  • This message comes from the .net framework. You run a program which tries to convert a bool value to a String.

    Use AutoRuns to disable all 3rd party tools, until you found the causing tool:

  • Hello brul.

    For better response, I suggest you to ask your question in the Windows Answers Forum at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8.
    According to waht you wrote, the problem seems to be due to an error occurring during a type conversion performed by a program: where does this message come from? Did you start any program before seeing that message?

    Bye.
