Error: "Server Busy - the other program is busy - choose "switch to"

Last Modified: 2013-12-19
I'm running a Dell XPS with Windows Vista, and just reciently sert up a network connection to my HP laptop.

I get a "server busy"  "This action cannot becompleted beause the other program is busy.  Choose 'Swith T' to activate the busy program..."

Only problem is hitting Switch To opens the start menu... and the machine slllllooooowwws down to a crawl, with the error message never going away

I am using VIPER spyware suite and think this might have something to do with it.  I turned it off, and the error hasn't come up again (yet).

Any suggestions, ideas about this?  I'm calling Viper Tech support just in case it is related.
