Computer Help?

Postby barnburner » Mon Oct 27, 2008 6:15 pm

I keep getting this error message popping up. Nothing will work, until I x it off, and I have to do it twice, before anything will work. Everything is ok for a bit, and it starts all over again.
I've run a virus and malware scan, nothing shows there.

Any ideas?

What kind of porn are you looking at when it pops up?

Just accuse the virus of racism. It will get sick of you and leave.

Turned out to be a problem with windows media player. Anytime i would click on a folder with a video file inside - this message would pop up.

reverted to the prior version of wpa, and everything is fine now.

thanks.

In my expert opinion you've got yourself a bamboozled WMP. I'd try reverting back to a previous version.

Macs are great, but really since XP, windows has been almost totally problem free for me.

Windows is much more popular than Mac, therefore it stands to reason that more racists use Windows, therefore it's bad and shouldn't be used.

I'd make sure you are not using your toaster. I mean it's great for burning CD's, but kinda dangerous.

I personally like the retracting cup holder that my computer comes equipped with.

My new one has two of them, but they are too close together so you can only use one at a time

No that just means you have the special reinforced cup holder for larger beverage cups. Like the ones you get at gas stations.
