Also I ran the link above and this is what I got
"MDAC 2.8 RTM is incompatible with this version of Windows. All of its features are currently part of Windows."

Dear johnb6767:
I did as directed but it was asking me for a xp pro sp2 cd.  I don't have that cd because I got my pc from a store where in they don't give you cd anymore but you have to create your own recovery cd or dvd only.  Please help!!!

Do you have the i386 directory on your system? Or, you could burn them to a CDR, or a thumb drive perhaps, as long as you might know someone with an MCE, the same version as yours.....

Dear johnb6767:

I copied a I386 from another computer and re-install the mdac.inf and now it is asking me for the Windows XP Professional cd.  Like I said I don't have that cd because this computer was bought from a store and hp does not give you anymore cd,you have to burn a recovery disc instead of cd.  Please help!!!

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

It should prompt you for a location to find those files, with a browse button....Browsing to the I386 directory doesnt find what you are looking for?

And it doesnt mention a file name?

It did and followed the installation it was asking me and I restarted my computer,  when it came back up, it is still giving me the same message box when I tried to copy and paste a word document to another empty word document.

Im sorry, I have tried researching this error, but unfortunately, I dont have a solution for you. Might suggest creating a pointer back in the current forums, as several hundred posts have occurred since then.....

No problem... as long as someone regularly posts to this question - it won't be classified as "abandoned".

I must agree with johnb6767 - this has got to a point where a repair install >>might<< fix it, but more likely a clean install will be required: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html

Please be advised that what ever I did from instructions above nothing has changed still the same and still getting the same issue.  

So what I did was went through hp, since this is an hp product asked for their help.  They give tech support through chat and they sent me some links and instructions and that fixed the issue.
This is what hp had told me to do and I am hoping that whoever gets this same issue, this will help them solve the problem....
first, SpySubtract.lnk = this is basic 2.66, do a full scan of c drive and delete what ever it founds.  this is a 30 day free trial.  (note:  delete this program from your computer when done using)
second, follow this link and perform all
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=bph06569&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&dlc=en&lang=en
don't forget to reboot your computer when asked.  
This fixed my issue...

Now, how can I post this to everyone to see so this might help them... also how can have my point value back because no one was able to help me so I can still use this point value for future need.

Thank you...

I need to make sure this my problem is identical, and I need to know the steps I must take to rectify the problem.

When I copy to the clipboard i get...

CP_Main: Database has reached maximum size.
CP_Main: The Microsoft Jet database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time.
CP_Main: Database has reached maximum size.
