Yes there are some errors on that page, madboy33™. And a pop-up and a pop-under. Turn off your script debugger, that should help.

Popup Heaven...

The problem is with the website...

I think to dsiable the message appearing you have to go Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Disable script debugging...

Click "ok"

The message does not appear when i 'Click there'

Try a System Restore??

Put your windows CD into the CD ROM and hold the shift key (the one with arrow pointing up, just above the Ctrl key on the left of your keyboard). Holding shift for a few seconds will stop the Windows CD from auto running, but the drive will still spin up to read the disk then spin back down again. Once it has spun down you can release the shift key.

Now click Start/All Programs/Accessories and choose Command Prompt. Type in

sfc /scannow

and hit enter. This will check and replace any damaged system files.

Are you running as a user or Admin?

Ok I will assume you are getting no error messages.

I am on an NT pc at the moment so working from

Try going Add/Remove Programs and in windows componants look in accessories and untick Paint.Click OK and then go back to the Desktop and Reboot.....

Reinstall Paint by ticking the Box and see if it loads.
