How do I resolve Windows stub error code?

By gloriousglenn ·
Hey,

Every time I reboot my Vista laptop I get the following error message:

"Microsoft Windows stub has stopped working"

If I click 'OK' everything seems to be fine, but it's just annoying. Does anybody know how to get rid of it please?

Cheers
Glenn

You must have Retail Full or Upgrade Vista installation DVD to do this.

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc. If you do not restart your computer from the disc, the option to repair your computer will not appear.

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc:

3.

If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.

4.

Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5.

Click Repair your computer.
6.

Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
7.

On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.

If Startup Repair is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer:

1.

Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.

If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
3.

On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include Startup Repair as a preinstalled recovery option.)
