Win2k Debug Problem

  1. I've got a bit of a problem with win2k,

    i recently bought a GeForce4ti4400, and decided to run some games i hadnt played in a while to see how much better they ran.

    I installed Max Payne, and tried to run it, but the follwing message appeares as soon as i run the exe:


    A debugger has been detected
    Unload the debugger and try again


    i know my way around windows, but im not to sure about any win2k debugger, i've had a run through the services, and checked the processes runnig through the task manager, but i can seem to track down what it might be.

    Before i had win2k on here, i had winXP, which did run Max Payne fine.

    Thanks for any help....

    Is it Dr. Watson?

    You can disable it as follows:

    Run regedit.

    In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ AeDebug,

    Edit value "Auto" to "0".

    no it isn't :(

    tbh, i haven't gone through the regestry, since i don't know my way round it :)

    Win2k with debug kernel? I'm not sure how to disable that.
    Or some trojan app running in background like Back Orifice? Check with an antivirus app.

    i hope it's not a virus, since i have notron2k2 fully up to date on it.

    one thing that has puzzled me is that i did have renegade working before on win2k (about a month ago) but it isnt working now :confused:


    i'll have alook into that debug kernal thing, see if i can track down how to run it off (if it is on)
