I was listening to some music in Winamp and scanning my PC with AdaWare SE, when there wasa noise, the screen went black and then recovered. Windows said theure had been an online crash.

The error was to do with my device drivers and the above message appeared.

I have XP home, and run Kapersky AV and Firewall.

I have the following anti spyware progs. and security.

Spybot + teatimer
Spyware Blaster
CW Shredder
System Mechanic 5 Pro
A2 Malware detector

Can anyone tell me what the message in the subject line is referring to?

Ok, the "%systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k" is referring to this location: C:\windows\system32\dumprep 0 -k Whenever you see "%Systemroot% it mean the windows folder.

First thing you might want to do is make sure your memory dump (dumprep) is where is should be. To do this click start > right click my computer > click properties > click the bottom right tab (can access it at school now) then click on the top button on the left that is listed after clicking the tab. Now go to the last tab and make sure the number for your memory dump is about 1.5% of your actualy RAM.

Also you may wanna reinstall WinAMP.

Personally I've never really liked WinAMP, I've preferred WMP 10.

Thanks for your help. I will follow your instructions. I was considering reinstalling Winamp and now I will. Why don't you like the programme?

I do have WMP on my PC, but rarely use it. I would be happy to hear your views about this.

I always thought that Winamp was considered one of the best.
