Yes, this is OS related... Every now and then... when using VNC, it regularly crashes, even after multiple reboots/reinstalls... yet, sometimes, this error appears...

VNC (basically)

and the window has a title of C++ something something...

Help! I really need this as I maintain my network with it!

Have you tried reinstalling the java client for XP ?


You say that you have reinstalled vnc how about the client ?


Do other programs that use java work ok ?

Other Java works ok... In fact, I am surprised I didnt pick this up before, but VNC is fine for my third comp...

So I had a closer look at my server...

*fingers crossed* I am waggling that mouse around like theres no tomorrow in VNC to my server now... Killed some spyware, lets hope it holds out.

Try installing another flavour of VNC. I prefer RTVNC (Raw Tools), but there is also TinyVNC, and alot of others. They are all linked to off of the VNC site. It may be a bug in VNC that doesn't like XP (although I havn't heard anything about that).
