For future reference,

Paint can be opened by opening Start, selecting Run... and typing mspaint

Try fushing the DNS.
  • Go to Start and open Run.
  • In the Box, type in cmd
  • A black box will appear. Type in: ipconfig /flushdns
  • This should clean your DNS cache.

Artellos,

I have flushed the dns.

typing mspaint in the run box, it says that it can't find paint. I must have deleted it a long time ago thinking that we didn't need it. I am almost positive that's what I did. I have the windows xp cd, isn't there a way to get paint back using that?

I did that once for the games like solitaire, minesweeper, etc once.

I have noticed the last couple of days, that the error I have been receiving doesn't happen as often, but it still occurs frequently enough to bother my parents and I. Take a look at this topic I have going also. The 2 topics seem to be becoming one or might be related. Maybe that will help you some.

Now, should I just wait to see if flushing the dns solves the error problem? Like I said, it happens less lately, but still happens.

Thanks,

The following should fix your paint problem:
Please input your Windows XP CD.
  • Go to Start and open Run.
  • In the Box, type in sfc /scannow
  • It will now do a scan, let this run for a while. It will replace any faulty files.

Now, should I just wait to see if flushing the dns solves the error problem? Like I said, it happens less lately, but still happens.

Correct

I did that "run" but it didn't work, however, I clicked "Install Optional Windows Compenents on the main page of the Windows XP Install screen and was able to find paint under "accessories" and installed it again. Thanks,

I have taken a picture of a webpage with the error, but how do i get it under 100K? It won't upload.

Sorry,

Artellos,

I had an idea. I just uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it. So far, I haven't gotten that error and I have tried going to the same sites that the error would always pop up on. I have tried several other sites, still no error.

I guess I took the easy way out, but at least it has stopped. It was very annoying and I hate using internet explorer.

Thanks for all your help and I'm sure we will talk again,

Keep up the good work!

I wouldn't call it the 'easy' way out :)
A good thought / action, keep up the good work yourself too :)
