to use this start > run > msconfig several times.

I get an error message that I cannot change it unless I am the Administrator. I am! I tried logging on again as a different account and there is only one account, the administrator. I tried several things, the same thing happens. :whistling:

I am now burned out after spending the past hour trying to figure it out, starting and restarting. I'll be back in the morning and start "fresh".

(All of this because of the Direct Access Component problem. )
