A runtime error like that can be caused by certain spyware or Malware....ran into that problem myself the other day on shut down. However...in XP, when you are using multiple users at the same time, it's not A-typical for there to be trouble like this. Multiple user accounts have been known to cause all kinds of networking issues. Does it do the same thing when he is online and you switch over to your account and try to get on?

Then I would say it's an internet explorer issue. What I mean is, that the internet explorer is reading as "in use" which would cause a runtime error. Or something to that affect. I'm inclined to ask (though I'm sure you already have) have you done all your Microsoft updates. There may be an internet explorer security update that is missing.

It probably is mostly up to date, but new updates come out every week or so. I'm not saying it will definately fix it, but it's a shot. If it doesn't fix it, try Using a Mozilla or netscape on your ID and letting him stick with Internet explorer. Pretty sure that will work.

Uh.....forgetfulness? I dunno. *laughs* I don't really see a problem with that accept that I'm a tech and if my computer has an error message I want to fix it....not just ignore it or avoid it. But...it's not going to hurt anything to do it that way, and for all I know it could be the only way to fix the problem.
