I receive the following error every bootup which does a few minutes crash. It then also can occur later on which does a complete crash and it will not unfreeze until I restart.

Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

The following URL does display some code to run: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950375 but does this solve the problem, or does it actually just hide the errors? I need the crashes to stop and they do occur when I receive an Event 10 ID error.

It's unlikely in my opinion that the crash is a result of this error. You could at least rule this out by running the script suggested.

If that does not solve the crashes, you need to dig a bit in the Event Viewer to find out what's going on before the crash. Sounds like a malfunctioning piece of hardware. Failing boot drive, bad RAM? Run diagnostics on them.

Make sure you are running current antivirus software as well. Run a full scan if that's not been done for a while.

I run my scans regularly. I did read somewhere that another person also had this error. The strange thing is, this error is shown at the times my pc crashes. So I'm not sure. This is teh only error that pops up in the event viewer. It shouldn't be the boot drive, as 2 hours maybe more after booting it ... the crash can occur then. I did do a memtest a while back when this was happening - it shown that nothing was wrong. If it was bad ram, something is triggering it to happen rarely. Other than the crashes, my pc runs smoothly. It knows there is 8GB Ram. –  Jeanie Tallis Jun 27 '11 at 23:03
I'll try the script, it looked from what it stated that it'll only "hide" the error. In my honest opinion, errors are to be fixed, not ignored. –  Jeanie Tallis Jun 27 '11 at 23:04
I tried the script, I also looked for more errors elsewhere - There is a critical one. Source - Kernel-Power. EVENT ID 41. This also looks to be the problem. The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly. Last logged around the time the crash last happened earlier. Ahhh! –  Jeanie Tallis Jun 27 '11 at 23:20
Apparently not. That only occurs when the pc did not shut down properly - clicking the reset button my tower would of caused this. –  Jeanie Tallis Jun 27 '11 at 23:27
