    New Toshiba PCs often come with a program with SMS in its name already
    installed, even though this program often causes problems in Windows Mail.
    Check if you have any such program installed, and if so, give us its full
    name.

    Also check if you have the Google Toolbar program installed, even though
    it also causes problems in Windows Mail. If you do, uninstall it.

    Some antivirus programs also cause problems in Windows Mail, although
    seldom immediately. What if any antivirus programs do you have, and did
    the PC come with a Norton or McAfee antivirus program installed?

    Sleep problems are often due to not having the latest updates. If there's a
    Toshiba updates web site for that model of PC, go there and catch up on
    the available updates. Then click on the orb in the lower left corner of
    your desktop, then Windows Update, and catch up on the available updates
    there. You might also check if Lexmark has an updates web site for that
    printer, and if so, catch up on updates there.

    To Joe,

    I have to thank you beyond words for your post here. I bought an HP
    Pavilion 9000 series notebook from Best Buy back in June and it worked
    wonderfully until about mid July when I had my first blue screen
    (0X0000009f). After about five BSODs, I took it to Geek Squad and they
    didn't know what was causing it or what to tell me. I have struggled with
    this for MONTHS. It wasn't until last night, and 15 BSODs later, that I
    finally got this post on a Yahoo search. I did just as you said and found
    the driver that was causing all of the BSODs. It is a driver related to my
    built in webcam and unfortunatly the update that Microsoft released for PCT -
    Streaming Media and Broadcast - Simplo Webcam in July is the cause. My first
    BSOD occurred 3 days after this installation, so I just want to warn everyone
    that this is a horrible possibility associated with that update and I do NOT
    recommend it. I'm going to try rolling back my driver in hopes of undoing
    this change that I did way back in July.

    Again, thank you Joe. You don't know how crazy this has driven me over the
    past few months and your post help me accomplish something in 4 hours that I
    have been working on for months.

    Hoping the rollback will work,
    Brittany
