In the Event Log and DrWatson logs I always find these entries scattered throughout:

1) WARNING: Stack unwind information not available. Following frames may be wrong.
ChildEBP RetAddr Args to Child

2) Symbol file could not be found. Defaulted to export symbols for C:\WINDOWS\system32\ADVAPI32.dll

I would really like to know what this means. Maybe it is something that can be fixed? Or - should I just leave it alone?

Windows never crashes. On very rare occasions, Windows Explorer crashes - but then jumps right back in again. I do have little Windows oddities and strange little happenings, most of which are fixed by a reboot, and sometimes, one of my programs hangs and crashes.

Thanks.

If it's not an error...it doesn't require any user intervention. In fact, some errors can be disregarded (hanging apps that cannot be upgraded, some time connection errors, etc.)

A warning is not an error on my systems.

Program hangs are earmarked as Errors on my systems.

Thanks. I wasn't too worried about it. It's just that I've been looking at it for years and wondered what it meant. I guess I kinda hoped it might be the answer to my little glitches. Guess not :thumbsup:
