    Two Things Come To Mind For You To Check:

    1.) Event Viewer (%windir%\system32\eventvwr.msc), run it, use it, & PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR APPLICATION LOG mostly, & SYSTEM log, with error messages, around the time of the 'abend' of the app.


    2.) Use taskmgr.exe, & run it from the startup of your system... be in its PROCESSES tab, & if you see the process list go down, or a process disappear, right before/during that errmsg-abend? You have 'the culprit'...

    * THAT IS, provided it is NOT a service (which are brokered under services.exe/svchost.exe)... to see their constituent processes under those brokers, you need other tools... but, that's when you use #1, instead.


    (EITHER WAY OUGHT TO HELP YOU "ZERO-IN" on the offending process)...
