unable to open display "" 6 times when I try to run any X apps from xterm

May bee a longshot,
A couple of months ago I had the same problem and it turned out to be
a DLL problem caused by Logitec web-cam drivers. If you have those
installed try uninstalling them and see if this solves the issue.
Talked to logitec about it and they responded that Injecting their DLL
into the screen routing of windows was a good idea... and why the
h*ll I would want to use linux on windows...
