I'm also going to do something that caused previous crashes,
& see if I can get you any more of those log files.  If 2-3 all said
the same thing, it should be fairly obvious.


I dl'd the memtest & will give that a run too.

Thanks

Silly Question?   ;D

how long does the memtest run?
I ran it for 8 hours on my secondary machine,
4 hours on this machine & it seems like the
EverReady Bunny, It just Keeps going......and Going...
no problems found in memory.

Should I let it run for days?

I guess there's advanced options in menu and test no.11 should be the best - maybe it'd be better to switch your memory for 1-2 days.

By default, it runs indefinitely... but we probably don't have so much time do we? ;D
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

I have been having all sorts of browser failures, etc,
tried running in safe mode & had more of the same.

I went to Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Event Viewer/
& found some very interesting stuff:

Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1106, faulting module xvid.dll, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00047d0f.


I uninstalled the xvid codec & so far things seem a little more stable.

I will do further investigating in the morning.
