Error Message EVF4003E "Unable to start the daemon" keeps re-appearing

A small window with the error message "EVF4003E Unable to start the daemon. A TCP/IP error occurred - Unknown error" is appearing whenever I start the PC. Only possible response is to click "OK", which makes the message-window go away and then immediately pop up again. Only way around so far is to relocate the small window, which insist on being on the top of everything else, to the bottom of the screen and then ignore it. Obviously I would like to know waht is causing this so that I could get rid of it for good. It only happens one one of our PCs, which all basically are running the same software.

Go into Task Manager then kill any process that begins with "evf".  From what I've found, the process is probably called "evfctcpd".  I haven't been able to find out exactly what that process does or what vendor uses it; however, It has been identified as being a candidate name for viruses and malware.

You should probably run an updated virus and malware scan on that PC.  I recommend AVG for anti-virus and a combination of AdAware and SpybotS&D for malware.

If the PC doesn't indicate any problems after killing that process, you might want to consider finding out where it's starting and deleting or disabling its startup entry.

The answer led me on the track. I believe - but cannot verify - that the problem was due to a registry error connected to a process prefixed "evf", which maybe origins from software used in connection with IBM iSeries server. The problem seems so far to have gone away after using the german PC registry cleaner software named ToolSuite.
