    Hi Jard,

    You know what the problem is, and the solution is obvious - don't overclock
    the system. What exactly do you expect to gain by doing so? It's not like 15
    years ago where overclocking gave you noticable performance increases. Vista
    is sensitive to specifications, stay within them. Overclocking leads to
    hardware faults that are not within tolerances. It's not a bug if the system
    hardware is not running within manufacturer specs.

  3. I agree completely. Overclocking makes no sense at all. Unless you
    have the absolute fastest personal computer available, you can always
    get the same results as overclocking by spending a few extra dollars
    for a faster machine (and without the crashes, risks, etc.).

    Looking at it that way, overclocking is a way to save a few (very few)
    dollars and still get the greater speed. But it makes no sense to save
    so small an amount of money to run only a little bit faster and put
    your hardware and your data at risk.

    I'm overclocking my computer by over 30 %, and I had the explorer.exe crash, but because I had a partition problem, I made a reinstall. And since then I haven't had a single explorer crash, although my cpu is still overclocked. So this cannot be the (only) issue.
