    Also try running redsnow, then open task manager and find the redsnow.exe process. Right click on it, select set affinity and uncheck cpu 0.

    If all the troubleshooting isn't working then it's time to find another computer to do it on. Maybe a friends or something. Redsnow can be a bit finicky sometimes.
