Computer Rebooting/BSOD/Freezing Problems

  1. I have been having problems for over a year where my computer freezes. I cannot play any computer games (other than maple story) because of this. Guild Wars freezes, stepmania freezes, etc. But, in the last week, it has gotten much worse. It suddenly started rebooting when I was using MSN messenger and sometimes rebooted when using Firefox. Sometimes I get a BSOD during a freeze, sometimes I freeze but get no BSOD.
    Here are some specs:
    Windows XP Pro SP2
    PCChips M848ALU V. 2.1 Motherboard
    NVidia GEforce FX 5200 Graphics card
    Sound Blaster Audigy LS Sound Card
    onboard lan


    What can be causing these crashes/freezes? I attatched a few minidumps too!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    All your minidumps crash at MFX.sys. I believe this is part of the PC-Magic Encrypted Magic Folders software.

    Uninstall the programme and see how your system runs.

    I will try this now. If I continue to have problems, I'll post new minidumps!
