kb891711 has caused an error in mmsystem.dll

In reply to: THE FILE MMSYSTEM IN WINDOWS ME (DELL)

just go to start-run then type "msconfig" (without the quotes) then at system configuration utility window, go to the startup tab then look for the specific error message (for this one it is kb891711). uncheck it then click on apply then ok then restart. this one worked for me. Happy

Hi,
I use Windows ME and yes I did have the same error problem being returned by "Dr Watson"
The file [Kb891711] relates to a OLD "Micosoft Update".
Found an artical which gave me how to correct same.
I Searched the Internet for information and found Microsoft had on January 2005 updated the Kb891711.

To correct same ==
[1] Look in "Add & Remove" and "Uninstall" the Kb891711.
[2] Use your computers Windows "Update" feature to update to the new Kb891711
[3] Used "Dr Watson" and found now all is OK!!
