Re: Interesting / Important HotFixes
 
is there any reason y they dont put it up on windows update yet?

Re: Interesting / Important HotFixes
 
the reason they do not put fix is usually that either the error itself is rare or that the fix is as risky as the problem. They put them for the public after longer testing. Not that it does them much good anyway, given their bug count track record...

well not always, many of these fixes will never be released, MS will wait to dump everything in SP1.

stuff that hits windows updates is usually security fixes/exploits and very common issues, everything else have to wait for SP1.

i did install few of them

Re: Interesting / Important HotFixes
 
Slightly off topic but I figure this is a good place to post it considering the fix might just be an update/patch I'm not aware of.

When playing back music in WMP sometimes the computer will freeze. I can move the mouse, the keyboard lights are responsive, and for a few seconds I can minimize and open apps... but shortly after wards the system just hard locks and the HDD activity light is solidly light.

I've never had it happen when doing anything else- playing a video game, watching a movie, browsing the web, etc. ONLY when listening to music with WMP. Any ideas as to why this could be?

EDIT: Downloaded WinAmp to see if an alternate player would work... but absolutely hate the interface. So, I downloaded the Zune software remembering your comments regarding it in my MP3 Player thread... using it for now. I really like the software and if it works without freezing I'll never use WMP again. :lol:

glad you like it, now time for zune player ;)

as far as WMP freezing issue, it could be codec related, try removing any codec packs that you installed.

I've been using the Zune software ever since that last post. It never froze on me once, until just a few moments ago. System completely hard locked.

I'm looking through event viewer right now to see what I can find... this is really annoying. :(

I should probably just perform a fresh install; I cannot though because I have *nothing* to backup my data onto (a LOT of family pictures and videos, as well as lots of music). So I'm stuck waiting till I have enough money to purchase a larger hard drive for strictly backup purposes.

This is absolutely annoying. All I'm trying to do is listen to music. Something my system is more than capable of handling. I have no add-on codecs installed, everything is "stock". I don't use any third party plug-ins, nothing of that sort.

Only thing I found in the event viewers was 7 entries for this error:

Quote:

Session "ReadyBoot" stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188
Which a google search provided this result:

The description reads, "Session "ReadyBoot" stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188". You may also see this error listed in the Overview and Summary page upon opening Event Viewer.

So could it be ReadyBoost crashing? And what would cause that? I'm gonna' disable ReadyBoost via msconfig and see if that solves anything.

Re: Interesting / Important HotFixes
 
have you tried disabling readyboost? plus is anything in your system OCed? if it is, i would try setting everything to stock
