Most likely related to memory (frequencies/timings/voltages) or CPU voltage too high or too low (if overclocked). System drivers cause this problem too. Did you recently install any hardware drivers like a video card or sound card driver? If so, uninstall, reinstall and see if that fixes the problem. You provide very little information about your system. For Windows 7 Ultimate, do you have the 64 bit or the 32 bit version installed. Is your system overclocked? What does the System Event Viewer say about the crash? Is there a faulting module? The Event Viewer can be opened by clicking on the start button and typing Event Viewer in the search box. Look up in the Menu and click on Event Viewer. If you're not familiar with the event viewer you can go into Windows 7 Help and Support section and type Event Viewer in the search bar there and it will provide more info on how to diagnose an 'event'. Events are recorded for the exact date and time of each FSX crash. If overclocked, lower the clock. Check your memory settings in the BIOS and make sure they are set exactly what is posted in CPU-Z under the SPD tab. Those are the freq/timings/voltages that can be used on your system. If you do a Google search for apphangb1, you'll find hundreds, maybe thousands of reported incidents with no one finding a fix. Here's a link to a similar crash reported over in the PMDG forum - http://forum.avsim.n...3522-apphangb1/.
