Windows 7: taskhost - Debug (I think)

08 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 x64
taskhost - Debug (I think)

Hi everyone,

First of all, I'd like to thank you all who are interested in helping me.

I have turned off my computer last night and everything was working fine except when I turned it on about an hour ago, it started to give debug messages on the screen. On the window that pops up, states the following text.

Window title: taskhost

Window content: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instrance of an object.
at taskhost.Form1.Timer2_Tick(Object sender, EventArgs e)

I do not know what this is, and what it means. In my little google search most people state that this is an integrated crucial part of Windows 7. I do not know how to solve this problem. Your help is apperciated.

P.S The window pops up every 14 seconds, over and over again. I have bunch of windows lined up on each other.

Thank you.

Was your computer working normally prior to this episode? Did you install any applications or updates that may explain it, such as mouse and/or keyboard drivers? If so, and they are Microsoft devices, what driver version do you have?

Windows 7 Ultimate - 64-bit | Windows 8 Pro - 64-bit


If this just started to happen the do a System Restore if that didn't work follow this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps,
