Thanks Gwendall! Yes, I wish I had Windows 7 too...I swear Vista is a deliberate scheme by Microsoft to make more money. ):
Mineta: That's quite alright.
I went through each of the four steps in the other thread, with the following results:
Method 1: No memory errors.
Method 2: No viruses.
Method 3: Having problems with this, since using Windows' add/remove program doesn't seem to have enough permission to uninstall. Help?
Method 4: Currently clean booting, and the program still crashes upon start-up.
Also ran an SFC scan:
"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them."
It also produced a set of very cryptic log messages, which I can post up if need be.
