    When starting my machine, running Windows XP, I get an error message in Windows saying Runtime error 123 at 00406F1C. I can just 'OK' the box and carry on, and there doesn''t seem to be any knock effect. I suspect it's a registry error, but can anyone advise me on how to find out.

    Thanks

    There must be more to that error. Is there a filename to the error?

    There really is nothing else. That error message is displayed in a Windiws dialogue box, all you can do is click 'OK', and it goes away. Doesn't cause any other obvious problems, it's just annoying popping up every time. Plus it must actually be trying to notify of a problem, and I'd rather fix it than not.

    Thanks for your reply.

    well, have you updated your critical updates from Microsoft?

    Also run a HighJackThis log to see if there is anything running in startup.
