i had to try scanreg /restore twice, going back to the 24th to get started. errors were 2 blue screens: exception 06 occurred at 0028:E85F661C in vxd...called from 0028:C1A7F7F8 in vxd EMU10K1(01) + 00016518, then fatal exception OD at 045F 00003FB1 and then the black screen: windows protection error-need to restart computer (and then a picture from my x-rated files). just did a scan at trend housecall and no virus was found. :confused:

It's a Sound Blaster DOS Emulation driver. Not sure what to tell you to prevent it. But if I had it and it kept happening, I would remove Sound Blaster and custom reinstall it without DOS Emulation.

No, but it's a good idea to try that first. I don't have SB so I can't really provide personal info, just what others have reported -- and sometimes the "disable" doesn't seem to resolve some issues.
