'Server Busy' error

By murphyl ·
Every day I get this (Exclamation Pt in a Yellow Triangle) message that stays on my desktop, dead center, until Shutdown. No matter what action I take, it has no effect.
The message: Top Line says SERVER BUSY.
Body says: This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy program and correct the problem. There are 3 response buttons Switch To, Retry or Cancel. The first 2 don't work and Cancel is greyed out.

You can try running msconfig to see what's running on startup. There's probably some malware that has installed itself on your pc. I'd uncheck anything that doesn't look like it belongs. If you're not sure don't uncheck it and go out and download a couple malware utilities like SpyBot SD or Ad-aware. I'm sure there's utilities out there, but these two should get the job done. Just do a search on google for them. Basically, something installed itself and now it can't connect back to the mothership. Go figure. If people are going to write malware at least they could do it right.
