  1. HI,
    On my parents pc, sometimes..for no apparent reason, an error pops up saying

    MSDTS Run Time Error(5) Invalid...blah blah...
    According to what I read MSDTS is
    MSDTS = Microsoft Distributed Transaction Controller

    Could someone please help me figure out what this is, its a bit annoying...I search microsoft's knowledge base and found nothing....
    They're running Windows ME:dead: ........

    hey man its no problem glad to see im welcome...

    also - i recieved this error along with many others when i upgraded from windows xp home to windows xp pro corporate.. anyone who is thinking about doing this: it is a bad idea. my advice is to back your JUNK<-(lack of swear, admin) up on disks and just do a clean install of xp pro.. its not worth the.. junk it gives you.
