Hey,
I'm having a recurring problem with FS2004,
I did a flight from Ottawa to Toronto, and another from Toronto to Detroit, and both times, about an hour into each flight the view outside of the aircraft goes all weird. It seems like the horizon goes higher, and the view of the ground alters, kind of making the world look like the crazy kitchen:

(don't know who these guys are)

I have weather set to update every 15 minutes, if that helps, and all visuals inside and of the plane are still a-OK,

It may be that your CPU can't handle the weather and the sim (too old).
You have a scenery problem.
Or some other computer related problem, list your system specs and then we could possibly help.

The vid card is an ATI, 128 mb I believe, if not its 64, but im 90% sure its 128 mb,
My system should be able to run MSFS2004 no prob,

Also if anyone knows, where is the command in WIndows that enables or disables programs from starting to run in the background when ever I stat up my computer,
I think it was called MSStartup or something,

If it's a 128, that fine, a 64 can be a problem.
Open your case and clean out the fans with compressed air. The cards fan, the CPU heatsink, power supply and if you like, add a fan on the rear grid of the case to expel hot air. Cost, about $20 at any store, an Antec is good.

Here's the program you wanted.

Sweet, thx Radar, I think it's time to clean the dust bin,
Does dust really screw with the fans that much to inhibit performance?

Overheating can make the sim crash. It's a big factor because the sim is so graphic intensive.

I think a good catalyst for the problem is programs running in the back ground,
your link is not working for me, but i was looking for something like MSCONFIG,

The link works, do you have an account at avsim, it's free.

Try this one. It's still to avsim.
