Run-time error Help!

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
2147418113(8000ffff)
Data provder could not be
initalized

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.

Thanks,
Robert Tutsky

Why no names for said applications?

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

Runtime-error Help

In reply to: The big question.

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
