    Hiya

    Are you still having this problem? If so, are you logging onto the internet or is this before you get there? Either way, lets take a look at a log. go to http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.


    Regards

    eddie

    The actual error message is:

    Server Busy

    This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy.

    Choose Switch To to activate the busy program and correct the problem.

    Once you click 'switch to' the start menu pops up and nothing happens.. weird!

    I am using Firefox and the nVIDIA firewall. I have also had problem w/ my computer crashing if I leave it on overnight to complete a download.

    It seems my problem was caused by the nVIDIA network access manager or firewall... once I removed these programs the problem disappeared.

    not sure what the problem was but it came and went on it's own and for the meantime it is gone when I reboot, but may have been taken off by one of the scans that I did, either spysweeper or AVG....
    But I'm sure it's still out there, doesn't seem to be a big deal just annoying.
    It only happened to my desktop main computer, but it seems to be gone now.
    Many thanks guys

    I didn't necessarily SOLVE my problem but I found that after I removed the nVIDIA network access manager/firewall the problem went away... so perhaps that is the problem. I have heard of a lot of problems with that software on nvidia forums.

    Thanks for the info about the Nvidia program. I'll remember that in case others have the same problems. :)

    I'm not using the nvidia firewall. Mine is Norton Internet Security. The error message "The action cannot be completed because the other program is busy" happens nearly every time I try to click on a link in an e-mail in Eudora. It correctly tries to open the web page using the Firefox browser but also insists on holding up the process while it also opens MS INternet Explorer which I never use by choice. Annoying and time consuming. How do I get this irritation to go away?
