Default Thanks!

I did run memtest last night actually after i posted, it just kept testing and testing, it appeared to have no errors, but i'm not sure, is it just supposed to continue, or am i supposed to let it run until it's done, i let it run overnight and this morning there were no errors, so either it's clean or i have no idea waht i'm doing :S

Your last resort is to save everything on a different drive and wipe your main drive, then a fresh install. I do a fresh install two or three times a year.

Its great to have nothing on the drive and the computer performing well.

Well i just recently did that, i think it's memory related, even though memtest didn't come up with any errors, i'll probably buy some new ram soon, but still, i'm not sure if that's the real issue or not.

C:\DOCUME~1\r0rY\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER698d.dir00\Mini1 11404-09.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\r0rY\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER698d.dir00\sysda ta.xml

3. in safe mode ,run regedit.exe to scan and search you register table for those two files, and del the key assignments


Do it just like this way , trust me!
