Just checked my Outlook Express. When I finished and clicked the X in the top right of the page, OE went away but the Illegal Procedure box came up again. In the top left of this box were the letters Msimn.

In Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me)
The error signature is listed on the affected program's Help menu. 1. On the Help menu, click About Microsoft Program name.
2. Click System Info, and then double-click Office 10 Applications in the folder tree.
3. Click the Office Event/Application Fault folder.

The error log appears in the right pane.
You can also read this information in the DW.log file.

Went to System Info in Word and could not find an Office 10 anywhere. Then got two hits for the DW log but when I clicked on them it said "the file is damaged or is not a valid Dr. Watson log file"
Is this for the "illegal Procedure" or for the "somethings running in the background" when I try to scan?

Wow, the computer just did a weird thing. I just checked the OE, then closed out of it, then the Illegal Procedure box came up again, and at the bottom of that box, it said Collecting Information about ____, and it kept changing, then disappeared. I have never seen that before.
