Default Possible Error, or Not?

**can't figure out how to post a picture. usual "img" tags don't seem to work**

I get this all the time, for worker #1:
Click image for larger version

Name:	5flok9.jpg

Is this normal? It only started when I once enabled error checking. Never did it before that, and now it won't stop even with error checking disabled. Also gives this answer whether I am overclocked or not (and running stable or not.)

Once an error has occurred at any point during a test, Prime95 will continue to print that the error has occurred. Fortunately for you, it looks like there was only one error.

To try and partially get rid of the repeating message, look in undoc.txt.

Value 0 means no messages, value 1 means a very short messages, value 2
means a longer message on a separate line, value 3 means a very long message
possibly on multiple lines. Default value is 3.

Thank you so much. That error came nearly a year ago on my last computer and has persisted ever since. I keep thinking it's always there now and driving me nuts! Thanks for helping me get rid of it.

My prime.txt doesn't have "ErrorCountMessages" so I'm just going to add the line and hope that works. Also, is there no way to get rid of the particular message? I mean, it's outdated and I still want error reporting for future possible errors. Perhaps a future update of prime95 can improve this feature.

Putting that line in will not affect the messages if a new error occurs; it only truncates the messages about errors that have already occurred.
