    My computer crashes on average four times a day. Sometimes the crash occurs while I am using the computer, usually in MS Word with the consequential loss of the work. More often it crashes while I am away from the computer. When I return, I find a notice on the screen stating..The computer has recovered from a serious error. I file an error report and the response is Driver Error but the driver cannot be identified. I have disconnected everything I can think of, found new drivers on the web and installed them, but the crashes continue. Some of the error reports attribute the failure to memory, On the advice of a person on another forum, I downloaded Hijack This, ran a scan and am posting it here in the hope of getting help.
    Being a first time user of this forum, I ask forgiveness if I am in the wrong place.

    Hi Legionaire,

    I see nothing obvious in your log that should be causing any problems. Your log looks clean to me.

    Regards,
