I was having the same problems until I installed the following Windows Update 
file.  As a matter of fact, I got a message from Microsoft after sending in an 
error report that this would fix the problems I was having.  The file is

Now JFW 7.X is working just fine on my dual core system.  I don't have a clue 
what this fixes, but I know it works.

  I've just bought a dual core processor and I have experienced Jaws crashing 
when I shut jaws off then try to restart it. 6 times out of 10 i have to reboot.

  Anyone else experienced this problem?

    I heard that JAWS has problems running on a dual processor, & that you had 
to disable one of the processor in order for jaws to not crash. If this is 
still true, I sure hope Freedom Scientific fixes this problem soon. Like I 
said, I don't know if this info is true. Please let me know what Freedom 
Scientific says.

    Hello Everyone:




    I do not know if the topic I am sending has been written of previously, and 
as a result, if it has, please bear with me!   Let me begin by mentioning what 
my agency is doing, prior to my question, this coming Saturday, May 20, 2006.  


    I am in the middle of starting my own 501 [c] [3], in San Antonio, Texas, 
entitled ACCESS San Antonio, Inc.  We offer Live Audio Description, at various 
venues, to the blind and visually impaired in this area.  We will be audio 
describing the musical, "The Lion King", this coming Saturday, May 20, 2006 at 
the Majestic Theatre; the 7:00 PM performance!  


    Never the les, as a result of me beginning a non profit agency, I wish to 
purchase a new PC, but with two (02) Intel processors, in the mother board.  I 
was just told by a friend of mine, who knows a lot about PC's, that having two 
processors on one PC **can** make applications unstable?  Is this correct?  If 
this is true, than, I may have some problems with running JAWS 7.x?  Is this 
correct?  If so, what can a JAWS 7.0 user do to make JAWS 7.x stable in an 
environment running under two Intel processors?  


    I am asking this question to the Freedom Scientific technical support team 
as well.  Please respond as soon as possible.
