I've got a situation when I try to load FS9, it starts to load normaly but goes back to desktop after I select my flight. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Still happens. Help please.

This may have nothing to do with your problem but...
I recently contracted a virus and several "spybots" which got through my usually robust defenses. After deleting (a long process) these little buggers I would CTD every time I started the program. After much hair pulling and searching (I've NEVER had a CTD with XP before!) I decided to search my BIOS settings. Lo and behold, the bus speed was changed from my AMD 2100+ of 1733mhz to1300 mhz.
I have no clue why this happenned, but changing it back to 1733mhz solved all my FS9 CTD's.
I don't know if this is helpfull, but if all else fails...check your BIOS settings.

Make certain that when you uninstall the sim you get it all. Most people leave the folder in "My Documents", the uninstall system doesn't seem to dump it. Try again and search out all files and folders, some are hidden and you have to check that box in the "search" mode.

One of the flight files might be corrupted. I suggest you delete all the flights in your Flight Simulator Files folder under My Documents. You will loose the flights, but your problem should be solved...

Gentlmen: I found my problem. After much hairpulling, I realized that I wasn't getting past the loading sceneries stage. I reloaded the last thing I put on my computer ( FS Genesis Mesh) and all is well. Evidentally, if a scenery or mesh doesn't get installed correctly, this sort of thing can happen. Thank you for your responses.

This was happening to me for the first time in years...
Over time, a lot of junk can creap into the registry.
I've been using RegCleaner for years to get rid of them
BUT, this week came across a program called RegScrub, ran it,
and it found dozens of errors which RegCleaner had not...
RegScrub is also safer and easier to use, for those who know nothing
about the Registry. AND it is also FREE.
In addition, also got Norton's System Works this week,
it blew my mind, took a long time (most of the day) to run
all the Utilities... It found 167 more errors on the system...
Between using these two, it stopped my problems.
Get a set of FREE - Wings - Mailed to you, just like the image..

Here is the link to RegScrubXP 3.25 but I've used RegVac, not freeware and it has a very safe "novice" mode.
It does have a 30 day trial period.

it's not the mesh being installed incorrectly, it's a number of factors that, during specific times of the year and in specific locations, lead to a crash-to-desktop. Add-on mesh will make this problem occur more often but it also happens in a few places with the default mesh. The "bug" is also known as the "seasonal CTD" and if you do a search here or in other forums you'll find several posts that describe the available work-arounds.
