    Anyone good with computers or MSPaint?

    Anyone good with computers or MSPaint? See, there's an annoying error that keeps coming up everytime I try to open my paint program (the standard MSPaint). I'm attaching a pic of what it look likes. I've sent the error report atleast 100 times, and over the period of almost 2 weeks, they have still not fixed the problem. Just wondering if anyone here could possibly help me....

    Thanks!

    That error message usually means you're running a buggy or misbehaving program. But, this is Paint we're dealing here - that's not buggy or misbehaving. Are you getting it only with Paint, or other programs as well?

    You need to click on the "To see what data this error report contains, click here.", and paste that. What you've pasted doesn't do much good for troubleshooting.

    Yeah, us geeks need all the information we can get out of you before telling you to reboot your computer!
    But seriously, paste in the details, and we'll take a look at it.

    Sorry for the lack of info... I actually found a site dealing with my supposed problem, and am going to try it out to see if it'll work.. if not, I'll hopefully copy and past the error data, then inform you guys! Thanks!

    John, I clicked on that, and it WILL NOT let me copy the data. It just shows it, so I can see it, but you cannot copy the text..... ARGHHH!

    Highlight the error text and type Control-C. Then come in here and type Control-V.

    That helps. Here's the fix:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;q185501

    To resolve this problem:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER.

    2. Locate and click the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mic rosoft\Windows\Current Version\Applets\Paint

    3. Right-click the registry key, and then click Delete.

    This registry key is rebuilt the next time that you start Paint.
