Are you using any hacks to remove the watermarks or send feedback?

Yes but have been since install and it has been fine untill today.

I also done the same with 6956 and never once had this or any problem, i don't think it is this that causes it i had build 7000 installed since the day it was leaked and always had the watermark and feedback removed just after install and the updates been working great even for weeks untill this morning..

I have a slight suspision it is a hack that makes dreamscenes work that may of caused it but noone else who used it has complained about the issue yet...

Yes you might have hit the nail on the head with that one, I remember when I tried it I had a few strange issues, try a system restore to go back to before you put dreamscene on there. I think Dreamscene is over rated anyway and you soon get bored of it, not to mention taking up unnecessary resources.

The dreamscene hack is terrible as it blurs the text on the desktop...

But that was not the problem, fix here: http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...5-crash-2.html

It was not just me who recently encountered this problem.

I was just reading that and checked my registry entries to see if there was anything to remove but I only saw the default one so I guess I'm not affected by this bug, anyway glad you have it sorted.
