Using SP1, by the way.
Ive noticed sometimes that my computer crashes (no! say it ain't so!
[img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] it's bad enough that when I ctrl-alt-del and hit T for Task Manager, the
taskmanager never shows up. I can ctrl-alt-del til the cows come home, and still nothing. if I click shut down or log off,
THEN it takes me back to the desktop and shows the Taskman systray icon and usually sometimes the window of Taskman, but
nothing works. no buttons, no nothings... however processes still seem to be running in the background. Almost every time
this has happened, there's been some dialog box open, but hidden BEHIND other windows. Sometimes I get the "this application
has caused and error and will be shut down" or something, with the send and dont send buttons, but I can't click anything.
At that point I usually get frustrated and start hammering ctrl-alt-del. for every two ctrl-alt-dels that I push, one
process decreases from the number in the taskman. more than a few times now, Ive had the end program dialog pop up for a
program called CiceroUIWND... and the rest of it is cut off. invariable as soon as that one goes, the system then shuts
itself down more or less gracefully. Ive tried google searches on CiceroUIwnd and got nothing. CiceroUI and got nothing and
Cicero + UI which brings a bucnh of hits about some musical/play starring Arturo Ui.
my questions are this: 1> what the heck is happening to my system that
taskman doesnt work and b> has anyone seen this CiceroUI thing before? Ive run NAV and AdAware both to scan for viruses and
spyware, and comes up clean. Im rather confused by it all at this point.
Today's crashes came about when trying to
import names & email addresses from a csv file to outlook contacts. (O2kSp2)
