How old? Have you recently installed new ram as well? Registry errors such as the one you describe can either be due to new ram, or hard drive failure... more info please!

Yeah, mine is doing that at the moment -- a right pain in the proverbial. :-(

The cause of mine is either something The Girl has downloaded, probably with MSN Plus, or it was the AVG anti-virus update that was downloaded and installed a couple of days ago. They are the only things that have been changed since it began happening. I plan to try going back to a previously working registry restore point and will hope for the best.
