    I can't open some attachments to emails or PDF files in a weblink. I get the following error message: "The application failed to initialise properly (0xc00001d) clik on OK to terminate application". I haven't clue what this means or whether it is a problem with my Windows XP Sp2 or with Adobe or what. Any suggestions will be welcome. Will142828

    Thanks for the suggestion. I am sure you would not recommend running this if it was harmful, but the warnings that accompany it when I open it make me a bit wary about doing it.

    thanks again huggie54. Eventually a friend helped me run a Malware program and to follow the Microsoft instructions for repairing a fault on the pst.files in Outlook. the problem is now solved.
