Event ID 45 - after uninstalling IE7 beta 1

LOL, this is by far the best Event ID I've ever run across:

Event Type:      Information
Event Source:      Application Popup
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      45
Date:            4/4/2006
Time:            3:21:47 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      EID6246
A device driver is leaking locked I/O pages causing system degradation.  The system has automatically enabled tracking code in order to try and catch the culprit.


Anyway, anybody have any ideas as to why my computer, internet browsing, outlook, etc. is running like crap now that I've uninstalled the IE7 beta?  Don't need a lecture on betas, but I would like to figure out how to get back to stable.  I've reinstalled XP SP2, and that's about it at this point.

can you reinstall IE6


download and reinstall and see if that helps

also click start >> run >> type: sfc /scannow
this will restore system files that may have changed
Uninstall IE7. I had two colleagues use IE7 beta as well. It prevented them from using outlook after a few days, and they uninstalled IE7 (which auto rolled back to IE6 and resolved the problem)  Eventually afer a month my computer suffered performance problems (I was not able to surf the internet with IE7 but was OK with firefox) ... once again uninstalling IE7 fixed the problem

Oh sorry I misread, I didnt realise you already uninstalled IE7.. i would be following antub's instructions...

Also from my point of view, if you did a fresh install of XP, perhaps you need to install the latest drivers as you could be using old ones that could be causing the slow down.

lol clock this as a new event error for MS
 these programs, LSPFIX and WINSOCKFIX, will enable you
to regain your connection.
NOTE: It is reported that in XP SP2, the Run command

netsh winsock reset

will fix this problem without the need for these programs. You can also try following sequence:
netsh int reset all
ipconfig /flushdns

info/approaches using the netsh command.

An alternative approach with necessary .reg files which will often work even
when the above doesn't is defined here, courtesy of Bob Cerelli:

Well, I started with Antunb's reply, and the sfc /scannow so far has me back in business, after another sp2 reinstall following that.

Very strange, even Firefox and Avant browser would lock up, along with Outlook.

I'll watch it for the rest of the day, and if everything continues to work, I'll close this question...if not, then I'll work through the other suggestions.

Thanks all.
TheCleanerAuthor Commented:
Well, it's still being a pain in the butt, even after the suggestions.

At this point, I'm either looking at living with rebooting a few times a day for awhile until I can migrate to a new machine, or I may try installing Beta 2 of IE7 just to see if it stabilizes again.
TheCleanerAuthor Commented:
lol, well installing Beta 2 for IE7 worked...

no problems now at all for Outlook, IE, etc.

strange...oh well.  Thanks.
that's how some software goes... never expect perfect behaviour from BETA software!
