Default Vista + Diskeeper's boot time defrag = Crash

Ever since I decided to do Diskeeper's boot time defragmentation, Vista seems to crash if I'm viewing a video for more than say 30 minutes. It even screwed up Microsoft Office. Every time I opened MS Word I would get VS script errors. Finally fixed that by using MS Office repair feature.

But I can't seem to find what's causing Vista to crash while viewing videos. Even viewing youtube videos seems to crash it. This makes it very hard to enjoy porn videos lol

But seriously, any ideas what could be causing vista to crash while viewing a video for more than 30 minutes? Ever since doing the boot time defrag its been doing it. I don't think its my video card overheating because it stays at 53c. And I have the latest Nvidia drivers as well.

Well it turns out it wasn't the video making my PC crash after the boot time defrag, it was the audio. I updated my audio drivers and presto, no more crashes :)

I have to remember not to use the boot time defrag. It messed up the orphaned files and I had to fix a lot of stuff. Lost all my Opera bookmarks too.
