Subject: Using HTTrack w/ WinXP, inc. parameters - a query

Heill, Mr. Roche. I have a question that may or may not
be relevant to the usage of your program. I am curious
as to whether you or any other forum reader may be
aware of what I am doing wrong. I had little trouble
previously with HTTrack other than the problem you
answered here in the forum some time ago for me. 

The sites I have attempted to recently mirror are as

Bibliomania Free Online Literature and Study Guides

Project Runeberg

Folklore and Mythology Electronic Texts

Mark Nodine's Online Welsh Course

I have included the appropriate password/login data 
whenever it was needed. 

My current one is Mark Nodine's free Welsh course online.
I am getting the same type of error message from all
WWWsites that I try to mirror, though, so I figure this
problem is human error. ;) I include here the options
that I have been using for all recent attempted mirrors,
and also the error message that I receive for all of
them. In this, I request the assistance of anyone who
knows the application of HTTrack better than I do.

I am running WindowsXP, all useful updates installed,
MSOfficeXP installed, a few other things as well. My
Component Services are modified according to the 
advice found at 
On this computer, the one on which I try to mirror,
I have a broadband cable connection via Time Warner,
and it gets plenty of I/O bandwidth.

I have no screen saver loaded, my hardware is 1.3 gigahertz
Pentium 4 /Mobo is 850 series if I remember correctly,
video is 128Mb GeforceXT, and the HDDs are plenty big
for mirroring the sites. I cannot think of anything else
that may be relevant at this point to the problem.

Here is the data I am using for HTTrack right now:

Web Address:

Download Web Site(s)

Set Options-Proxy:

Set Options-Scan Rules:
+*.css +*.js*
+*.zip +*.tar +*.tgz +*.gz +*.rar +*.z +*.exe

Max Connections / seconds - 2
Maximum number of links - 100000
[every other field is blank]

Set Options-Flow Control:

[the only thing that is checked here is "Do not purge old 

Set Options-Spider:
Accept Cookies (if unknown), Parse Jave Files, and
Update hack (limit re-transfers) are all checked; the 
others are not. Spider is set to 'no robots.txt rules'.

Set Options-Experts Only:

[everything else is set to defaults, and Active Debugging
Mode (winhttrack.log) is *not* checked.]

Set Options-Log,Index,Cache:
[everything is checked *except* Make A Word Database

Set Options-Browser ID:

Windows NT 5.0)

Set Options-MIME Associations
[still at default settings, i.e., php and others are set
to 'text/html']

Mr. Roche, I would have sent this via e-mail, but I did not 
know if it
would be viewed or not, and I figure that other folk may 
have a similiar
problem, so 'tis best to post it publically for others to 
guide themselves
by should they come here and want to know the answer as 
So, I apologise for the length of the post, but I figure if 
I am going
to ask you or others for advice, I had best provide the 
data in order to give it if possible. I have worked in tech 
before; I know what it is like to not actually *be* where 
the problem
is occuring.    ;)

Here is the error message I gain, and which is essentially 
the same 
as the ones from the other WWWsites I listed, plus a few
