*looks at all the DLLs that are loaded*

Is it me, or do you have every plugin installed? You also seem to have a TON of other apps that are hooking into the process. For example, "ASUS Data Security Manager", all sorts of "Norton 360 Premier Edition" DLLs, etc. The floating point state is also incorrect ("fps=0x0" on the Processor line, but it should be 0x1). I would try disabling or removing those.

This doesn't look like a bug in Paint.NET. All it's doing is loading a cursor from the resource DLL. Something else is corrupting the state of things. Also, if you have an Effect that has crashed, then don't be surprised if Paint.NET falls over shortly after! That's what the big error dialog with the restart recommendation is for.

That's because Paint.NET is running out of memory.

Try removing all the effect plugins, the Norton virus, and other software you don't need. Then, try again.

Well I doubt it's an actual "out of memory" problem, esp. since you're on 64-bit.

You keep saying that "it" says "parameter not valid" but I don't know of any dialog in the program that prints this error. I have no idea what error message you're talking about, and you haven't provided a screenshot, nor am I psychic.

You do need to accept that maybe there's something you can do to fix this. Like I said, there is no bug in Paint.NET -- it's just loading a cursor. A crash at that point indicates some other problem.
