Hi wl,

Let's try some basic troubleshooting. If the problem still persists
please post back and we'll try some more steps. Good luck! :)

1. To see if it's a software conflict: Temporarily disable Startup
programs one at a time, starting with Firewall, Antivirus, and ad
blockers using: http://new.jtsoft2001.com/windows/startup.php

You can lookup what a program does before you disable it here:
http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php

2. Run a virus scan at: http://housecall.antivirus.com Afterwards
Download & Run Spybot from: http://security.kolla.de to find any
Trojans, Adware, or Spyware which could clog up your system.

3. Click My Computer / Rightclick the Drive & Choose Properties
/ Run the "Disk Cleanup..." / Next Click the "Tools" Tab and run
the "Error-Checking" and "Defragmentation" utilities.

4. Go to the Windows Update site for everything under Critical and
Recommended: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com Some games
require a patch: http://www.avault.com/pcrl/patches_list.asp?letter=a

5. Update DirectX and your Chipset, Sound, &Video Drivers:
For all Video / DirectX / Game and Hardware Issues, I have a
Checklist of Solutions at: http://mvps.org/nibblesnbits/Video.html

>Hi Jimmy,
Still no luck. I have tried the various steps you sent
me. I have also restarted my macine and it still gives me
the following message:AppName: linksmmiii.exe AppVer:
22.7.2.191 ModName: unknown
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 50ff4d59

It won't let me play more than two holes without shutting
down - it's getting REALLY irritating
Thanks wl

Hi wl,

Here's some more solutions. I hope they help! :)

1. Allow Windows to control your pagefile at a "system managed size",
and allow enough room for the pagefile size to = 1.5 * your RAM as per:
http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsXP/expertzone/columns/mcfedries/03june16.asp
Another good reference is: http://aumha.org/win5/a/xpvm.php

2. Test your RAM using: http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

3. How To Repair Windows:
Unplug from your Internet connection, and then repair Windows:
using this method: http://michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Afterwards, boot up your system, turn on your XP Internet Firewall,
plug back into your Internet connection and install all Critical and
Recommended updates from: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
