Hi TomGentilella,

1.        What exactly is the issue on your computer?

2.        Have you made any software or hardware changes on your computer prior to this issue?

Adding to Gerry’s suggestion, you may follow this link to uninstall Daemon Tools:

Removing DAEMON Tools Lite

Note: Using Third Party Software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.


Hope the information helps.

yes, i do have a further problem.  when i got rid of the daemon things, my computer is not working properly.  it has to do with screen resolution.  and when i try to change it to a higher digit, it just doesn't work.  i am sending this to you via initially a blind site and now the screen is just not the same and have no idea of how to get it back as it was before.   unfortunately, i did not have a backup disk, so basically i am working in the blind site.  if u can give some advice, as to what i should do, i would appreciate it.   i even did system restore and yet it brings me back to blind window.  it's workable, but much slower than when i had it before.  best wishes, tom

hi gabriel, thanks for your advice.  i followed your instruction but there was no CHKUPD listed under scheduled task.   unless they use a different name or long code.  i went through some of the long codes and opened them, but could not find CHKUPD.  and even though i had my computer totally tuned last evening, they could not find it either.   oh well, i will just keep having to click cancel and it disappears immediately.  have a nice day.  tom

You have to read the (full name) of the file. See if the file looks something like this, or similar: (ProgramUpdateCheck Trusted Software ApS C:\Program Files (x86)\File Type Assistant\TSAssist.exe /chkupd).

Please reply, I'll help you solve this problem once and for all!
