System Crash...Program not responding.

  Guardsman2 20:08 02 Nov 2004

My computer frequently freezes when on the net. When I press Ctrl+Alt+Del to clear the problem,I get a box up saying windows is closing STM3SBackmon, It then says program not responding and I click end task and shut down as normal.
What is STM3SBackmon and is there a way I can get rid of the conflicting programme?

Is it an Epson printer Status Monitor?

If you have an Epson printer update the driver from the Epson site.

If that doesn't do the trick - Start>run>msconfig and look for an entry in the start up tab "stms3.exe" and, if there, uncheck it - see if that helps.

Whilst on the internet I got the dreaded blue screen stating system corrupted restart computer. I tried but it would not start so went into setup and set to start from xp disk. This said press R for repair but no go just stated restart so tried again but xp disk wants to format my hard disk.Am I sunk or can I save anything.
