Thanks for taking the time to report one of the things which has effected you and your solution.

I feel however, that it is important to stress to anyone reading this thread that your solution to the problem is not necessarily the one for every Windows XP user out there. This error can happen for many reasons and Para (and others) have posted various solutions to help. For example, I have Windows XP SP2 and the only time I get this error is when a problem happens on the server's end, and that's rare.

Heavily promoting Linux on a forum relating to a program which only works on Windows is just asking for trouble, so do be careful smile
