that error means that you have a mistake in the fix file that you are running.
start over and only use a plain text editor to paste that fix.php file into, then only use a real ftp program to upload it.
I later started a topic on my particular problem because it seemed that, even though this thread seemed to be similar to my problem it wasn't. I eventually found out I needed to repair a number of the tables in the database, which corrected the problem. Thank you for your help...thought you might like to know how I made out. BTW, all is well now. <g>
