    Hi claudio - Are you by any chance running two firewalls? If so, disable/turn off one of them. This may be causing a conflict. Regards.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I use Norten Internet secruity and microsft secruity center.

    The error message states there is a problem with memories dumping.

    Any advice?

    Cheers

    Claudio

    Hi claudio - When does this problem occur? Most references to this error refer to Windows 2000 :? Are you able to use the PC at all? Regards.

    Hi claudio - I have found an obscure reference to this problem being driver related so try this.
    'Start'>'Control Panel'>Double click 'System'>'Hardware Tab'>'Device Manager'. You will see a list, each with a + beside it. If you click each + it will list devices of that particular type if there is more than one, eg if you have a DVD drive and a CD drive and click the + next to 'DVD/CD drives' it will detail all of the drives. Each list that you open can be closed by clicking on the - next to it.
    What you are looking for, in the listing, is a '?' or a '!'. If you find one then right click on the device next to it. Click on 'Update Driver' and the 'Hardware Update Wizard' opens. Check the 'Yes, this time only' box and then 'Next'. Follow the Wizard through the various steps.
    Regards.
