When trying to log on to Windows Int Exp I get "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way ".This prevents access to how am I supposed to apply the promised hotfix that is promised in the next XP
Service Pack 2 update.. and, does anyone have any idea when this might be ?
Thanks for your help

By "Int Exp" do you mean "Internet Explorer"? If so, try a repair of Internet Explorer, by locating the ie.inf file in C:\WINDOWS\inf folder, when you find it, right-click on it and choose "Install" from the context menu. You might need your XP installation CD.

Also doing a scan with the usual anti-spyware utilities like Adaware and Spy S&D, might not be a bad idea.

if the advice from MAJ doesnt work out, try using a different browser to get the updates, ie. firefox or opera.

once you have got the updates, you should be able to use IE again

You can only get XP updates via IE

Do you have the google toolbar installed? If yes, try uninstalling it.

Thanks for all your tips.
I've discovered that my problem is caused by "the use of /GR and the /MD compiler switches, and the version of the Msvcrt.dll file is 7,0.x ???
Iknow that I have 8 files of this version of Msvcrt.dll 7.0.x
A supported hotfix is available (contact MS @ £85 + VAT )
I've heard that XP users are allowed 2 free calls to MS support.....can anyone verify this ?
As I said before the bug prevents access to Int Exp so Ican't see how a patch can be applied.
Thanks again for all your thoughts on this
