The version is 0.9-11 and was installed fron CRAN directly using the 
menu on R-gui, I assume that it was compiled for R 1.7.0. Also, the 
problem is not that I cannot load the package tseries, the problem is 
that R does not even start unless I use the option


at startup.

Also, I should mention that the problem arises only under Windows XP. It 
works just fine under Windows 95, Windows 98, as well as RedHat Linus 7.3.
