Constant Computer Crashing

by Warpten1 / March 20, 2013 1:39 PM PDT

So I will admit that my XP computer is getting kind of old, almost 7 years now, but within the past few days it crashes quite frequently when I'm online.

It doesn't seem to be when I'm doing anything in particular, just randomly, but I'm assuming it has something to do with Flash (since flash is everywhere and I watch youtube quite a bit).

Anyway, after it reboots, the system error report always gives me a notice that these were the files that caused the error...

C:\DOCUME~1\HP_ADM~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER185b.dir00\Mini032013-01.dmp

C:\DOCUME~1\HP_ADM~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER185b.dir00\sysdata.xml

One last thing, it's been a while since updating my computer from Microsoft actually works. Usually it updates and installs everything, then goes right back to needing to do that exact update. But that's not a concern right now, just thought I'd mention it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

Flash Hardware Acceleration is my advice first.
