I’ve now followed up on the suggestions made here.
@w2k4eva, I think your implications--as I read them, that (1) this is probably not simply a Dell problem, and (2) these 1904 informations may just have been generated by having opened Help files--both appear to be spot-on.
I was able to check Event Viewer on my parents’ computer this evening (Acer Atom with Windows XP Home, POS registry fix applied, all updates installed). There I found the same six Error listings as my Dell machines, confirming that it is not merely a Dell-related problem.
(Plus, my “3000” Dell is actually a “3000n,” and my “E520” Dell is actually an “E520n,” meaning I ordered these without an operating system. I have Windows XP Pro installed on each, so they don’t even have the Dell “factory install image”).
I don’t know of any negative consequences to these Errors, but it is interesting, especially whatever happened on that one Dell machine after 4/8/2015 that eliminated the six Errors:
Okay, so whatever it was must have been after 4/8/2015 10:57:43 but before your next boot...
So that’s what I’ll be thinking about.
[other related information: these machines all have AVG (not Avast), and all are run in administrator mode (no other users or accounts added)]
