Got the following email from a user this morning.
Every morning when I log in, I get the following error message:

Lyncusb.exe Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (OxcOOOOOO6)
Click on OK to terminate the application

First, any info on what exactly it is? Second how do we solve the problem? There's next to no info out there when I Googled it and what is doesn't help much.

    It's a USB auditing "Service".
    If the user did not install it, and an IT and/or Admin did not - very suspicious!
    Use services.msc to see if it's running as a "Service" - stop it, then disable it.
    Look in Add/Remove Programs for any refereces to it -
    if present - uninstall from there.

    Good luck!

    It audits people plugging in USB sticks - known to create problems.

    Here's a link to M$'s page on that stop error:
