    Giving up and sending it back

    Started slimserver by re-running install, stopped it in MMC, did windows-L
    and logged on as non-admin, started slimserver and slim interface, went into
    MMC, slimserver was not running, started it, it started then stopped "as it
    may not have work to do", according to the dialog box.



    Not sure what that tells me but the machine didn't crash.



    I'm running Windows XP SP2 RC2 and updated my Nvidia drivers (the Asus
    motherboard has an Nvidia card and integrated peripherals such as LAN)

    I run Linux and WinXP 24x7. Both are stable systems. While I would say
    that Linux has a slight edge on stability, WinXP is fine. I run Slimserver
    on WinXP.



    Given that Slimserver runs as a normal process (no device driver hooks,
    etc.), it is very unlikely that the problem is Slimserver. Much more likely
    that you have a driver problem with your network card, or your security
    settings.



    Try this experiment. If you have Slimserver installed as a system server,
    stop the service. Log in a normal user (one without Administrator
    privilege), and run Slimserver. If this actually crashes your system, then
    the problem is definitely not Slimserver, but the Windows system install
    itself.



    Yes, you can stop using Slimserver, and this will make the crashes go away
    for now. But they will likely come back when some other usage pattern
    triggers the problem...



    Make sure that your Windows system is current (Windows Update). Also make
    sure that you have the current driver for your network card. Note: Don't
    depend on Windows Update for your network card--go to the manufacturer's
    site directly.

    Is the embedded LAN the Broadcom Gigabit one? I have this on my Asus
    board and gave up trying to use it with the slimserver (this was under
    Linux not Windows). I took a NIC out of another machine and have had no
    problems since.
