I'm afraid my FSX has corrupted itself in some way as it seems to crash on a regular basis and it also freezes constantly while flying, even though my fps are in the 20 to 40 range. It freezes for several seconds, flies , then freezes,,and so on ,so, sadly, I will do a complete re install of FSX .
My question, is there an uninstaller for FSUIPC4. I dont see FSUIPC4 listed in my add/remove folder and want to be sure I do a proper clean uninstall. Didn't see any info in the manual, but may have missed it.
PS: I found the information on page 10 of the user guide. Need new glasses I guess.

If you are having problems and reinstalling, if possible, do a complete OS reinstall too. You may have corrupt entries in registry not just for FSX but for windows files etc which could also be causing problems.
I usually reformat and reinstall around every 6 months.....more of an obsessive/compulsive thing rather than for fault fixing. Nothing like a brand newly installed OS

I'm using the security software that comes with Windows 7. I'm not sure if there is an exclusion setting for that, as it seems quite basic. I'll take a look at it though. Appreciate comments and ideas. It's quite possible it could be a slow drive. I didn't see the issue in the default 737, so perhaps the PMDGNGX is just too much for my HD, as you say.
Edit: , I've gone into Windows Security Essentials and excluded MS from anti viral scans. My next step will be to turn on autosave in FSUIPC4 and try a flight with the PMDGNGX and see if it makes a difference. Barring that, pretty much has to be the HD not being able to keep up with a very complex airliner.

All FSUIPC's AutoSave does is call the SimConnect function to save a flight. This normally is a neglibible function -- unnoticeable (unless you'd stopped disk caching on the save drive, or the memory in your PC is pretty full). However, when the PMDG NGX sees a save it stops everything while it gathers all of its massive amount of data for saving too. Whether that exercise will ever be smooth enough I really have no idea. Fast PCs, plenty of memory, defragmented drives, and write caching enabled will all help.

I'm in agreement with your thoughts on this. I'll play around a bit and should I find a solution I'll post it here.
