Have you disabled any services or such? or do you have any of your temp folders set to read-only?

I must say i've been following alot of your problems through this forum cyanide and it seems to me you might seriously consider doing a complete clean format and re-install since alot of your problems seem to be major random errors being caused by XP and not your software

just my own opinion :)

I'm down for $5.00 that it hits before the SuperBowl, even if you don't really need it, lol.

I think a lot of folks are having problems because they'll flash their bios. A clean installation 'may' be required to pick up on these new changes to the basic configuration of the machine.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
