    I frequently get an error screen while running some of my
    programs. It says "(name of program) has encountered
    a problem, and needs to close. Sorry for the
    inconvenience."

    Does anybody know what this means, or what the "problem"
    is likely to be? I never saw it until I installed
    XP. Any help greatly appreciated.

    it'smajor and a lot of people are having problems techs
    will be working on it,you'll get a reply for the fix via
    updates so check your updates often if your having
    problems.

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately this error message
    does not suggest sending a report to MS. It also
    doesn't give a "yes "no" option. It just shuts the
    program down instantly -- which is what is so irritating.

    I would still appreciate help with this.
