    Proxy Desktop?

    I've gotten a couple of errors of late involving explorer.exe with ref to a Proxy Desktop...

    Is this a Win2K error, or something I'm running?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Do you have Norton Antivirus? If so that is the problem. Just to see if thats the problem, Disable Norton Antivirus long enough to see if that stops the error.

    As CowboyDawg also suggests, it it probably not Windows itself, but other software running on your PC that causes the problem. Here is a general method of checking if Norton Anti Virus doesn't turn out to be the culprit: How to Perform Clean-Boot Troubleshooting for Windows 2000.

    Cowboy & Hans:

    Yes I do have Norton AV... and after the last 4 weeks or so, glad of it... I've caught 2 email viruses alrady...

    I'll take a look and make sure that is the only culprit... at least I know it's not my W2k...

    Thanks for the help...
