I have Microsoft Picture It! but when I try to open it a message comes that
reads "PIP has caused an error in GDI.exe" and I can't open it. The only help
that I could get said that I needed to update my video adapter driver
unfortunately I couldn't find any updates. I have Windows xp home edition.
Can anyone help me?

===================================================
What version of Picture It! are you using?

Did you go to the website of your Video
Adapter's manufacturer and search for
updated driveers?
