    Has anyone had any problems with games and applications crashing.

    They seem to run fine a few times and then cause this error without starting at all...

    I have win xp svp1 and dx8.1

    No changes happen to the machine during these crashes
    Reinstalling software doesnt work - but the countless times i have rebuilt xp - does work !

    :bounce2:

    are you running your latest video card drivers, mobo drivers, and bios? :confused:

    To start of with I didnt install all the latest patches - cause i was wondering if that was causing a problem - what i have done now is patched to heaven and back and the problem occured again with one game.

    Ive checked that shortcuts are ok and game is existent on hard drive.
    I patched the games where necessary - sometimes the failure happens after a patch of the game and sometimes it happens much later.

    DX9 - with Mechwarrior Mercs in particular cause the game to stop working - so i thought that might be a problem
    So updated my video drivers - no DX 9 - problem occured.
    Updated video drivers - dx 9 yes - problem occured.
    Updated intel drivers - problem occured.
    Dont know if i can or should worry about updating bios ?

    Various problems occur over various games its not limited to one in particular game.
    Unistalling the game and re-installing doesnt help in most cases - sometimes it works for a few unistall/reinstalls and then it stops working.

    Current System spec [after another re-install of XP]
    2.6 GHz - 800 FSB - 1 GB DDR 400 memory - no over clocking of anything
    latest detonator video driver -
    latest Intel driver
    XP patched to heaven and back..
    zonealarm pro.
    DX 8.1

    Yep - so Google, Ask, MSN , MSDN and Technet list of places ive visited.
    None really help.

    Anyway - I think I may have solved this finally.
    After getting the same problem start to happen again - I was feeling sorry for myself and sent the error report to MS and also went to look at their suggested resolution.

    Proof that the reporting system does work I think - 2 months ago when I sent the error report to them originally - there was no possible cause for the problem.
    Now they say it may be suspected Pate Worm virus ..

    Anyway upshot of all this - Norton Anti Virus - which ACTUALLY came in usefull.
    I installed this and found i indeed had a worm attaching itself to exe's.
    It had algorithm so as to infect a few files every time the pc was on,
    this explained the intermittent problem that i would get after a few days of use of the pc slowly getting worse..

    De flead my PC - and fingers X so far so good.
    Ive re-installed all my games and they all seem to be happy for the time being.:woot:
