Ok, first off here is my message I get everytime: ACEDRV09.SYS PageFault_In_Nonpaged_Area Stop: 0X00000050 (0XFFFFF8800D473000,0X00000000000000,0XFFFFFA600A100C02,0X0000000000000000) acedrv09.sys-address FFFFFA600100C02 base at FFFFFA600A0FC000, Date stamp 45cc7c68 not sure on the caps where they go but that is the last message I got. This is a completely RANDOM occurance. So nothing in paticular is causing it. It also doesnt happen everyday... but it does happen a lot. I have tried virus scanners... did a hijackthis log and it was good. I have done pretty much everything I can think of as far as scanning my comp goes. Here is my system specs too: AMD Athlon64X2 6000 dual core 4gb pc6400 ram geforce 260 card creative hifi xgamer Vista Ultimate 64bit Thanks for any help you can give! Also... not sure if it is related... but basically my WMP11 will not function correctly anymore either. For instance.. it will not play ANY .wmv extension files anymore. And when it does play videos it will randomly crash and I have to restart WMP11 (doesnt crash windows though) Related issue??
