DDE Server shutting down error

Tonight when i rebooted to finish a clean up with East Tec Eraser i got the following message.

DDE Server is shutting down. ?
Never seen it before so is CPF3 the culprit ?

XP Pro 2.3ghz 1gig RAM

I remove all east tec entries from Defense+ and ran it again and let Defense+ find all it wanted, ran ETE again rebooted and all seemed well. :wink:
