Lately error messages are showing up more frequently and they are getting weird, IMO.

For example, this messages which seemes only to pop up on http://scifiwire.com/

"Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library - -

Program: C:\ Program files\ Internet Explorer\ iexplore.exe
File: dbgheap.c
Line 1132
Expression _CrtIsValidHeapPointer (pUserData)

For information on how your program can cause an assertion failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts.

(Press Retry to debug the application)

Abort - Retry - Ignore"


None of those options do anything and the computer freezes forcing me to re-boot.

A few days ago this pair of silly error messages came out of nowhere:

"hpqthb08.exe Application error - The application failed to initialize properly
(0xc0000135) Click on "OK" to terminate the application."

"DiscUpdateMgr.exe Application error - The application failed to initialize
properly (0xc0000135) Click on "OK" to terminate the application."

I discoverd these, although annoying, are nothing serious. I'm at a loss on how to make them go away though.

The HP updater seems to be running all the time and it's causing problems. I think I was able to uninstall it and remove it from start-up.

Yes and no...sort of.

I rebooted.

I sometimes receive the error message at scifiwire.com, but most of the time it now freezes without the previous error message. Now I see something from my Internet protection product: AVG Internet Security. I.E. becomes unresponsive but I am able to close it and try again without a reboot.

I'm going to reboot now to see what error messages pop up.

I take it that means a "definite maybe"... :)

Uh, yes.

No error message on re-boot...finally!

scifiwire.com still gets stuck. I wonder if it's a local thing on that site. For SciFi folks they're not too bright with computers...

For the moment, I'm satisfied with how this thing is working.
