That's a common problem if you installed Daemon Tools or similar. They often cause system crashes. My advise would be to uninstall any torrent software. Have you checked with the software provider...

That's a Windows system reserved folder. You can't access it like a regular folder no matter what permissions you have. The only way to remove it is to delete the container partition and recreate it....

I'm not sure why you have the listen option turned on for a mic anyway unless you like to hear yourself talk. Skype doesn't work that way. The software you use to record should control the output to...

I don't have any sites but you could Google PC power supplies and weed through the responses. It's basic electronics though. I can't hammer on this enough. You can't assume everyone that has a...

I normally don't suggest hardware but you can scratch door 1 & 2 since they provide less than 200W on the 12v rail. As I mentioned before, you need to look at more than total rated power. Look at the...

I don't see any benefit running 64-bit on 2GB of memory. It will use more memory itself as will any 64-bit programs you add. The address space is still limited and increasing the pagefile size on a...

There's usually temp sensors in a PS that will shut it down. It sounds like the PS is over heating. As I mentioned, if you have to wait, the PS may be hot. But if the card has a short, it could cause...

I still think it may be a weak PS. If you're having to wait some period before the PC will turn on, it indicates the PS is over heating and shutting down.

Wow! Busy system too. The list of loaded modules won't fit in this message box. (Over 20,000 characters.)

Ah ha! Looks like a user program is in a loop.

It appears to me the problem is in Shell32 with perhaps a stack overflow. I've never seen a stack trace this large but towards the top, you'll see "unaligned" and size heap crash. The resulting...
