Event ID 41 Task 63 error

Since installing Win7, home premium, 64bit, on a computer (6 days ago)  I have been getting this error daily.  Computer initially used with Win XP with no issues--this problem occured after upgrading memory from 4 GB to 8 GB and installing Win7 clean install.  Memory passed memory test so I don't think the memory addition is the problem.

Early instances involved BSOD while running but after running system file checker which found and corrected errors I have not seen the BSOD.  Now the problem shows up on a cold start after what appeared to be a normal shut down.

Here is data:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

To close this thread out --the problem appears to be resolved. 

I was using the MotherBoard default RAM settings.  I made a change to RAM timings as suggested by G.Skill technical support.

What I learned is that it is not just overclockers that may need to adjust RAM timings.  Even though I was using RAM specifically listed as qualified for my MotherBoard the MB default settings did not work.
