In safe mode. It's a race against time before Mozilla bumps me off with a crash report...so that's still a big issue.
I will try to run both MBytes and AVG remover from safe mode and report back.

Will attach both notepads.
When I opened MByte, I got a message again that the database was either corrupted or missing and did I want a new copy. I said yes. It sure retrieved the copy hyper quickly and said it went from version 000 to version 6 27 12 . The scan took under 2 minutes. None of that feels right to me.
I ran AVG remover again but it did nothing but produce a log. I think it did its trick yesterday when it actually requested a re-start. I don't see any avg reference in the add/removed list.

Probably nothing but when I looked in C Drive there is a folder there named $AVG. Inside of it are two folders named $CHJW and $Vault.

Some of these indicate a memory issue.

Please run this memory test:

http://www.geekstogo...sing-memtest86/
The guide is comprehensive with images.

If you get evidence of a bad memory stick remove all but one and test them one at a time for 8 full cycles.

I'll follow the instructions for the memory test, but pretty sure I won't know how to remove memory sticks properly...or even what they might look like. I thought I had just 2 (each at 256)
By coincidence, I do have two newly purchased 1G memory sticks from crucial.com that I haven't even opened as this was happening when they arrived. I was going to have a local geek squad type employee install them for me by replacing my 2- 256 ram sticks.
Anyway, I'll try to run the tests, assuming I can follow the directions. I'm still in safe mode. Is that necessary or advised right now?

So I guess what maybe I should do at this point is take my tower in to have the 2 sticks of RAM installed...since it's RAM we are trying to pinpoint. If we can violate the 48 hour rule of this forum, let me get the RAM installed, then come back here to report. Perhaps then do some analysis? If things look OK, maybe help me with some cleanup after these various applications and zips have been taken on to my desktop.
Or do you have a different idea. It does not look like I can run the MemTest.
I'll wait to hear.
Still in safe mode. Is that needed now? Or just a good idea until we come to some resolution.
Thanks for your time and reply.

Do you have a CD player on this machine?

Can you use a friends CD burner on their computer to make this disk?

Here is a USB flash drive installer.

Make sure if there is anything on the USB drive that you back it up before running this.

Download the installer here.

Unzip it to your desktop.
Insert the USB flash drive.
Double click it to run it and follow the prompts.
Once it is created reboot and start tapping F12
Then select boot from USB and enter.
Allow it to run and check the results.

I do have a cd drive but do not know anyone locally with a burner to use. I will assume your 2nd post with the flash drive zip will accomplish the same thing. I will report back after I hopefully run it successfully. Will there be a log to attach?
Thanks for sticking with this. I'm running in normal mode not safe mode. Only one mozilla crash so far.

F12 is not allowing me to do anything differently. The machine goes to its normal Windows boot and straight to my normal desktop. However, the first screen I see that flashes by offers the choice of pressing esc to go to the boot menu. I suppose I should try that? I hesitate to make decisions on my own here, so will wait for your reply. Sorry, I have just enough knowledge to screw things up but not enough to feel confident at all!!

Taking a while. It's on its sixth pass. I wonder how many passes it will do. Hey, there's only 43264 errors counted so far. I see L1 cache listed as 16K and L2 cache listed as
256 K.
I don't know if this will generate a report or what it is you will want to see when it is finally done.
I'll report back when this is done and hopefully there wll be something obvious to report.
