Dear readers,
I'm your typical online gamer, so when I noticed something wrong after trying to open up R.O.S.E. Online (roseon.com) I decided to ask for assistance here.

Well, R.O.S.E. Online has a patcher (an .exe) that updates the game with all the new content they implement -- it is a MMORPG after all. About two weeks ago I had no problem playing it, all ran smoothly, the graphics were in tip top shape, etc. All went well until I took an extended break away from gaming and focused on research.
Anyways, today I went to open it and sat here as it patched as usual.
It ran, at first, correctly like it should of. But then I was greeted with a blue screen error.

VWIN32 (05) + 000012D0 Error : 0E : 0028 C02A44A8

I shrugged and thought it could of been the other programs I was running (instant messangers, etc). So I closed everything down and tried again. Same problem. So I restarted the computer, and tried again. Same problem. I decided to kick up my spyware/adware/malware/trojan/etc programs and ran the usual session that most people do. One or two adwares were found, but nothing bigger. Until I used a-square 2. It located two trojans and two viruses in my Sun/Java folder (I had installed java for mozilla firefox a week back). Quickly I made sure to do away with them and all seemed well for two more days or so.
Until I decided I'd like to play R.O.S.E. Online again. So, I repeated the proccess. Opening it up after closing all programs down, trying to let it patch, only to get the same exact blue screen error.
I thought it was the program, so I uninstalled. Then reinstalled. Tried again, got the same problem. So I deleted it entirely and downloaded a fresh copy off the site. Same. Problem.

I noticed my driver seemed old, and ultimately my question is.. Should I update it? How do I do that? Not the wisest with drivers here.

Driver: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX driver with Tv Outlet (Dell)
Platform: Windows ME

I looked around and couldn't find anything on the nvidia.com site, just things like GeForce 6 (without the MX?). I was cautious to download that in fear of screwing it up, so.. that's why I'm here. :thumbsup:
.. This driver was roughly installed November 2001? So I imagine it's pretty outdated. But should I be doing this?.

Thank you for your responce(s). I appreciate it.

I also have an NVidia GeForce 2 MX/400. I've had this AGP card for five years and no problems. I install new drivers every 6 months or so and my card runs fine. The drivers for your card are listed under Universal Detonator Drivers on the NVidia site . a lot of chatters talk about how they hate the detonator drivers and and are always dowloading programs to delete them from their systems because they are sticky drivers that are hard to clean from your system if you upgrade to newer and faster cards however, I think they run the Geforce series of cards well and if you don't plan to upgrade anytime soon to a faster 128-bit card than the detonator series drivers are fine. Just make sure you change the driver using 'automatic search for a better driver' in the
display properties/advanced/adapter/change tabs to make sure the new adapter gets used after download. They won't automatically switch to the new driver after download. Only manually!! Hope this helps.
