I have it.. and it "is" installed because it was installed with XP Pro. However, is there a way to uninstall it because I've heard rumors it has to do with the remote sharing on it.

I am not sure where in XP to uninstall netmeeting. Try add/remove programs or add/remove windows components.

Any other ideas or thoughts that it could be? My mobo manufacturer claims it to be my video card, but I find it odd that many people receive this error with xp, their nvidia card, and directx 8.1..

Ok,
This problem is caused by some type of remote desktop control software you installed (PC anywhere, net meeting remote desktop sharing, SMS 2.0,...) Uninstall this appication and re-install directx 8.1

Another possible solution is to move the card properties down to a lower option, for example 8 MB, and see if it works!

I have tried "already" moving the card properties down to 2MB and 8MB, no luck. With "everyone" saying to uninstall netmeet, surely I would.. but do praytell how?

Yup, sw's such as Net Meeting, PC Anywhere, and any other remote desktop controling need to be uninstalled.

Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Look for them in the list, and Click Uninstall.

Ok.. what.. the ****? Have you ever tried deleting a program that is installed with Windows XP before? They are not listed in the Add/Remove Programs. And, if you try deleting the folder or files its self, they will reappear. There must be some sort of sys file that lists this function to do this I believe, but I have no clue where it may be. Going to this cpl will not help me uninstall. Any "other" suggestions on how to uninstall netmeeting?
