Run-time error Help!

by rtutsky / November 19, 2005 10:40 AM PST

Hi everyone,
I've got problems with two applications. When I attempt to run them both applications give me a Runtime-error. They both ran perfectly in the past and weren't used that much then. Now, I need them and they won't run. I have no idea what I've added to my computer before I had this problem. Please help. The Error states:

Run-time error
Data provder could not be

The other error that I get with the other application is the same but with a different error number.

What can I do to correct this problem and have the applications run properly? I have repeataly removed the applications and re-installed them with no luck running them.

The computer I am using is a Compaq Presario
-256 Ram
-Windows XP - Service pack 2 installed
-CD/DVD reader/burner
-DSL Internet

BTW, all of my other applications seem to run just fine except for these two, which do need an internet hook-up to work properly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why no names for said applications?

It seems this could be vital info for solving the issue.

Runtime-error Help

Hi All,
The program that gives me the error is Market Research Wizard. It's a program I have used to research dropshipping products for my business. It's a program from the site World Wide Brands.

The other program is called Launch MediaSearch.exe and will also give the same error with a different error code number.

Also I noticed that when I try to use the program: SBC Self Support Tool I get an error that states-

(In the blue bar)
Internet Explorer Script error

Message states:
An Error has occurred in the script on this page.

Line: 116
Char: 4
Error: Opject doesn't support this property or method
Code: 0
url: file//C:ProgramFiles/SBCselfsupporttool/vendors/SBC/content/template/driver_dev/BroadBandAsst/connDiag.html

Do you want to continue running on this page?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
