Do not return to factory settings, as you will lose all programs, personal data and will be back to how it was when it was sold with all Service Packs and updates to install.


it's no problem, i 've done it already this year (see first post). as long as microsoft gives xp updates i'm ok.


If you are not worried about reformatting then go for that (backup your data first). This is the best and fastest repair for conditions like your's. You probably have a bad program or driver which are difficult tio locate. Wipe the whole thing and that's that.

Just before you do that please run a RAM test. Download Microsoft's memory test utility from here, follow the instructions and run the test. This is very important! If you have RAM problems, even minor, you will get, after formatting, the same problems that you have now.

i have formatted, many times, and it didn't fix anything. or it did, and then i re-installed the program that causes the problem? (read the first post)

will try the RAM test, thank you very much! :D

after the "...needs to close" and "error reporting" popups, i followed a link to a microsoft windows error reporting page, with the following message:

Address a problem with DivX™ Codec
DivX™ Codec has stopped working properly.
DivX, Inc. is aware of this problem and working as quickly as possible to make a solution available.



so i'm hoping...

any (other) insights?
