Having ticked an earlier thread as solved I have to admit I was a mite previous.
Still there in inglorious profusion. The only effect [my guess] is a bit of foot dragging and at worst a system hangup.
the properies of this error message, I've copied off screen.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The description for Event ID ( 1 ) in Source ( nview_info ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: NVIEW : rundll32: WAIT_TIMEOUT, while waiting for a read to clear - resetting read event ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Does that give a better idea of what is wrong and best of all an idea how to cure it?
You were correct. I made the beginner's mistake of updating the drivers without uninstalling the corrupt ones first.
Absolutely no more nview_info errors since.
I.E. has been a different matter and seems to be the cause of "application error" or "application hang" causing long battles to unfreeze the computer.
In fact I.E. has been tetchy in a way that AOL browsing never was. I seemed [then]to be able to open link after link and never worry what was already there. They always closed as and when needed. This is a different story and if it persists I will fuss about it with btinternet's help.
