    Take a look at the System and Application logs. Check for Red X's. They are a good indicator that something went wrong. There are also Yello !'s which give you information.

    post 3 or 4 minidumps as a zipped attachment for analysis or download the windows debugger from M$ and check it yourself. (much better)
    Also download crap cleaner (free) and use it religiously. The registry repair tool is very handy.
