I have OE running on an XP Media Ctr machine. Pentium D 3Ghz, 1 gig of ram.

OE shuts down randomly when I create a new message. I can create several messages and then all of a sudden, it shuts down without warning. The only way to get it back is to restart the machine.

I have uninstalled IE7 and reinstalled IE6. I would do a system file check but it wont recognize the recovery disk I have from when I purchased the computer.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

A recovery disk is not a Windows disk that SFC is expecting to see, but by inference if you have a recovery disk, all the Windows system files will also be on the hard drive, which is where it should be looking, not at the recovery CD.

It is asking for the "Win XPP CD" however, the machine is running Media Center. The copy is legit so I am not trying to skirt around anything.

I would point it to the I386 folder but there is no option to browse.

I don't know if this was the actual solution but the probelm dissapeared after I uninstalled and reinstalled the vidoe card.

HTH
