I'm not sure if these problems are related, but it sure seems suspicious.
First, the Application logfile shows that .NET Runtime throws an Event ID: 1026
Application: HPAudioSwitch.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: System.IO.FileLoadException at Hardcodet.Wpf.TaskbarNotification.TaskbarIcon..cctor()
Then, there is an Application Error with Event ID: 1000
HP Audio Switch is a program developed by HP and it used to change Audio settings. It converts audio files among multiple known and not-well-known formats. It is similar to Bang & Olufsen Program. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version).
If you are not using the Program and would like to uninstall it, you can uninstall it and it will not affect your computer performance.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
