Don't understand "resource" error alert??

by coxalexia / March 28, 2005 6:32 AM PST

I recently have been getting an error saying:

"Failed to load resource from resource file. Please check your Setup."

This happens everytime I am online lately, and automatically shuts down the website I am on.
I am rather computer illiterate, so the easiest answer would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you!

There appears to be

a number of different reasons for this, caused by different applications.

Without knowing what applications/programs you use, it is difficult to help you.

Goto Google, and type in

Failed to load resource from resource file. Please check your Setup

and click Search. You will see the many different posts on this error.

Good luck

Okay... the new progams that I have downloaded recently (as in the last three days):

Yahoo messenger
Infranview (to downsize photos)

I think that is it... I am using a lot lately, and it started when I posted a bunch of photos from the website on Sunday night (3/27)
Does this help any?
I uninstalled a program that came with yahoo messanger, literally called extras, and it hasn't done it to me again... but just in case it does... I thought I would get some info on the subject.
Thank you very much by the way.

your right on track helping us help you. I too have installed Irfanview (which is highly recommended as a freeware graghics editor)but have not used it yet. I have not been to or so can't offer any comments about those sites. You took the logical approach and uninstalled one of the last programs installed, then watched the behaviour *beautiful*. Here's my 2 cents, I would go to Yahoo's forum on "extras" if it exsist, or set a restore point...reinstall behaviour. If the same thing happends again, then you can go back to the date before the second installation. Hopefully someone else will have some more input for you.
