My machine is suffering from random crashes which useally have the STOP codes Stop 50 and Stop A - the last one though was Stop 8E
Finally found myself a way into Event Viewewr and have noticed 3 errors continually been accessed and these are EZWinit and EZwriter can't find the files needed etc and also IPSEC services Service is unable to start etc.
Have done a quick msconfig and unchecked the IPSEC service from attempting to run and that touch wood seems to have cured that bit But.......
This EZ stuff has me perplexed, it is useally formed as part of the EZ Flash program which i had on my machine to back up saved Gameboy Advance roms etc, but i checked the HD and found i had actually installed multiple versions of the program on differant drives with the same drivers etc so uninstalled the one on Drive C:\ through add/remove programs which left the one on the other HD.
Still getting same event errors so deleted all traces of the EZ program off my computer incl drivers and everything.
But still the machine seems to want to try to access EZ Winit and EZwriter and when it finds no files exist give out error messages in Event Viewer.
Now I'm not sure if this is the actual cause of the random crashes or not but would like to remove EZ... from anywhere on my PC that it may reside but can't find it in any place.
Any help as always greatly appreciated
BTW XP with SP2 installed.
512 mg of SD Ram but have just bought a stick of 1GB DDR Ram which will be going in soon.
