I also am having the same problems as others with adsubtract. I followed the solution. opened the file hosts with notepad and added the 127.0.0.1 store. trendmicro.com at the bottom when I pressessed save it said it could not save the file "hosts" so i just exited out and it said save and I said yes. I still had the bufferoverun error . I then proceedd to uninstall adsubtract. when I did that I could not get on the internet with explorer at all. I did a system restore to the 16th. still have problems. please help!
When the error message somes up don't click close. Leave it on, the program still works.
If you do click on close program you will not be able the open explorer. To solve the the problem and open explorer, all you need to do is to restart adsubtract and you willl be able to opoen expolrer.
It works every time.
From IE toolbar, click tools, internet options. Then click the connections tab. Click lan settings button. uncheck the radio box that says Use a proxy server.
IE will work again, but with no adsubtract. A possible reason the fix didn't immediately work for you is that the dns cache needed to be flushed. accomplish this by clicking start, run, cmd.
in the black box, type ipconfig /flushdns
then press enter.

Any time I've seen this error appear when playing a game it is caused by a bad graphics driver. I would suggest going to the website of the retailer that your graphics devices comes from and updating to the most recent driver and giving it a shot.
Many different things can cause buffer overruns. This is a common attack that hackers use to exploit bad C code. In this case, since it's a video game...I'm going to say graphics driver.
You can actually see an example of the same behavior here:
Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot% \system32\drivers\etc, and then click OK.
Rename the hosts file to hosts.bak.
Create the new default hosts file. To do this, follow these steps:
Right-click an open space in the %WinDir%\system32\drivers\etc folder, point to New, click Text Document, type hosts, and then press ENTER.
Click Yes to confirm that the file name extension will not be txt.
Open the new created hosts file in a text editor, for example, in the Notepad.
Copy the following text to the file:
For Windows XP or Windows Server 2003
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 188.8.131.52 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 184.108.40.206 x.acme.com # x client host
I recommend running an anti-virus and anti-spyware program. In the case this does not work, the next solution is to reinstall Windows XP. This problem is associated with a computer possiblly corrupted with a virus or trojan.
Let me know if you need any suggestion on anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, or any questions about reinstalling Windows XP.

adsubtract "phones home" everytime it is started. it looks to intermute.com which then refers to store.trendmicro.com (the purchaser of intermute). trendmicro recently changed their website to disable adsubtract (either wittingly or unwittingly)
Here is how to fix:
1) first find your hosts file. it is usually located in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
the file is "hosts" and it has no file extension.
2) open the hosts file with notepad.
3) add the following line to the bottom: 127.0.0.1 store.trendmicro.com
Adsubtract will work once again if you follow these instructions, but you will no longer be able to visit the website "store.trendmicro.com" unless you change your hosts file back the way it was.

A buffer overrun error is a somewhat generic error in the sense that buffer overruns can occur in the OS, OS subsystems or any application that you may be running. So what you have posted here does not necessarily tell me where the issue lies. Here's a progressive approach to solving the issue.
Buffer overruns are runtime errors in the program code. They occur when a program attempts to write more information to a particular "array" than is allowed or expected. MS Windows has a number of security patches specifically designed to fix these loopholes in their OS. So to start with, I strongly suggest visiting the Windows Update site and patching your Windows operating system until the website tells you that there a no updates available. Sometimes you will have to go through the process a few times before all the updates are successfully applied.
Next visit the Microsoft Office update site (office.microsoft.com/officeupdate). There is also a link to it on the Windows Update page. Update your Office application in the same manner. Once that's done if you are still experiencing the problem, you'll want to launch the installer for MS Office from your disk and attempt a repair.
If that fails, perform an uninstall of MS Office, then manually delete the Winword.exe file from your PC and reinstall the software from scratch.
This progressive approach should fix whatever the issue is.
a bit late for the answer, but maybe it can help others...
This usually means the file has not been closed properly following a hard shutdown of the server (power outage?). It could be that the file needs to be recovered, or simply checked by Filemaker.
In both cases, you need to open the file with the client version of Filemaker Pro 8, then close it again, and the Server should happily open it thereafter. Here, we keep a copy of Filemaker client on the server for these rare occasions.
