Default Help with "Error message"

When I start my computer up I get the following message:

"An error has occured in your program. To keep working anyway, click ignore and save your work in a new file. To quit this program, click close you will lose information you entered since your last save"

This message pops up and will not let me do anything. No matter what I do it keeps coming back. How can I fix this problem? ANy help would be great. Thank you very much.

Does the error give the program name?

Does it happen in Safe Mode?

We need your OS and hardware specs too, please.

Eric, what Adrynalyne means is try booting into Safe Mode (tap F8 while booting) and see if the error occurs then.

I have a dell and use Windows ME.


It just does it when I'm starting up. It is not in safe mode. I hope this is enough info to get your help.
