i have been having this problem for some months now and it would happen every 2 days or so. but now it is happening more often and is starting to affect my online racing so its time to fix it.
i tried googling the error but am getting lots of different fixes so am asking here :wink2:

Nigel can you be a bit more specific? Can you make it crash/hang by doing a certain thing or is it totally random?

Have you tried doing a scan disk check?

Right click the drive then properties; Second tab (tools) click "Check now" Then on Error checking tool (first). Select the first option i "automaticly fix system errors" If it ask you to do it on the next reboot, then do so.

Might not fix it, but worth a try.

I've only got experience with 32b Vista so never experienced this problem, so just throwing up idea's.

It's more likely a problem with one of the Vista services that are running causing this problem.
