    Hi all, damn im not having much luck lately. A couple of times, now and then i got a bsod when booting into vista,

    "The cryptographic subsystem has failed a mandatory self diagnosis" (or similar to that)

    Now im a bit worried... I havent really done anything to my pc, apart from installing the latest battlefield 2 full patch. (4got my soddin password for my account so had to make a new one grrr....)I bleedin hope that damn game hasnt somehow borked my computer.

    Has any1 had this b4 or does any1 know how serious this is?

    Oh, and everything appears to be A ok in vista, apart from Galactiv Civ II Dark Avatar locking up my pc upon exit
    Thnx for any help guys.
