    I recently reformatted due to slowing of my computer and things have been great, playing alot of Battlefield 2142 and it looks amazing on my rig, however today I was playing and things were going excruciatingly show, and eventually just stopped. I had to unplug it and turn it back on. I noticed problems immediately after XP loaded up and got on my user. Resolution was to a minumum, my AIM, Steam, and just about everything crashed and gave me the error report message. Everytime I load AIM or Firefox(IE too), it gives me an error report screen, however there really isn't a problem, i just move the error window to the corner of my screen and I'm able to browse freely. But I can't do anything besides that really, my sound drivers are screwed, 2142 takes years to load and without sound isn't much use, I can't really figure out what the heck happened. Here is a hijack log

    Your hijack log looks pretty clean. I would try a System Restore.

    1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
    2. Under Pick a Task, click Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.
    3. Follow the instructions on the wizard.

    For more details see: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...emrestore.mspx
