  1. Good morning everyone, I've encountered an unusual problem with the Speccy program following a download of the SpeedFan temperature/fan speed monitoring program. I have already notified Alfredo (at SpeedFan) of this issue & he suggested I post the problem here. Problem Description: (All actions described here performed while logged in under my Windows Default Administrator account) Following the Speedfan download, I attempted to run the Speccy program. Under all but two of the system specification items, a red message appeared stating, "Cannot initialize spc.dll." (I have been using Speccy for quite a while now & never had this issue before) I then uninstalled the SpeedFan program via Add/Remove Programs and tried running Speccy with the same error message showing up yet again. Next, I uninstalled Speccy via Add/Remove Programs. When I tried to remove the Speccy folder in C:\Program Files, a dialog box opened advising that removing the folder might cause some other programs to not function properly & asked if I wished to proceed. I clicked on <CONTINUE>. After about 3 seconds, another box opens up stating, "Access Denied...the folder may be write-protected, etc, etc." I then came here and downloaded the Speccy program (from Piriform site). When I attempted to run it, once more I see the red message stating, "Cannot initialize spc.dll." I've run quick scans with Avast AV (free), MBAM, & SAS; All were clean. My question: How can I resolve this problem so I can regain use of the Speccy program? Thank you for your time and any suggestions!
