My PC has Windows XP. In the past few weeks some small program called “dfrgfat.exe” has been repeatedly crashing. I’ll return to my computer and there’ll be a dialog box saying that dfrgfat.exe has committed some unforgiveable computer sin and has been shut down by Windows. Would I like to close it or debug?
I generally close the dialog box through the X button. I suspect that dfrgfat.exe is related to the filesystem in some way.
Adobe Premier has begun crashing as well, always during the stage when it’s checking the files in a newly-opened project. I suspect that this problem is related to the first.
My computer had been running warm during the heat wave, but I applied extra fans and have not gotten enymore overtemp warnings.
Virus scans, etc, haven’t found anything new. I use ZoneAlarm, Firefox, Thunderbird, and OpenOffice.
I still have that damned Internet Explorer redirect problem though; six months of trying with every tool I could find didn’t get rid of it.
Is it just time to wipe my boot drive and do a Windows reinstall? I haven’t wanted to do this because I’m in the midst of projects, but if I have to…
