Default getting error on bootup

Every time I boot up my computer, I get the following error message:

"ATI External Event Utility EXE Module has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

and it asks me if I want to submit a report to Microsoft.

What is this? Should I worry about it? Is there a way to fix it?

Thanks for your forthcoming help.

Default Re: getting error on bootup

well, ATI will mean it is somthing to do with your GPU, and the message suggests it could be part of the driver suite.

uninstall and reinstall your graphics drivers from the AMD site.
EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k @ 4.4GHz // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked ASUS GTX 660 Ti // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black
