Microsoft ActiveSync Connection Manager Crashes Windows

WinXPsp3home ...ALL versions of M$ ActiveSync crash windows immediately (shuts and reboots with ''recovered from serious error'' message) when the pulldown ''get connected'' is selected.  This worked previously.  I have rolled back 2 weeks to no avail.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled ad nauseum in windows and in safe mode.  I have tried clean install of version 4.5 as far back as version 3.51 and nothing works.  I am very sad about this and cannot seem to find any posts anywhere to fix this!  I used RegCure (supposed to work best) and CCCleaner (also rated well) to see if the registry is the problem...no better.  I searched the registry for errors that might ''look'' bad to the novice; can't seem to ID any troubles.  What can I do?

    what, pray tell, would shorting the "leads (leads=leds)" on the power cable acomplish?  I would, if this is a true approach of value, appreciate a pointer to some reference material showing this to be a buona-fide method applicable to a PC?

    this will discharge any extra capacitance in the usb port and it will work again. you only short them for a little time, once you plug the cable back in, they're not shorted obviously.

My internet explorer windows vista doesn't work.


Interesting problem. Have you tried installing another internet browser such as Mozilla Firefox? I love Firefox it saves my tabs/open webpages if I select that option when I shut down the PC even if your PC crashes 90% of the time it will have your tabs/pages saved. The only problems I have experienced with Firefox (minor issue) is some websites hosting videos that are "save as" won't download but this happens rarely. Firefox is also
less vulnerable to phishing and hacking according to the Mozilla website http://www.mozilla.org/

I have had nothing but problems with Windows Vista since I got my Acer Aspire 5610. It crashes daily or 1-2 times a week. I have heard Windows Vista Premium is a better version, but haven't tried it. I know you can purchase installer discs from Acer on their webpage but don't know if you can get them in Windows XP. I have considered dumping the Vista and paying to get XP installed instead.
