Well that first fix got rid of the error message but my computer stopped shutting dowm, well re starting in about 1 min. after the monitor went black and it took 3 more visits to M$ to resolve it...they are a piece of work and were I more knowledgable about linux or what ever at this point I'd jump ship but my livlihood depends on art apps for windoze so for now I'm stuck.. ...

Sigh, spoke too soon I did. shut er down[1:30 A M] and checked from the T V room for an hour before I retired and it stayed off, and in fact was still off when I got up for water at 6:30 A M but when I got up at 10:00 A M it was sittin there humming contentedly to itself. Any idea how to figure this out?

They may not be related to the other issue.

Does this [microsoft.com] give you any pointers?

Thanks man, gives me more to check out. It mentions Roxio/CD Creator problems but I only have the Power2Go software that came with this Gateway e machine. This is a replacment for my old w2k internet box that finally died so I imported it's tiny 10 G drives to this machine as folders. Adaptec folders exist in those Directories tho so could that maybe be causing a problem. They show up in a registry scan but don't reside in C:\Program Files so I guess they're safe to delete from the list. I'll post after I try the first and/or second but I don't mess with no BIOS stuff...if it comes to that I'll call a knowedgeable friend to help.. ...
