error- lcfinst.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close

I am using XP pro.  This error appears upon login.  I thought that maybe it could be a tsr loading but I eliminated everything including uninstalling my netware client to try and isolate this.  I have been told that it has something to do with an intel client or something but can't imagine what.   I thought it was a system32 file.  When I click on more info I get:

Error Signature
szAppName: LCFINST.EXE szAppName: 0.0.0.0 szModName: unknown szModVer: 0.0.0.0 offset : 00000000


When on click on the technical report or the error report contents I get a path to my local documents \temp\WER3.tmp.dir00\lcfinst.exe.mdmp

and
 
\temp\WER3.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt

thanks

Hello mangiola =)

Does it happen in safemode also ??
if No then plzz try this,

Goto Start>Run>msconfig>Startup, and click on Disable All
now goto Services section, and tick Hide Microsoft Services
and now untick all those third party services
restart and now check if the same problem ??
if NO then u can re-enable each application\service at a time to trace out the culprit one !!

manager from the system. Then test to see if the issue is resolved. "
