What's your computer setup on Crashing computers ?

Just trying to understand if there is a computer setup that makes it prone to crashing. 

Our setup:

We use a mini PC (corei5, ssd, 8gb ram) as our main pc.  This PC holds all the data files.  This machine checks all returns, prints and efiles.  This is the machine that crashes.

Connected via network is a desktop where I input all data accessing the client file on the main mini pc.  This desktop does not crash. This machine does NOT efile.  I can print into PDF here without crashing.

Both machines have the same Windows and proseries updates.

It seems that the efile system on our setup is the only thing different on the 2 pc's.  Is it the culprit ?  Let us know your setup so maybe we can see if there is a pattern.

It's been a very frustrating season.

It's still a mystery to the Intuit engineers so I don't think it is anything you are or aren't doing.

Barber! Why didn't I think of this before? Getting paid to give out bad tax advice - need I say more? I've run with scissors for years so it is a natural fit.

Most of my crash related to the file name clr.dll in Framework, Microsoft.NET

See if you have a Windows update available to download.  The patch available in Windows did help some folks.

Windows patch did not solve the problem.
