Error Message--Help needed
Wed, 11-15-2006 - 7:17pm

Every once in awhile I get this error message:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Buffer overrun detected


A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the programs internal state. The program can not safely execute and must now be terminated.

What can I do about this? TIA

What program (please include version number) are you running when you get this error message?

In most cases but not all cases a PC's inability to temporarily store information or buffer this information until ready to utilize it or run causes the error hence buffer under or over run. You made need ram replaced and or increased for he hardware and or application that you are using.
