Have 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.

    I suspect it isn't anything directly related to pilot club although
    Fred says this has accelerated the problem. Maybe the extra little
    load has just tipped it beyond limits.
Fred - when you are running FS do you have many other programs
    running in the background or do you shut most of them down?

        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:


        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?
