I acknowledge that this means I have too much time on my hands and should get a life, but I've been playing a lot of Win7 Spider Solitaire lately. Over the last week or so it has started crashing on me unpredictably. I click somewhere and get the standard screen whiteout and then "the executable for Spider Solitaire has stopped working" and the usual restart or check for a solution and restart.

I haven't found any references to this online - has anyone else experienced this?

Note I am talking about spider crashing, not Windows.

Does it show a file in this crash? I would look in event viewer. Go to the orb type eventvwr.msc. Then go to windows logs / applications. And see what errors are there. To do with solitaire

Go to Programs and Features, tell it to remove it (from windows components) and then put it back.

But really you should go get PG Solitaire instead.

None of that means a lot to me - any ideas?

PCTek - I'll try that and see what happens.

But really you should go get PG Solitaire instead.Removed, rebooted, replaced. Worked a couple of times and then fell over again. Is there a plan B?

BTW is PG Solitaire Pretty Good Solitaire?

Techy: As part of its user interface, an application has tried to operate on a procedure that monitors the system for certain events, without specifying which one.

Non-Techy: It's stuffed.

Try the remove and add back.
