Rob:

One helpful hint with those Windows error messages:  Select them with
your mouse.  Then press Control-C.  This copies it to the clipboard. 
Then open notepad and press control-V.  That pastes it!  It is very
annoying that there is no easy way to do this, especially with those
strange messages.
