Hi,

I've posted before about my PC crashing constantly (a couple of months ago) and I thought we had fixed the problem with the driver updates, etc that I was told to do, but my machine is crashing worse than ever now.

I have tried everything I can think of & am completely lost as to what to do to make it work. A friend told me to scan my system with RegCure & it shoed up the following items that apparently have errors.

I didn't want to purchase the program though so I have no idea what they mean or how to fix them... or even if they are things that could be crashing my system.

Also tried looking up the event viewer, but regardless of going through the tutorial on it, I am still finding it beyond confusing.

Any help would be appreciated. TIA.

It was wise of you not to "fix" anything with RegCure as it is a registry cleaner. Unless you know exactly what you are doing you could cause programs to not work or even the operating system by using registry cleaners. The authors of registry cleaners have different ideas of what "shouldn't" be there, and they have no clue about what is actually on your computer. I manage to wreck my Adobe software by using one. Fortunately, I had backed up my registry and I was able to undo the damage.

Can you post a link to your previous thread so we can see what was done? Also, please tell us what you have done since then.

I second Orange's oppinion. Sometimes extended shuting down time is done because of defragmention of paging files used by virtual memories, or worst been made by broken registry links. I learned most of it is from a registry problem. So, please always do a defragmenting, use less virtual memory ( if you are using those now ) and do always backup you registry before cleaning the registry, for me I always use CCleaner for it has always did it well..but not always :flowers:

So good luck on your side. :thumbsup:
