    Hello,

    I have Win Vista Ultimate SP1 installed on my computer, and I have been quite happy with it for a long time. However, a few weeks ago (or even earlier), I started to experience 2 issues with my copy of vista:
    - BSOD's every now and then (For no reason apparently). I'm sorry I can't provide SS, but I think it's the "default" BSOD... If there's such thing. It says something about "paged, or memory not paged", not sure.
    - Totally random explorer crashes and a restart afterwards. Here's windows registry of the problem (it's in Spanish, sorry about that):

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you asap.

    Cheers,

    Hi Victor,
    have you updated anything recently? Either by windows update or new software?
    Or have you installed any new hardware?
    Could you also tell us if you employ a cleaning regime with registry cleaners and the like..

    Hello,

    Well, I try to be as much up to date as possible when it comes to Windows Updates. I have to say ever since i updated Ati Catalyst (had 8.7 now is 8.8) i haven't experienced any BSOD so far.

    No, I do not use any registry cleaning software.

    Do you think this is merely a software-side issue? Will updating everything take the BSOD's away?


    Thanks

    If you have your installation disk, put it in the drive and run the repair utility
