SP1 is applied. Windows just did a bunch of updates earlier today, is that what you're talking about? Or is there something else I should be doing.

I'll be damned, my a/c unit was turned off over the weekend while gone and I forgot until I started sweating, lol. I cranked it up and cooled the house down, no problems since. Could it have been that it was overheating?

I'll go ahead and do the screen shot thing just to make sure Scrooge. Carwiz, I don't know how to check event logs, but I'm sure I can learn.

Wow, I need to start learning some things.

EDIT: I Googled it and holy crap, I have 115 admin events with "critical" "error" and other stuff. I assume I should erase them? Is there a way to?

so is it working alright for you now?
i'd think it must have been very hot in your room to make the system crash like that.
did you check your system temps yet? if not you can download (RealTemp).
