Msqsrv32 (Not Responding)

by maxwell edison In reply to Msqsrv32 (Not Responding)

According to Microsoft article Q169987 titled, "Msgsrv32 Not Responding When Computer Hangs While Idle", When your computer is idle for a period of time and then stops responding (hangs), the Close Program dialog box may report that Msgsrv32 is not responding.

This behavior can occur when power management is enabled, and you have issues with programs not responding correctly to power management commands, for example, screen saver programs.

To work around this behavior, use the following steps:

Quit any running programs, and then test to determine if a specific program is causing this behavior. (In your case, it's Internet Explorer, but you may want to test other programs as well.) If you quit all running programs and the issue is resolved, one of the programs that was running is the cause of this behavior. If this does not resolve the issue, continue to step 2.

NOTE: This issue is often caused by screen saver programs.

Disable power management. To do so, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power.

In the Power Management box, click Off (or click the "Allow windows to manage power on this computer" check box to clear it).

Click OK.

Restart your computer.

If the behavior continues to occur, follow these additional steps:

In Control Panel, double-click System.

On the Device Manager tab, double-click the System Devices branch to expand it.

Double-click Advanced Power Management Support.

On the Settings tab, click the Enable Power Management Support check box to clear it, and then click OK.

Click OK.

Restart your computer when you are prompted to do so.

As far as why your Internet Explorer 6.0 is locking up, it's hard to say exactly. However, I have seen a LOT of problems with IE 6.0, particularly with the way it reads Java script, especially on earlier versions of Windows. IE 6.0 came bundled with Windows XP and was primarily designed for that.

If it were me, I'd reinstall IE 5.0 or 5.5 for use on a Win 98 machine. However, you might try simply reloading IE 6.0 and select the option to repair or replace damaged files.

Good luck,

Maxwell
