Having problems with your Microsoft Flight Simulator X for Windows ?

FSX Free Flight shuts off

\015 I recently installed FSX into my brand new ASUS computer with Windows Vista. I also installed My Traffic X. About 30 minutes into my flight, the game shuts off. The message shows that a problem has been found and Microsoft Windows is looking for a solution, but never has one. Any ideas why that could be happening? I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times but always get the same results. Occasionally I can get an hour out of the game without it shutting down on me...\015
