just a quick update mate,
ive run "max reg cleaner" and regcure" and both found over 600 so called problems, the "regcure" programme wasn't full, it onlt fixed files and to do the other 620 odd errors i have to buy it, which i really dont think is worth it.
ive also done another total clean reinstall of vista, but this time using just the orignal vista disc and not the slipstreamed SP1 disc,
this has made no differance and i still freeze on safe mode at the "crcdrive"
the only other thing i found on google is that most people who freeze on this drive can not boot in to normal mode, but as i reported befor i have no problems what so ever in normal mode.
so im all out of ideas and google pages to read, so any other ideas you have would be great
