Hello, I keep getting an error dialog box that says: "Data source name not found and no default driver specified." When I click 'OK', it goes away only to return sometime later. I also have some small event freeze ups at times, IE or other usual reason. I have Googled the phrase in the box but can't make sense out of what I have found. :rolleyes: It seems this could be caused by several things. I have only been computing for a year and am not adept at knowing the terminology or the particular actions of an ini file or OBDC Data Source or Driver from another. Thanks for any help on this matter. AMD Athlon XP 2000+ 1659 Mhz; 224 MB RAM Windows ME; Neto Dragon 56K Voice Modem VIA RhineII Fast Ethernet Adapter.....need to know anything else?
