    Thanks for everyone's thoughts and recommendations but believe I've got it fixed. I was reading somewhere that other programs on the computer can cause a fault like that so started looking and found my Excel program would work but kept saying it needed to replace a file that was damaged. I put in the CD as requested, it fixed the problem and also the one with  Spam Butcher I guess because it 's not looked back since and is working perfectly. Anyone else have a problem similar with the same error message you might want to look at some of your other programs, one of them may be the culprit.
    Best Regards,
    Gary Goynes

        Brand new problem, Motherboard
        « Reply #19 on: February 12, 2018, 12:02:28 PM »
        Motherboard on my computer appears to have gone belly up. It's about8 or 10c years old so it'd possibly time. using my wife's old Dell but it at least works pretty well. Now here's my problem, motherboard is a CG5270 Asuz and finding a new one is near impossible. Used are available but i prefer a new one. Does anyone know of an available replacement  that is an exact match I can bolt right in the old one's place? I'm running Windows XP Professional and would appreciate any help in this area.
        Thanks

        a few things to consider.

        that's a socket 775 board, so yes, that will be all but impossible to find new.
        eventually you are going to have to replace it with a more modern gen one, and that'll force the upgrade of the RAM, CPU and PSU.
        so serious thought is needed on whenever you go down that path now or go cheap with just a mobo and gamble the system hangs together for a few more years.
        and even if you can just replace the mobo, XP will consider there has been too much hardware changes and will want to be reinstalled.

          Thanks Mark for your reply. Being in between a rock and a hard place, I'd like to  get a new computer but a bunch of the needed software on my XP won't run on the newer windows 10. Not sure what to do!!

          one solution I use for old XP-only software that simply can't be updated to be Win10 friendly is to use a Virtual Machine.  (VMware Workstation 12 Player, free for non-commercial use, in my case)
