Debug Assertion Failed! error message

Hello.  I'm receiving a Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library:  Debug Assertion Failed! error message whenever I open an application (the application is an EEG monitoring Patient Database).  The application will open, but as soon as I move my cursor, the above error message pops up.  Selecting Abort or Retry causes the application to close.  If I click Retry several times, the error message disappears, but shows up again after moving the cursor around.  Does anyone know how to fix this problem?  I know my way around a computer to a certain extent, and this is obviously beyond me.


I am using a ThinkCentre M52 8113-F1U with Windows XP service pack 2.


Original description: Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 650 with HT Technology, 512MB, 80GB 7200RPM S-ATA HDD, PCI/PCIe Tower (4x4), Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, 16x DVD-ROM, Intel Gigabit Ethernet, POV, Windows XP Professional


Thanks for your consideration.

Re: Debug Assertion Failed! error message

Hello Emiller,


I googled "Debug Assertion Failed" and got a tip that may help you. Try running a program to remove ad or other malware (like Spybot Search & Destroy) as suggested by the second poster on the following page:


If the link does not work:

1. go to

2. type 'debug assertion failed' in the search box

3. and the thread started by 'sandielynne' has the suggested fix.
