Hi again.  I'm asking this question for my son.  He said when he tries to log on to Windows XP, he gets an error message:  "Run time error"


He states that he cannot log on and must use his wife's account in order to use the computer.  He is the administrator.  Any suggestions as to what's wrong and what he should do to fix the problem? 


Thanks y'all.

What is a runtime error?


(run´tīm er´&r) (n.) An error that occurs during the execution of a program. In contrast, compile-time errors occur while a program is being compiled. Runtime errors indicate bugs in the program or problems that the designers had anticipated but could do nothing about. For example, running out of memory will often cause a runtime error.

My son called me last night and read to me exactly what the error message was.
