Virtual Disk Service encountered a problem and needed to close
I get this error when I log into my system.  I am unsure of what is causing this issue.
I am running Windows Server 2000.

Also in the event viewer I get the following:

Reporting queued error: faulting application vds.exe, version 5.2.3790.2, faulting module vdsbas.dll, version 5.2.3790.0. fault address 0x00011dcf.

Virtual Disk Service (VDS) implements a single, uniform interface for managing disks. Each hardware vendor writes a VDS "provider" that translates the general purpose VDS APIs into specific instructions for their hardware (Targeted for Storage Area Network(SAN) ).
Microsoft has implemented VDS providers for basic and dynamic disks. This brings functionality to basic disks, such as online growth, that formerly applied only to dynamic disks.
