TMachInfo: what is?

Two curious error messages appeared in my System log, and I could not find the keyword TMachInfo on this support site. Only cause I might be able to attribute to it is having disabled COM+--but this is a freestanding computer, not in any network.

 

1. Cannot start service TMachInfo on computer '.'.

 

2. TSS Load: could not communicate with TMachInfo service.

 

Only cause I might be able to attribute to it is having disabled COM+--but this is a freestanding computer, not in any network.

 

Will gratefully appreciate any insights.

Re: TMachInfo: what is?

I notice that this question is viewed quite a bit, but no one answers.  What is TMach Info, and why might it be generating the log entries as listed above? As always, insights gratefully appreciated.

Service Station is not very popular, Alvin. From what I read here, many users just turn it off and visit the web site from time to time to see if there's anything worth updating. To stop the message, try this. Open the System Configuration utility (msconfig.exe). On the Startup tab, uncheck Service Station. It might look like ToshibaServiceStation.exe.
