Dear all, Suddenly whenever I try to attach an attachment to a hotmail email, as soon as I try the screen goes blue, and it says that its having to shut down to protect the system. It goes on to mention bios and a few other things but before I have chance to read it my PC shuts down. It’s a new PC with ( 8 months) loads of memory left. I’m unable to take a screen shot of the blue screen but I did get this.....

Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID: 2057

Possibly your security software scanning emails.

Were you using webmail?

I was just using my normal hotmail account. How would I know if the security was to blame. Im using Norton, how ever every thing was fine a few days ago. Nothing has been added or removed?

"Normal hotmail account" - but you can access that using your browser or through Live Mail. Which are you doing?

All sorted now, unfortunately, things seemed to get worse and I wasn’t able to open documents as well on my c drive. I tried to reinstall my PC using my recovery discs as I suspected a nasty bug in my system. The said bug then stopped my PC from starting windows and I’ve been forced to do a clean install. Everything is back to normal (pity Norton didn’t stop this) except that I have now lost all my ITunes music.

Is there any way to put it back onto my hard drive from my I pod?
