My PC unexpectantly shut down after I had clicked on a link when browsing a Website of a disk supplier. It re-started, then reported: .... has recovered from a serious error. It then shows the following: Documents\pcname\LOCAL\Temp\WER018.dir00\Min052207-01.dmp Followed by another line: Same again, but ending with sysdata.xml There does not seem to be anything wrong once the PC starts again, but this is annoying. I suppose that many of you have had this happen. If so, how does one stop it n future? Windows Xp Home. 3 GHz. Intel Pentium 4 HT, ATI RADEON 9200 and 160 GB HDD. geedad
Technotiger OK! Technotiger! I will certainly post again if it goes awry again. That has NOT been the first time it has happened, so maybe something else is doing it. I regularly use Ad-Adware and Spybot to keep the PC clean. Also, have Ntl's Netguard AV, and Windows Defender installed. So I have got my guard up!! Many, many thanks for your speedy and helpful response. It is, as I have said many times, a great Forum. geedad
