Flashplayer and shutdown Issues

    1)  Sometimes when I shut down my computer I get this message:  "DW20.EXE - DLL Initialization Failed.  The application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down."  Is this something I should be concerned about?
 
     2)  Some websites require Adobe Flashplayer.  I have downloaded it multiple times but still have websites that tell me I don't have it.  Any ideas why? Is this an XP problem?

Thanks!

Try running a detect and repair in Office 2003 - if you have it installed.

DW20.exe is a error reporting ulitily for microsoft office crashes similar to Dr Watson which is an error reporting utility for windows application crashes. Run a repair installation of MS office just like and235100 suggested and that should resolve the issue.
