Hi, again. Lately I have had a problem on FSX where, when I try to save flights, it freezes for a couple of minutes. Then, a message comes up that says a 'fatal error' has occured, and then I have to shut down the game and start over. What do I do about this? Thanks for the help!

How many saved flights do you have? My PC is pretty powerful, and it still takes a good minute of two to load the saved flights page. Check the saved flight file and see how many are in there.
If there aren't that many, press Ctrl Alt Delete and see how many processes are running. My experience tells me that with the more processes running, the more likely it is to have a CTD.
To give you an idea, I have about 30 processes running, but my sisters new computer, had 90 running, straight from the factory. If this is the case, try shutting down some of the non essential processes.

Well, I deleted all my finished flights so now there are none, plus the flight plans, but it still does this. Thanks for the suggestion, though. To Everyone Else: Please Help!! I need to know what is wrong!
