This error may occur if the virtual memory is set too high.

You may check the virtual memory settings.

Set it at 1 to 1 ½ times the size of RAM installed.

I keep getting an error report stating, " =1180947459&LCID=1033&OS=5.1.2600.2.00018300.3.0"; How can I fix...

What you're seeing is a message from Microsoft ONLINE CRASH ANALYSIS ( You are using WinXP and I suspect that you're located somewhere within the US. You seem to be having a problem with Internet Explorer or possibly with an Office 2007 or Office 2010 product.

Please read the following page from Windows Error Reporting:

The error message you're seeing could actually be related to countless numbers of stupid Windows problems, so please follow these instructions:

1. MAKE SURE that you have the MOST RECENT updates for Windows XP and Internet Explorer. If you haven't installed Win XP SP3 yet, download it and install it right away. SP3 will reboot your system; do NOT interfere with this process.

2. Next, run Windows Update and let it install whatever patches and patched patches you are missing. This process could take HOURS, so start it and check back every 15 minutes in case you have to click on an "OK" button.

3. Make SURE that you have ALL of the patches and updates for EACH application in Office. Update Word FIRST, then REBOOT THE COMPUTER. After that, update EACH of the remaining apps (XL, Outlook, and PP) but REMEMBER TO REBOOT THE COMPUTER after EACH update.

This could be a SIMPLE fix, or a VERY complicated problem. Please understand that there is no EASY or SIMPLE way to determine EXACTLY where the problem is located, because Microsoft uses some of the basic IE files throughout other MS products, which is stupid in the extreme, but that is "The "Microsoft Way" of doing things.

Good luck with this; you could have a LOT of work to do to eliminate this. Please do NOT simply wipe the HDD and reinstall Windows; you can learn a LOT from this.

I have a Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE film scanner. Every time I try and load-up the setup disc, the set up install starts and then comes up with this error message: An error (-500 : 0x8004ace8) has...

It is quite possible that there is another piece of software that is clashing with your Plustek OpticFilm scanner. It is hard to tell which software is having a clash. If you remove that software from your system you will obtain the desired results. I suspect the SP3 of Windows XP may be responsible for this because Microsoft has indicated that Windows XP SP3 is not for everyone. If you install Windows XP SP2 uninstalling XP SP3 your problem can definitely be rectified.
Good Luck!

Changing Windows Disk XP Home Edition/SP2 to SP3

Try downloading SP3 again and save to desktop, then re-install (replacing 1st. installation). There might have been a glitch in the first download.

Xp pro sp3 setup problem for optional windows components

It looks like you have a copy of Zone Alarm on your PC and Windows XP Pro SP3 is not liking it. One thing that you can try is to disable Zone Alarm by right clicking on the icon that it creates on the lower right hand corner of the screen and see if you can find a "disable" or "shutdown" option. After doing so, then try to install again. Another thing that you can try is to completely remove Zone Alarm, try to install SP3 again, and if it installs, re-install Zone Alarm. However, I think the easiest path is to disable Zone Alarm temporarily. Let me know if this helps you or not.
