Microsoft is set to shake up the consumer PC security market once again with the announcement that they intend to stop selling Windows Live OneCare, but instead begin offering a leaner, faster antimalware protection application without the bells and whistles of current security suites. Many users have long felt that it is Microsoft's obligation to provide free security since the majority of security issues are a function of flaws in their operating systems and applications. Essentially, charging for security is like Toyota manufacturing cars with flawed braking systems and forcing car owners to pay extra for seatbelts and airbags. The new Microsoft product, currently codenamed 'Morro', is set to be available for free download in the second half of 2009.

    So all I'm doing is installing the drivers in safe mode? I'm in safe mode as I type this...

    the bold part is BS. The most common source of infection is the user themself.

      So can anyone help me? Instead of arguing over a non-issue?

      Did you read Broni's suggestions in Post #9 ? ?
      If so have you tried that ? ?
      Where exactly have you gotten the drivers from ? ?
      Post a link.

      If you don't tell us what you have tried or answer with info it gets harder to assist...

        Yes I tried Broni's suggestion, I answered it at the bottom of my post with the Everest stats...
        I got the drivers from the link in BC_Programmer's post just above this one. Trying the x1050 driver right now...

          The RADEON 9600 and x1050 link to the same thing, "ATI Catalyst™ 9.2 Display Driver for Windows XP Professional/Home Edition" (which I already have installed).

          They could be corrupt...try re-installing a fresh DLoad.

            what about MBoard drivers?

            Where would I find those? I think my motherboard specs are in an earlier post.
            And I did a fresh install and the game crashed yet again...

              Okay, new update.

              I went to control panel >> system >> hardware >> device manager to do some snooping. I went to "Motherboard resources" and it says "No drivers are installed for this device". Does that have anything to do with my issue?

              Also, I told my problem to my brother, mentioning the info I just gave you, and he gave me a disk. "NVIDIA nForce 2 Series. Motherboard". I put it in and installed it, but the game still crashed and it still says no drivers are installed...

              From Post #5:

              On the Driver CD that shipped with the machine...
              If you cannot find it then DLoad and run Everest Home...save a log to a text file and post the Computer Summary portion here...
