There now followa a massive amount of gobblededook.......................................
then C:\DOCUM~1\John|LOCALS~1\Temp\7e_appcompat.6t and it goes on and on and on....................................

This happens often with different programmes, and therefore not peculiar to a specific one.
The dialogue box states that the 'programme has experienced a problem and will close, possibly losing any data not saved'
I can't find anything to help solve this one, even after ploughing through volumes of 'help' books and mags. etc
Anyone help, please?

Are you running any Anti-Virus? is it up to date and also a Firewall?

Yes = Ntlworld's AV, FW etc

I would have suggested a AV on your Computer not just relying on the ntlworld one. You should do a online scan

Thanks for the AV links. The 3.CA Security Advisor is free and seems very thorough. Can this one be downloaded and installed for regular checks?

They are only online scanners, But they may do a free one. As Any of the above picked anything up on your computer?

My NTL software did not report the spyware that 3.CA Security Advisor found, but did show continuous disinfectation in their log, so that's working!
3.CA Security Advisor did find 12 spyware, but did not disinfect them since they wanted a six month ( £8) payment to clear them, and £8 per 6 months thereafter.
However, having tried all of these, once more I had the same problem with another piece of my software as explained in my initial posting!
I do thank you for your help, but it seems that I am stuck without a solution so far!
