Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, and then Command Prompt.
At the command prompt, navigate to the directory where you downloaded err.exe. For example, if you downloaded err.exe to C:\Err, type cd C:\Err.
Type err errornumber to obtain more information about the error. For example, if the specific error number is 80070005, type err 80070005.
