I recently re-formated my computer, and installed LimeWire again. When LimeWire starts up, as causes a bluescreen to flash by for a split second, and then the computer re-boots. The bluescreen mentions something about memory dump, though there is not enough time to read the entire screen. Is this possible to change, so a screendump would be possible?

After I have re-formated my computer a number of times lately, I have realised that there seems to be another program that causes the instability in LimeWire. Thus after re-formating, and the first thing installing my LimeWire, and everything works find. Though after I have installed other software, e.g. office, ad-aware, divx, norton antivirus, acrobat reader, diashow etc. the problem occurs again. I have tried and uninstall programs in order to pinpoint the program conflict, though I have not found any correlation with any other program. Is there any program known to cause a conflict with LimeWire, and is such case which? Could it be ad-aware? Or is my problem something else, and in such case what, and what to do about it.

Please help, though this problem is getting really annoying, and I strongly need my computer and LimeWire for work and study. If you think you may be able to help me out, please post a reply here, or e-mail it to [email protected] thanx.

start by uninstalling limewire...if you really must use a p2p program, go with an adware free program like shareaza

Second, note the time, start limewire, and after the crash and reboot

start > run

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs...list those that happened at the time you noted above here.
