Clicking the OK button on these dialog boxes just produces 2 more exactly the same. After 15/20 attempts to close these boxes I went to the Task Manager to stop the program running. When I did that, the program closed on the screen but was still listed as running in the Task Manager. The program itself seems to hang just before the error messages appear.
At various times, other errors have appeared:
"Could not allocate memory for image"
"The recycle bin on C:\ is corrupted. Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this drive"
"Out of memory. Resource OFCCD not found."
Occasionally there is a "Windows shutting down" dialog box but the thing shuts down so quickly it is not possible to read what it says.
I contacted Chaos Software twice. They initially gave me instructions for clearing the data cache and when I responded with a long list of my actions followed by the errors, they said it was a system fault and I should run Tune Up Utilities.
This is a new computer. Though I suspect it was running demo programs in the shop. I have run a complete virus scan - Eset security.
I showed the correspondence with Chaos to the computer shop - he said "do not run Tune Up Utilities - I will look into it" but a week has gone by and he hasn't got back to me.
I put a question on Microsoft Community and got an answer about adding IRPStackSize in the registry. Once I tried to do that I realised that the person who'd replied had just copied half an answer from somewhere else in order to sound like an expert but failed to give the location or the options for the value. After a great deal of digging I finally found a full explanation and realised that probably the value I had put in was incorrect (but not longer in front of the offending pc). So before I go back tomorrow to try something else .... do you have any suggestions for me?
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
