Hi

I am a fairly computer-savvy person and have kept my computer spyware
and virus free throughout (Have Spybot S&D, Adaware Pro, McAfee
Anti-virus up-to-date etc.)

I just encountered this error while opening the "Add/Remove Programs"
icon in the Control Panel :
Window title - Parser Message
Message - Value creation failed " at line 521

My config.:
Windows XP Service Pack 2
AMD Athlon XP-M 2200+, 256 MB RAM, 30 GB HDD.

Any suggestions to rectify this would be appreciated gratefully :)

Thanks a lot, Mary. :)

The link has an instance of the exact same problem encountered by
somebody else, and its solution. I am going to do as suggested there.

Thanks again for your atention.
