1). Move your fsx.cfg to a backup folder - or just rename it: that will force FSX to rebuild it configuration file. If that doesn't work - uninstall SP1 & SP2, then put in your FSX Disc 1 and do a repair - then reinstall SP1 & SP2. If that doesn't fix it - I'm stumped!

i followed your answer and i moved the fsx.cfg to a back up folder and started FSX and aviously it created a new file and i was able to fly normally. Is that the case most of the times with the FSX.cfg

When you get a CTD, rebuilding the fsx.cfg should always be tried first. Some people move their scenery sliders too high for their system or AI is set too high and it puts too many resources on a system so it crashes. Editing the fsx.cfg to add tweaks may cause conflicts too as they may have not been done correctly or they put too many resources on the computer. Rebuilding the config brings everything back to the default and that will normally fix the problem. Uninstalling/reinstalling FSX should be the very last option. Glad to see your problem was fixed!Best regards,Jim

just had to interject a comment into this... When you say:"Rebuilding the config brings everything back to the default and that will normally fix the problem." Does that mean that we dont have to bring the sliders down after renaming the cfg file?
