I have a good one!!! Sometimes when I select a menu item; such as aircraft selection or a clickable gauge in the cockpit, the computer restarts!!!
NOT just CTD, but restarts!!! No warning except a quick sucession of 'mouse clicks' and then restart.
I asked about this before in the scenery forum. But I don't think that this is it. I think that there is something going on where FS9 demands a certain amount of power etc and the computer can't handle it,,, or something. I think this because of the restart and not a CTD.
My computer is a good one so I think that power is not a problem, Maybe a virus? Corrupted file?
ANYONE else have something similar? Please let me know. I would like to find the quickest fix before I begin a drastic surgical procedure
Run your anti virus then run these two. Dump your cookies before you do.

Don't forget to defrag at least once a week.
If it still continues we'll try something else.
Thanks RadarMan!! It is getting frustrating!!!!
DIDN"T work!!!! This computer is kicking my !!!
I did the scan disc and defrag. Nothing!!! I just tested it and when I selected something, in this case aircraft fueling 'ok' selection, it re-started again.
I read another thread where someone was having trouble with a log book something or another,,
Maybe there is a FS.cfg jam up. I did re-build the .cfg, but it may be rebuilding with the same corrupt/defective file?!?!?!
Any more Ideas before I have to re-install!!!!??
You just did work inside your computer.
Check all the cables, make sure the cards and memory chips are reseated tightly, clean the fans especially the CPU fan.
Personally I don't think holes in the side of the case is a good idea. The case is built to be tight with only the fans open to the outside world, that's why you shouldn't run a computer continually with the side off. You just do it for checking.
Other comments about this from anyone with experience?
I agree RadarMan. I placed the holes in a clean manner at the internal fan intake. Through a filter as well. I referenced a install diagram/instruction for this.
I hope someone can come up with something.
