Hope someone can help me here, as I haven't had this XP computer long. I've updated Windows, but now: Everytime I shut down I get an error box: DDCMAN.EXE application error (then it lists a memmory location that cannot be read, a whole bunch of gobblelygook to me) Also, does XP have a backup application, like WIN98 did? Boy, I can't find it. When I tried to restore a directory from a WIN98 PC to this XP PC using a CD-RW with a QIC file, it had no idea what to do and neither did I. Any help appreciated.
