General Protection Fault error

by jreisz In reply to General Protection Fault ...

A crash in GDI.exe is most often caused by conflicts with the video driver. You can turn down acceleration on the video driver by going to the control panel | System | Performance | Graphics and then sliding the bar to the left. If the problem goes away then you will want to download the latest driver for your video card.

DDhelp is part of directx so if you don't have the latest version then you can go to http://www.microsoft.com/directx. You can also run dxdiag.exe to see if the diagnostic program uncovers anything.
