RatingThis is caused by the Veritas file 'tfswctrl.exe'. From the Windows desktop click on start- search Go to the ‘All Files or Folders' option and type in “tfswctrl”. Once Windows has located the file, rename their file type suffix(e.g. tfswctrl.exe to tfswctrl.ex_ or tfswctrl.sys to tfswctrl.sy_). Darlene
RatingMade by Veritas, came pre-installed on my IBM ThinkPad A31, this app frequently crashes when I "un-hibernate" the laptop Scott
RatingIt was installed on my Dell computer which includes Sonic CD writer software. DO NOT install Direct CD as well. The system will be unstable because of conflicts because both are loaded at startup. beltwayrider
