Hey, for the last two days an error message has started appearing that says, "Reliability analysis metrics calculation executable stopped working and was closed."

Here's a Microsoft report on the errors; dunno if it helps:

Extra information about the problem
Bucket ID: 5868686


A google search has revealed it has to do with RacAgent.exe, a program which runs hourly and gathers information with Microsoft's "Reliability Monitor," but I haven't found anything that really explains this problem.

But what's even stranger is that when I go into the Task Scheduler and show Hidden Tasks it shows that RacAgent succeeds. Weird.

Another strange thing is that this, as of late, has begun to slow down my computer when running. When using Firefox while it's going, for instance, Firefox will sometimes freeze for a few seconds.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm using Vista 64-bit.

Prime95 is a Stress test. Completely Useless for the problem you are having.. Try to do a big system restore.. Or Type COMP.. Computer Management and look for the problem there.
