error message

Thank you for your response, I may have misled you slightly; the error was apparent prior to me obtaining a registery cleaner, I actually purchased one in an attempt to remove it.

With regard to your reply _ how will I know which display driver to seek an up to date driver for?

you did not mislead me

I understood that you tried (and unfortunately failed) using the registry cleaner; now onto the other matter, the following information is from the prvious source (which I can't state here-Policy rules), but it explains the easiest way of determining which driver to install.

" first you have to determine which graphics contoller you have on your system.

1. Right click on "My Computer" and select "Properties".

2. Select the "Hardware" tab.

3. Click on "Device Manager".

4. Click on the + sign next to "Display Adapters", you will see the name of your Graphics
Controller, write it down.

5. Double click on the Graphics Controller to open it's properties.

6. Write down the Driver Version and the Driver Date, click OK, then exit Device Manager.
7. Open your browser and get the current drivers for your system:
http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx or
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us
8. Click on "Download Drivers"

9. Where you see "Start Here", click on "Graphics Driver".

10. In the next box, click on the Graphics Controller that is on your system.

11. Next box, click on your operating system, then click "Go".

12. On the page that opens you will see the Driver Version and Date. If the Version and
Date are newer than what you currently have on your system, download the driver.

13. Be sure to read the "Driver Installation Hints Document" before you download.
