It looks like this error can be caused by a folder that the task manager requires, not having the correct permissions to allow the system to access the folder unrestricted.  This MS article talks about it and the following Expert's exchange thread also has a solution for it.

Ok, it looks like the permissions are working, but I still can't get my .vbs script to send me a message when the drive is running out of space, does this look correct:

dim objFSO
dim objDrive
dim Cspace
dim Jspace
dim Kspace
dim objEmail
'Set up the disk space for the lower limit of space available before it emails phil
Cspace = 500000000
Jspace = 100000000000
Kspace = 5000000000
'configure the settings for sending email.  This may be different on the server,
set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
'send using indicates how the message is to be sent.  2 means to send messages y using the smtp service
' on the network
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
'smptServer isIP address of the smtp server through which messages are sent
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "172.16.32.52"
objEmail.Configuration.fields.update
'Set up message settings
objEmail.From = "monitor"
objEmail.To      = "pagesysadmin@municode.com"
objEmail.Subject = "mcc-db-01.internal.municode.com"

set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

set objDrive = objFSO.GetDrive("C:")
'Check to see if the drive is available
if objDrive.IsReady then
      'The drive is readable so get the available space and compare it to
      ' the constant for the lower limit of space phil wants to check against.
      'If it's below the limit, email him
      if objDrive.availableSpace < Cspace then
            'msgbox(objDrive.availableSpace & vbcrlf & Cspace)
            objEmail.TextBody = "C: Drive has " & objDrive.availableSpace & " bytes left."
            objEmail.Send
      end if
end if
'Check to see if the drive is available.  Not all places will have a K drive
set objDrive = objFSO.GetDrive("J:")
if objDrive.IsReady then
      'The drive is readable so get the available space and compare it to
      ' the constant for the lower limit of space phil wants to check against.
      'If it's below the limit, email him
      if objDrive.availableSpace < Jspace then
            objEmail.TextBody = "J: Drive has " & objDrive.availableSpace & " bytes left."
            objEmail.Send
      end if
end if
'Check to see if the drive is available.  Not all places will have a K drive
set objDrive = objFSO.GetDrive("K:")
if objDrive.IsReady then
      'The drive is readable so get the available space and compare it to
      ' the constant for the lower limit of space phil wants to check against.
      'If it's below the limit, email him
      if objDrive.availableSpace < Kspace then
            objEmail.TextBody = "K: Drive has " & objDrive.availableSpace & " bytes left."
            objEmail.Send
      end if
end if
