I'm finding too many old XP machines where owners think it's software or OS and it's just the old machine. Often I can correct many flaws with just a few things. Ready?

2. TAKE GRIF'S ADVICE -> http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6121_102-0.html?threadID=378815&tag=forums06;forum-threads
3. Still trouble? Use Black Viper's site and go back to defaults on services.
Still problems? Tell more. Such as if you installed TEATIMER or such.
I am getting the (program) "has encountered a problem and needs to close error report with a number of programs on my PC."
It started with Outlook (2003) then Sony Media Manager and now Mailwasher Pro. I can use Outlook to send and receive messages OK and the error only appears as Outlook is closing down. My Mailwasher Pro update won?t run at all and produces the error report when I try to run it.
In the last couple of weeks I have tried to download a number of programs, some install and run OK and some produce the above error report when I try to run them.
I was able to download, install and run Media Monkey and Anvir Task manager OK. The problem seems to be with some problems and not others.
The nearest event I can think of that coincided with the start of this problem was the installation of a program called Evernote which I have since uninstalled.
Extra info: I HAVE used Black Vipers site to alter my system services and I do use Revo uninstaller to uninstall unwanted programs.
My system is Windows XP home sp3
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
