Re: Error

Unfortunately even Bill Gates cannot easily explain these errors properly without a debugger and access to your machine. You will find there is a more information button for further diagnosis. This will bring up an even more cryptic set of numbers, most would give up here and download another game. It could be something as simple as an incompatible graphics card. A memory leak. Or the programmer may not have anticipated your setup. If the game is pirated it may have been hacked which can cause instability. It may just need the latest patch. The best way to resolve this is to go to the website related to this game and read the FAQ or look at the forum there to see if someone else has the same problem

The iPod does not have an ebook-specific reader, or just a text format good for reading ebooks. It's unfortunate, because the style and capabilities of iPods make them perfect for such functions. Sure, you can use the iPod as a portable hard drive to read ebooks on any PC.

Error ID=0xC00D119A, Condition ID = 0x00000000 Web Help

This is a noted common error going back to the early 2004....
This error message (Error ID = 0xC00D119A) means that Windows Media Player was unable to download a Codec it needed to play the file you were trying to listen to.
Beacuse windows media shares your internet settings, I'd start by going to IE's tools->internet options menu
Check the Security tab for internet and go to 'custom level'. See if 'Allow file downloads' is checked - if not, check it, OK out, restart IE and windows media and try the codec download again.

If it works you should be able to set your IE security back to 'refuse file downloads' until you need it again.

good luck ....

Got message access violation at 0x0042DC30 how do i fix it?

Not good. Your disk drive may be getting old and getting ready to crash. Virus attack is also a possibility or It could be something as simple as an incompatible graphics card. A memory leak. Or the programmer may not have anticipated your setup.

try to maintenance or tune up your computer by cleaning the registry then a scandisk/checkdisk and a defragmentation of your harddrive.

If virus problem, it will worsen with time. If you keep getting this error after rebooting, you might consider backing up your files if they are critical to you.

you can also try to fix it by your windows xp bootable disk. by repairing the windows.

Your sound card might be in use by another application.

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with
your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may
encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may
be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem,
see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound
device, and then try to play the file again.

Error when running UrUninstaller's DiskCleaner: Access violation.

Well. there are two ways, first and foremost, don't just grab anhy program that promises to clean your PC (99.99999% are spyware/adware).

Second, remove whatever disc in is your CD Drive (it has an autorun file which this program cannot deal with).
