    I have upgraded two machines from XP home to XP Professional and then added
    them as client computers in my new SBS domain. Now, whenever someone logs on
    to these machines, the following error appears:

    "hkcmd module has encountered a problem and needs to close"

    All Windows update have been applied.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Tribecka,

    Thanks for your posting.

    From the description, I understand that you get the error message on two XP
    clients, "hkcmd module has encountered a problem and needs to close", when
    users log on the clients. If I'm off base, please let me know.

    The file hkcmd.exe is installed by the Intel 810 and 815 chipset graphic
    drivers. If you want the Ctrl+Alt+F12 or similar keypresses to access
    Intel's customized graphics properties, you need it, otherwise not.

    If you are using Graphic drivers released by HP. HP has written a SoftPaq
    that updates the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 driver and resolves the issue.
    Download the SoftPaq and read the instructions carefully before proceeding.

    If this is not your case, please contact your Graphic card vendor for the
    last driver, then try uninstalling \ re-installing the graphics drivers and
    see how things go from there.
