The event viewer doesn't have any errors under the app tab, only two warnings from the last day or so:
Event ID: 3
The Bluetooth solution has encountered a problem and may not function properly. Keyboard connection failed after 2 retries (Timeout).
I know about this anyway as my wireless keyboard is turned off.
Event ID: 1530
Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.
I always get this warning with XP as well, I suppose something is not unloading quickly enough on reboot.
As for my specs they are as follows:
Abit IP35 Pro
Intel C2Q Q6600
HIS ATI 4850 512MB PCI-e graphics card
Auzentech Mystique PCI sound card
I have three devices I don't yet have drivers
for, they are all disabled at the moment:
- Creative Live! Pro webcam (no Windows 7 driver
- a PL-2303 Serial->USB driver (cannot install driver, 32-bit installer hangs!)
- an ABT2005 ACPI device I cannot identify yet
There are some 32-bit apps running in task manager, loaded at startup. It just won't let me start new ones. As this problem has only started in the last day or two it must be something I've done or installed that's broken it.
Other than the WOW DLLs in the Windows\System* folders are there any other file requirements to run 32-bit apps?
