Turns out there is something fishy happening with my BB Desktop Manager software and BB drivers that is crashing the system!!!
Now I'm trying to uninstall the program and it freezes upon near completion, and XP is still crashing and restarting.
At this point, ALL I want to do is COMPLETELY remove ANY files and drives associated with RIM or BB. For those looking to the obvious, I can no longer do a manual "Add/Remove Programs" task, since it is no longer listed. Neither can I manually remove the drivers through the Device Manager.
What files should I be looking for to delete, and what alpanumerics need to come out of the system registry. HELP! Otherwise, I'll have to wipe the Hard Drive and reinstall Windows, and I'm really NOT looking forward to it.
If you get this far, I might suggest trying (if you already haven't) installing the Desktop Manager without Media Manager. We noticed that it adversely affects performace.
