    Appreciate some assistance.

    Ran Dr Watson, and in the diagnosis area, the following entry appeared:
    "PROCHOOK.DLL has altered Windows system files.
    Module name: PROCHOOK.DLL"

    Any ideas of what this is all about?

    Thanks for the help.

    This is no reason for worry. Many programs 'alter the system files' after install, and by itself this is no reason for concern at all.

    You should use DrWatson only if you need to troubleshoot a real problem, and even in such a case the error message itself will often be much more helpful than whatever the good doctor may be able to tell you... :D

    Relax!

    Greetz,

    TonyKlein,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Had a couple of Fatal Exception Errors, and read about DrWatson, etc. Thought it might come up with some sort of clue as to the FEEs. Instead, got the diagnosis posted above.
