    Hi,

    Recently I've bought a new Mainboard for my computer, because my old one was messed up. (one memory slot was broken, and 3/4 SATA connections was broken.)
    Because of this, I had to install Vista again. Not so hard to do, backed it up already, so no trouble.

    Now, running the fresh installed Vista, I've ran into some troubles.
    1. Every single game I try to play, crashes after a while, (sometimes after 2 minutes, sometimes after half an hour). It is giving the message: for example: Crysis.exe stopped working.
    2. My internet explorer often gets the same message. Most of the times after 15 minutes, but sometimes it runs a lot longer.
    3. Some other files stop working too, some .dll's which I can't remember the name of ( I believe one is called Desktop Manager or something like that.)

    (quick search in the log files: All Application Errors came up with different .dll files)

    You'll understand, that this is really annoying, since it is a fresh install of Vista, so you wouldn't expect any trouble.

    Can anyone help me please?

    Heh heh, I would expect plenty of trouble from a fresh install of Vista actually, since it shipped with so many bugs. Have you tried installing the service pack (SP1) for Vista?
