HI I hope someone can help me. I have a Pentium 4 Processor and Windows XP. My computer was really slow so I got rid of applications I didnt think I needed but it made it even worse - I couldnt work it so installed all the hardware again and it seems to be working just about. I keep getting errors though like when I open AOL
"A runtime error has occurred do you wish to debug? Unterminated string constant" I click yes then get
"Runtime error again.... Line: 490 Error: Object Required" I click yes then get
"Runtime error Line: 213 Error: Object Expected then I go on to AOL computer check up and get
"Runtime error! Program:...Files/Common files/symantec shared/app core/appsvc32.exe R6025 pure virtual function call"
I have norton security and have paid for the subscription so Im sort of stuck with it although Ive heard bad things about it. Please help Im at the end of my tether it takes about 20 mins just to load the PC!! I feel like starting again but this is supposed to be a good PC!! And I hope this works cus Ive typed it out once it didnt work!

Hi, to do the hyper-link thing ...

Highlight the URL in tha Address bar, then go to Edit and click on Copy. Next, go to this box on the Thread where you want to put the link and click on Paste. Then when you post the response the link will appear as a "Click here".

Cheers.
