It sounds like a corrupt logbook file. What you describe is exactly what happens when it gets corrupt. Find the program FSX log and you may be able to repair it. Or you can remove the logbook file alltogether and start over.

The file called Logbook should be in the following path: documents and settings/yourusername/my documents/flight simulator x files

I had the same problem. I removed the logbook file from the directory, and it solved the problem. I suspect the logbook file was corrupted when I quit FSX by using the "Exit" <CTRL+C> option from the menu available inside the flight screen, and not "End Flight" <ESC>, as I always do. It's the only time to date I've quit this way, and I only had the problem after doing so.

Thanks faust1200 for the solution!

I had this problem as well. After deleting my logbook and 500+ logged hours I discovered this very website has a recovery file. Find it here:

http://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/1675/fsx-logbook-recovery/

As for my logbook, I had a backup and was able to recover all but 20 hours of my logged time using this recovery file!

Explore this website, folks! There's hidden treasures EVERYWHERE!!!

Reboot the machine then you should be able to delete it.

I hav fsx, it worked fine for 800+ hours but then I tried to start it and its said not responding. I tried everything I knew to do: restart, system restore, I even let it try to load for about an hour; but still didn't work. then I went to the site naflod said to and down loaded the logbook recovery system thingy. FSX WORKED PERFECT, still have my hours, this is awesome
