Whenever I close a program quickly, I get a message "runtime error 217 at 06BBF57D".  This happens on various programs, and once I lick the "okay" the box closes.

Can you please explain what is the problem and how to solve it?  I have Windows XP and it is up-to-date will all security bul, etc.

    This seems to be caused by some add-on to IE7. Try this fix:

    Start IE7, then:
    ".. was able to fix this problem by going to "Tools", click Manage Add-Ons and disable all of them. Reload your browser a few times to see that the error does not show up again. Then re enable your add-ons one at a time until you find which one(s) are the problem."

    This is from:

    Alternately, you can check the Event Logs (Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Event Viewer) for a clue as to what application is causing this. Look at both System and Application Logs.
