View Full Version : Vxds, Stack files, MinSPs, system.ini.

My hard drive keeps crashing coming up with some blue message saying problems with stack files, and I need to increase my MiniSPs in the system ini file.
It says it is due to some new software I might have loaded. I loaded a trail version of Symantec Act 6 off the internet, a Personal Information Manager I prefer to Microsoft Outlook, I have had older version of Act I use.
Should I just uninstall Act or is there some other way to try and fix this problem.
Any advice would be appreciated

"To resolve this situation, add the following line to the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file and then restart your computer: MinSPs=4 If the problem persists, increase the number of spare stack pages in increments of 4 (for example, 8, 12, 16). NOTE: Each spare stack page requires 4 kilobytes of memory. "
