Hi can you use system restore to reset your system? As error 42 is a corrupt registery I'm not sure it will work but is certainly worth a try.
Under Vista, start and type in system restore and select the nearest restore date to the day it crashed and follow instructions.
Under XP, start, programs, accessories, system, system restore etc..

Hope this works.Let us know how you get on.

Have you ever cleaned the Temp files off your PC? Sounds like you've used up all your temp file space.

Download and run CCleaner (www.ccleaner.com). This is a serious "degreaser" for the PC, best tool ever made for serious housekeeping.

OR simply go to Start/Control Panel/Internet Options. Under Browsing history, select Delete Temporary Internet Files.

While there, may as well delete your Cookies since they hold your surfing profile.

I get very low speed


Low internet speed? Computer running slow? If this has to do with your internet you may want to contact your ISP and discuss with them why you are having low speeds. If this is not related to the internet then you should try upgrading RAM and possibly Processor speed.
