Re: Multiple crashes with XP

I have one application that can claim the distinction of being the only 
program ever to crash any computer I've ever owned, though whether or not 
this quirky application might behave in a more stable way if it weren't for 
Jaws and my use of the keyboard instead of the mouse, I don't know.  But the 
Audible Manager program used by the online digital book vendor audible.com 
has been the cause of enormous aggravation, many a system crash, many a Jaws 
hang, and countless hours wasted on telephone technical support, however 
good natured that help has been.  And not my operating system, nor my 
system's  resources, or any other variable seems to have been implicated. 
On my old Pentium 3 machine with Windows 98 S E, and now on my Pentium 4 
machine under XP Home with SP2, it misbehaves and sabotages me incessantly.

If I didn't appreciate this service so much for the literature I obtain from 
it, I'd have broken off my connection with it long ago because of this.

There.  Done venting.

Hi
Is it a specific program that crashes  all the time, or just random all the
time no matter what program ou open? If JAWS crashes then it's JAWS at
fault, if not then it's probably the specific program. In my experience
I've always heard that if you upgrade from 98 SE to xp without
reformatting, you're gonna have a lot of problems. I really think it's
probably the specific program that's crashing, JAWS shouldn't necessarily
be the fault of all the crashes.
