Today, when I try to log in a forum, the web opend showing nothing but only this:
"Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e57'."
Strangly, others can login that forum successfully
Any other forum including this I can log in completely successful,

Then, I remember this phenomenon appeared after I installed and then removed an browser tool called megaupload.

Now, how do I fix this error?
I am not a computer expert, so please give me some easy way, a small tool for example.
thanks in advance.

this error is basically telling you that there's a problem connecting to/manipulating a database. i really doubt this is a problem with your computer if this is happening with a website - the only thing i can think of is your browser may be passing malformed url's or something to the web server and it's going "huh?". try a different browser, try another computer. if it still happens then it's a problem on the server's side and there's nothing you can do about it. if you can get it to work then you may want to try reinstalling or patching your browser with any updates that may be out there.

it also occurred to me that if you have some non-alphanumeric characters in your username/password that could make it angry. sometimes we forget to account for last names like o'neil, etc and it can make the db return a middle finger error code.

Some more background into the error is useful..

What was the exact DB message. 80040e57 can relate to many things, from errors in your ASP script, ODBC issues, or you may be trying to insert too much text into a defined field.

Usually the later.

Try clearing your DNS cache. If you're using Windows XP or 2000, click Start then click Run. That'll bring up a box where youcan enter -

ipconfig /flushdns

[notice there's a space between ipconfig & /flushdns]

Instructions for clearing the DNS cache on other OSs can probably be found by Googling "clear DNS cache" & the name of your OS.

And don't sue me if this totally hoses your system, but I recently had a prob accessing a database & this fixed it for me.

Good luck.
