I have a Dell Vostro Laptop with Win 7 32 bit that keeps giving me a couple errors

Not sure what happened but these 2 executables keep generating errors; 1 on boot : GfxUI.exe application error Process ID=0x464(1204) Thread=0x4b8(1208) and another that pops up some time after boot pcdroui.exe application error as well. Any ideas? I found some issues mentioned to do with the video driver but have yet to find a solid answer.

Happened after a normal shutdown as far as I know...

    The first one is related to your graphics card, I would download the latest driver available off of the dell support site and reinstall it.

    The second one is associated with PC Doctor. Check the dell website while you are downloading the graphics driver for either an updated version or the current verison to reinstall, you will probably find it in the diagnostic section.

    Could have been any number of things, recently applied updates, software install or removed. One of those things that probably would be hard to track down.
