I am getting a persistent Runtime Error from Dell DataSafe: "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way". I have done the following without success:
- uninstalled/reinstalled DataSafe numerous times;
- ran registry cleaner;
- downloaded all Windows XP updates (including SP3);
- ran what I thought might be a fix (R172699);
-reverted back to an earlier version of IE, & contacted Dell Support numerous times.

Dell's last recommendation was to reinstall the operating system. I consider this a pretty extreme action and time consuming. The program had been working fine with my last successful backup on November 30th. What can I do?
