I am actually posting this question on behalf of my mate Steve, who isn't an airliners.net member.
Here is his message / question:
My computer keeps crashing everytime i load fs9 up. I have tried various things like reformatting and still no luck. I've also done a web search for other people that have had problems and no one has come up with a straight answer if there is one. I just wanna know if other people on here have had the same problem and had any cure for this. All my pc does is freeze, I get no error message or anything like that.. please help!
