OK that isn't good. We need to look more closely at the OS now. What OS do you have and do you have a Genuine Microsoft OS Installation disk or a recovery disk for your system?
If recovery then what brand name is your system?

OK then we need to do a couple of steps. First and foremost.

You can download a legal copy of Windows 7 with SP1 integrated from here:

Windows 7 Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO. The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.

You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.
  • Download and run Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3
  • Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom
  • Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file
  • Select your USB flash drive
  • Click Create
For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.


Then I need you to do the following once you have the disk made and secured.


SFC /Scannow Win7

Go HERE and read the tutorial that shows how to do SFC or System File Checker and running in a Elevated Command Prompt in Vista and Win7.


If that finds nothing then we will try a repair installation on the OS.

A actual repair installation will not delete anything.

well I did the repair install and it still crashes, though I chatted with somebody I know and figured out it is Livestream's ad server causing a conflict with my pc's chipset and flash player itself.

trying to figure out how to block the ads on my browsers to see if that will work as a temporary fix till Livestream fixes this nasty bug

What browser do you use most?
I use Waterfox which is the 64 bit version of FireFox. You can use adblock with it and it works pretty good. There seems to be a version for IE and Chrome also.
Firefox Adblock
IE Adblock
Chrome Adblock

Try clicking on the adblock logo at the bottom of IE window and then click on filter preferences.
Then on the right window at the top click on add filter and then manually ad livestream url to it.
Make sure it is enabled also.
