Specs: Windows Vista Home Premiu, Core2Duo 2.0 GHz
Hi,
i am using windows vista home premium and it freezes randomly. Explorer crashes and I cant open quicklaunch links but windows minimize/maximize works. Also I have to restart explorer manually despite I set it to restart shell automatically if freezes. Also I run desktop and explorer as a separate process.
Please help , thank you.
Here is the error I get

this used to happen to me all the time. im not really sure what the exact problem was, but i checked my connections on the hard drives and rearanged them on different cables. Dont ask me how this worked but it did for me. Im guessing its worth a try.

o, well that could be a problem then.lol. i got nothin then except a new clean install and no overclocking (vista is horrible with OC, although I highly doubt you are doing that on a laptop)
