I use Windows XP Home. My computor often crashes when I make an entry in a text box. This happens in various applications including Office and AOL. When the crash occurs, Ctrl+Alt+Del will not work. My only option is to re-boot. Does anyone have an idea why this happens.
Hi Tony, I purchased a new comp with XP installed a month ago (It is so different from former versions, gawd only knows how students, older people and others who encounter it for the first time in common usage labs, libraries etc will cope - but that's off the topic) Immediately after installation I had to install a raft of very large patches (free from MS. From meory there were 24 of these patches. Have you checked to see that your version is up-to-date with these? Regards,
Thanks to GAZ 25 for his idea to open Event Viewer. This showed many errors for both "True Vector Engine" and "VSS"(Volume Shadow Copy Service. Does this give you a further clue? I hope so as I am baffled.
