My guess would be that it's either the video driver or the currently
installed version of msvcrt.dll.  I'd try those first.  We've also had
problems with keyboard utilities (I don't know what they did; they
might be for recording macros?)

Unfortunately, your problem is very rare, and you're the only one who
really has any chance of diagnosing it.  It may indeed be time
