    Is it if you're running a certain illegal 3rd party program. Not saying YOU are...just saying...

    I've noticed a lot of crashes lately too. Only UO, ICQ, UOA, and Ventrillo are running.

    Not only that, the new client seems to have a HUGE memory leak. After 5 minutes of running around I check my resource usage. Processor use is at 40% (on a 1.2 ghz) and memory usage is at 150Kb. That is WAY too much, as when i start its at 10% and 13Kb. -releasemem works for a SHORT period (meaning under 20 seconds).

    I reduced the cache size in my config file, that has helped some.

    The UO client has *almost* forced me into running a script to type "-releasemem" every 15 seconds!!!!!!

    I've usually only have UO and UOAssist running when it crashes. Sometimes Firefox and notepad open as well, but nothing nefarious.

    It does happen without UOAssist as well. When I was crashing just trying to walk across Luna bank one night, I tried to log in without UOA and still had the exact same immediate crash the moment I tried to walk one pace forward.
