:) I am going crazy.... I have a PC that was just "repaired" by those other "geek" guys at a store about a month ago. Upon it's return to our home, we immediately installed CA. We have Windows XP Pro on a Systemax, have a linksys router for our laptop, and also have an external harddrive... All "recovered" info from the other "geek" helpers is in a file on my desktop

My computer was running fine for a period of about 3 weeks, but then began running slow, and then slower.
So slow, it began freezing sporadically on simple web pages and when attempting to open links. It freezes until you "X" out of the internet (only way to get out)....
Upon reopening IE, it asks if you want to restore last browsing session. If you say "YES", sometimes it will open the link that you had tried to click onto, and sometimes it wont....
Sometimes when it wont, it displays a message about:

"VTdisp" file causing a problem. Device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. Usually means problem with the device itself or with device driver programming the hardware.
_then it begins dump of physical memory, then says Complete, then says contact System Admin or tech support (all in the same breath! and without giving you any time/way to react).

Is this saying it Dumped our driver or what? I am not certain how all the components of programming hardware work, but I think I understand that you have to have a driver in order for the computer as a whole to "get out of bed".... Right? :) lol
I cannot copy the actual msg as it does not give me enough time before fading out to my desktop either...

Any help would be appreciated....
