    I got the fix for the same problem by downloading and installing the
    LLTD hotfix from Microsoft.

    For the XP machines with SP2, go here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...IEuAGhuQ%3d%3d

    if you have SP3, the link for tha patch is on he bottom of that page.

    Once I installed that, my problems seemed to disappear miraculously.

    HTH,
    Joe Parsons

    Re: Win XP and Win 7

    Thanks, Joe, for your suggestion. I've already downloaded this hotfix on one
    of my XP machine. Will try to install it tomorrow. If it works, then I'll
    install it on another XP machine and let you know the results.
    Regards,
    Ilya
