When this happens, go to Control Panel/Admin Tools/Event Viewer and under both software and system look for any red flags - write down any error reports - (double click to display error details) also go to the online "help and support link (which appears at the bottom)for any further details on the error.
I suspect you may have a hardware problem or perhaps a bad sector on your hard disk - so check your disk for errors.
Get back to us with the error details.
Profile for main Sys info. XP Pro(SP1)+10hotfix on P4.
Computer about 7 mos old. Have been expierencing repeated crash & auto reboots (mini-dumps) about 2- 3 times /week for 2 months. Message always same:
'' Your system has successfully recovered from a serious event.'' Detail info shows: C:\docu~1\Sandy(me)\locals~1\temp\wer1.temp dir00\sysdata.xml.
This means nothing to me except it has to do with the temp files/settings? for my desktop?
This problem occurs in several instances I.E. when leaving Hotmial via IE, starting /or leaving one of several games (all local non-internet)with deskop icons located in program files. These games are not high tech and originally came from 95(?) Delux Pacman, 98 ish Pool 'em up, Dart 'em up. newer: Bejeweled Delux, Zuma Delux (both popcap games from original retail install disks). The icons for these in my desktop ''installed games'' folder have been erratic over time with (for example) the Pacman icon showing up where the TopsyTurvy icon belongs as well as its normal place for Pacman. It was still Topsy game if you clicked but system put wrong icon. Starting the game caused correct icon to reappear. Maybe red herring !!
I keep my machine very clean and regularly empty all cache files and defrag weekly. I have recently started using C Cleaner which seemed to help for 2 weeks but crashes started again last night. Occassionaly dump starts from 2nd users desktop.
Computer scans completely clean from AVG, AdawareSE(1.06) & Spybot1.3 all up to date defs.No hints of Trojans or Hijacks/re-directs.
Can supply error # (BC Code:1000008e) etc if needed.
Any answers occur? Better in another(which) forum?
This is WAY out of my (little) league !! Thanks for your thoughts!!!
