Well, thanks to my great foresight (), I had downloaded a free trial of a program called POWERSUITE PRO 2008 made by Spotmau a few months ago.. I had already purchased and installed a spare hard drive. This program allows you to clone your complete "C" drive onto either another HD or onto CD's or DVD's. Anyway, I did clone my c drive onto the new hard driive and kept it pretty much current.
When this bug or gritch or whatever it was kept crashing my computer I went to this program and recloned the saved c drive info back into itself...... WOW!!! It went great. All I had to do then is to update the few programs that required it and I'm back on the net!!
They don't offer this freeie program anymore, but they have a PRO version for 50 bucks now...... I think I will get it.... sure worth all the headaches of trying to figure out problems. Just gotta keep a GOOD working copy current! Here's where I'll get it: http://www.spotmau.com/products/pack...m?SSAID=229705
