    The exception Breakpoint
    A breakpoint has been reached.
    (0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x04fe57d2.

    Click OK to terminate program
    Click CANCEL to debug the program

    I have attempted both as well as an unistall and reinstall of the program with no change.
    I tried acouple of other solutions offered on other sites with no success. I was told about your site from a guy I consider smart about computers. He assured me I would not go away unsatisfied.

    Well....while i can't provide you with a direct solution to your problem i can offer you a temporary "Band-Aid" solution until someone else comes up with a true solution for you....try using Yahoo!'s Web Messenger service until someone has some idea about how to tackle that issue.
