I have a year old (purchased october 2005) HP media center pc running win xp. Shortly after boot or after logging in as administrator (or limited user account) I get an error message window stating that KBD.exe has encountered a problem and needs to shutdown. As far as I am concerned this error is not a problem, just annoying. There is no problem typing with the wireless keyboard.
I have learned on the web that KBD.EXE is a program that allows one to re-program the "top" keys on the hp keyboard, and that if you don't want to re-program these (I don't) this error will not cause any trouble.
I'd like to get rid of the message entirely...
In older versions of windows I knew how to find and change which programs were launched at startup (as I assume KBD.EXE is), but I don't know how to do this with XP. Any hints on modifying start up program lists in XP so that I can take KBD.EXE off the list? I don't want to remove the program completely since it is (very slightly) possible that I might want to re-program these keys in the future.
TIA for suggestions
