Thank you for this detailed email, it contains very useful information.
As I see that you have not tried yet, I would like to suggest you to start with a clean boot, and check if the problem persists with as few other programs as possible running. Don't hesitate to let us know or to edit your ticket with your observations.
Thank you for your response i tried a clean boot with my duel boot OS of windows 7 which is really there just for this reason, it is a new install with all current directx, visual basic c++ sp1 with current drivers. I don't even have anti virus on that installation of windows to rule out any thing that as a cause. The only other program installed is flash player and java.
The only start up program i have in the task bar are the volume control still the same results if you need me to work with cs to track this crashing down be glad to help
