On the 27th Jan I d/loaded 4 Windows updates. I believe it is since then that Flight sim has crashed once or twice and also on screensaver when I return to the PC I have twice found ' the system has recovered from a serious error' message. Also Webroot Spysweeper has just told me that there is a conflict between Win and a software programme ( possibly a threat). The Win updates were KB 890175/890830/871250/891711 . Any knowledge of problems with these. Thanks.
freaky, Didn't have to do a restore as an fs restart cleared it, but fs didn't seem very happy. The first thing that happened last week was that the joystick un-installed, but had the CD for that. I have also down-loaded a couple of small fs add ons that I am having doubts about, so will un -install them first then follow your advice. Thanks.
