    Tech info

    ati3duag.dll-Address BF1710B
    Base at BF0B2000

    It is also making some of my pc games crash...whatever this thing is.
    I have trend Micro as my antivirus and it did pick up a trojan a bit back.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    ati3duag sounds like a file thats related to your graphics card drivers. Are you running an ATI branded card? Try updating to the latest drivers from

    This is a common problem on ASUS motherboards. Also related to JAVA, and to the automatically installed Windows ATI drivers. Bad RAM is a frequent cause.
    First, update the BIOS, or assure you have current.
    Download latest drivers so you have them handy.
    Temporarily Turn off Firewall. Turn off Antivirus and antispyware software
    Remove all ATI software. Use RegClean to remove ATI stuff from registry.
    Boot in safemode. Reinstall drivers yourself. Do not allow Windows XP to do it.
    Now reboot.
    Run memtest from Let it run for 6 to 10 passes, or four hours, whichever takes longer.
    That aggravatingly long repair effort fixes most computers giving the ATIduag.dll or ATIDvag.dll problem
