    Hi stevejager,

    ·         Remember to make changes?

    ·         You receive an error when starting?

    ·         Have you tried booting in safe mode?

    Method 1: First of all, we will try to start the computer in last good known Configuration and see if it boots.

    Method 2: If it is impossible to start, try to start in safe mode. If able to start and then try to perform a System Restore, since this is a recent problem that has occurred.

    Method 3: Follow the steps in the below article mentioned.

  • Adobe Bridge CS3 crashes when loading in my Windows 7 workstation.

    Adobe Bridge CS3 crashes when loading in my Windows 7 workstation.
    I've recently completely removed, disabled and reinstalled all my Master Collection Adobe Creative Suite CS3 to fix some problems with another application in the suite, and now I'm surprised bridge continues to fail. In my mobile workstation, the same software (bridge) uses to run.

    I tried to run Bridge under several compatibility modes. All have failed.

    Is there any bug to know, that I should be aware of? Any difficulty?

    Is this a common problem?

    Have you tried to reset the preferences?  Hold down the CTRL key and launch Bridge.  You will get a window to reset.

    By accident, it means that the computer has to be reset?  It freezes?  Error messages?

    Not enough information in other words.

  • Windows media player crashes when you start cd play

    When I insert a CD in windows media player, screen freezes when cd starts playing and the sound is chopy.

    Hi RonnieDean,

    1. Did you the latest changes on the computer?
    2. Are you experiencing a similar problem with a CD you are trying to play using Windows media player?
    3. You have security software installed on the computer?

    Method 1

    See the link below and run the fixit tool available, check if it helps.

    Solve the problems of Windows Media Player video and other media or library

    http://support.Microsoft.com/mats/windows_media_player_diagnostic/

    Method 2

    If the previous step fails, then it is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    I suggest that you configure the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See section to learn more about how to clean boot.
