I'm really not sure what is going on, some days ago it was working fine and now after AE loads I get the blue screen of death and the computer restarts.
I removed AE and re-installed it, ran check disk and virus software and nothing works.
My computer is up to date and I am running Win XP 32bit (SP3)
Intel Core i7 920, 6gb of ram and a EVGA 8800GT OC on a EVGA Mobo x58 sli le.
ok so far the only thing that works and keeps it stable is holding down Ctrl, Alt, shift. (I read this somewhere)
Is there a reason for this?
That effectivels re-creates the preferences with their defaults. They were probably completely messed up during your first crash and thus caused the consecutive crashes whenever AE attempted to read its config data.
