FredHave to say I'd be inclined to dump Norton which IS a resource hog and has a fair degree of notoriety for screwing up systems.

Maybe the extra little load has just tipped it beyond limits.Fred - when you are running FS do you have many other programsrunning in the background or do you shut most of them down?bones-----Original Message----- *From:* jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] *On Behalf Of *Alex - Reheat.org *Sent:* 09 November 2006 17:46 *To:* jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx *Subject:* [jhb_airlines] Re: RE WEDNESDAY NIGHT EVENT Bones, It does sound like it could be a resource issue rather than a hardware one, not a driver error as there is no BSOD, not a CPU or GPU overheat as that would cause a shutdown, exceeding total RAM normally gives you a virtual memory error on CTD. Might I suggest adding a little extra virtual memory with some page file optimisation: http://www.petri.co.il/pagefile_optimization.htm That would let us know if its a memory issue and possibly fix it at the same time. Only other thing could possibly be a corrupt DLL or bit of script on the pilot club install? Alex Bones wrote:
