I'm an avid gamer (as you will see in the attached file). Today my computer crashed with the error CRITICAL SYSTEM CORRUPTION for the, I think, third time now in several months. The other two times were a while ago when running RASnes (SNES emulator) and trying to start foobar (a music player, I assumed then that RASnes does not like the UAC that foobar calls because it needs admin rights and caused the crash), today the both programs ran together for about an hour before the crash. I'm starting to think they somehow caused the crash by somehow hating each other.
Other programs running were Skype, Steam, Firefox, Radeon Settings, possibly Thunderbird and possibly Sandboxie (without any active sandboxes).
I don't have any third party CD/DVD drive emulators installed which are a common cause for the issue, such as Daemon Tools, Alcohol and whatnot. I installed two CD tools recently for testing purposes with Sandboxie but did not permanently save any changes so there should have been nothing installed into the system [if you still find any traces of them, let me know, as they are most likely the culprit then]. (I have my CDs in a proprietary format from a program called "VirtualCD" I got many years ago for free with a magazine, but that can't be read by Windows. I could not convert anything and will have to do at some point with my Windows XP partition. This only for info.)
Apologies for the huge list to go through, but I have a lot of games installed. :-) Maybe you find something that causes the crash, maybe it just was random, but I would like to be sure that experts find nothing. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Many thanks for your time in advance!
(Also, in the hours before the crash both Skype and the AMD drivers did an update. Not sure if it is relevant.)
