hello, thanks in advance for any help.
i run xp sp2 (all updates are done) and get about 20 crashes/freezes per week. sometimes ten in a row, sometimes none at all on a given day. sometimes during boot up, sometimes not. (so i am thinking it is not temperature related)
my (limited) diagnostic efforts are as follows.
spybot 1.4 finds nothing.
ccleaner has cleaned up registry recently.
memt32 finds nothing wrong with memory.
disk check is all good.
ewido/avg find nothing.
i partitioned the disk about 2 years ago but had no probs at that time. linux is on the other side but i never use it.
msconfid tells me at startup i have the following (means nothing to me):
