My main problem was listed here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...mp;#entry932296
And after help, I was able to remove Norton finally, but the crashes continue.
Last night, as per suggested, I ran the defrag and when I checked this morning, the puter hadn't crashed overnight, as it usually does, BUT...a new error message had popped up
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I know I said I was ready to give up but maybe this gives another clue???
Would it have something to do with the Win Service Pack 3 that I just installed? That was when the crashes started while in idle mode
