[Spambayes] Cannot enable Spambayes

Yeah, I tried rebooting and it starts working... for a little while. The
checkbox stays checked, but soon it goes back to staying unchecked.

It's interesting you mention loading a "bitmap file". I notice that after
rebooting Spambayes shows a blue "Spambayes anti-spam notifier" logo at the
top of the manager page. However, when I was getting the problem this logo
did not appear; there was a big blank space there. It also did not show the
version number; it said something like "put version number here". Very

Any way, as I mentioned, it's probably something wrong with my machine.
After I complained to you I started getting weird graphics in other
applications, like Internet Explorer and a school gradebook application.
Graphics weren't appearing in web pages before I installed Spambayes but I
just ignored that, thinking the pages were bad. But now the toolbar in IE
and Outlook are showing black silhouettes instead of icons, and my gradebook
program is not showing graphics like the logo and toolbar icons either. They
were working yesterday.

I installed Microsoft SQL Server on my machine this morning, and suspect
that is what may be wrong. I didn't notice anything funny until I installed
Spambayes, so it got the blame. Sorry for jumping to conclusions.

It is failing to load some of the bitmap files used by the dialogs,
complaining it is "out of memory".  I assume you have tried re-booting?
