Ok.  Good luck with the repair.   ;)   A repair should fix it.  Let's hope so.  Did you go through the links Steve posted about FSX CTD?  ???

Did you try the logbook repair that I suggested?

John,
remember that a repair will delete all the ORBX FTX Global Base textures and replace them with the FSX Default texture.  You will need to re-install FTX Global Base after the repair.
One more thing if you have Acceleration installed that needs to be de-installed before the repair and re-installed afterwards.
Nothing is simple with M$!
Later,

Spud

Have you tried to run fsx, with the pc in safe mode.
also have you reseated your ram [ unlikely but possible ].
install and run ccleaner to clean the registry. Take back up of registry

Glad you got that fixed. It's great when a problem is fixed.
