    v2.50.25, XP Home w/SP2, and Latest MS Updates

    Since updating my PCs with the latest patches from MS, I've been logging the following Event in the "Application" log:

    Event Type: Information
    Event Source: HHCTRL
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 1903
    Date: 6/22/2005
    Time: 5:35:43 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer:
    Description:
    The description for Event ID ( 1903 ) in Source ( HHCTRL ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=45839.


    I've been getting these at almost the exact same time each day. A little detective work indicates that it coincides with the completion of my daily NOD32 disc scans (when the log file is written). Any others ?

    Yup, I got it, too. The HHCTRL refers to the HTML Help ActiveX control, and it started only after I got the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896358 patch from Windows Update on Windows XP.

    It seems to be an informational message only, but I am not sure what the end of a scheduled scan would have to do with HTHL Help. It could be a minor bug in Microsoft's fix, for all I know.

    Me either. This is the relevant part of the response that I got from MS support when I reported it to them several days ago:

    HHCTRL is HTML Help ActiveX control. Some third
    party web applications will use it to enable cross-frame navigation.

    So you see it with the ending of a NOD32 scheduled scan as well ?

    Nothing here. Everything normal.

    Yup. Two different computers, one running WinXP Home SP2, the other WinXP Pro SP2. The times correspond, down to the last second.

    I'm OK as well, maybe not having SP2 is the reason for me. :rolleyes:

    It happens to me too, always at the end of a planned scan with NOD32 [2.12.3]

    my system: w2k SP4 with all patches

    Happens on Windows Server 2003 SP1, too; it began, when NOD32 upgraded to version 2.5.

    It seems to happen every time the NOD32 scanning module (in my case called in the command line version to scan incoming mail) runs. So the Logs are filled with that event (about 400 a day)!
