Yes... get a registry cleaner and get rid of the stale entries that are left over after BSoD's, CTD's and other nasty happenings.

We were all clueless once! Here, Alex: this will give you a clue, so you will no longer be clueless:http://asknerd.net/index.php?option=com_co...CFQmfnAodl0m1HwThe one I use is called "Registry Healer", from http://www.zoneutils.com/regheal/index.htm and cost U$20, but there are a goodly number of others. I've had zero problems with it, but someone else may care to make a different recommendation.

So first - copy your user files, Alex, such as the FSX.cfg and the logbook.bin, plus any saved situations you might have.. these can go anywhere on the pc, so that you can copy them back to the sim when you've completed the regclean and the FSX reinstall.Next - uninstall SP2, then FSX; Reboot.Run the program: it will look for, and fix any errors it finds in the registry - including FSX errors.Reboot:Install FSX from the two DVD's, start it once, so it can create its config libraries, then shut it down.Reboot once more. Now install SP1 & 2 (or Acceleration)Do a last reboot and then do your general setup and housekeeping until you're satisfied. This will take a couple of hours, but it should fix your problem - OK?
