Hi- Firstly the specs: Vista HP SP2 32bit, core2duo 2.66, 2x gf8800, 4gb ram, onboard sound.

When I start the most of my games they won't run, the message is for example "grid executable has stopped working". First I thought it was all my 3D games that did not run anymore, but my MAME games also won't work anymore. Some of my 3D games like Company of Heroes and COD 4 runs fine.
I have tried installing new drivers for the motherboard/graphics/directx and audio but still the same problem. I simply can not find out what is wrong and/or what I changed that made the most games not work anymore.

If there is information missing please let me know, and I will provide what is needed.

I have downloadet Hijackthis and made a logfile, Please let me know if I should attach it here.

I really hope somebody can help, it's very frustrating...

Friendly greetings
