  1. As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I created a new account, but it doesn't work there. I have used TweakUI to activate the Administrator account, but it doesn't work there either. It just doesn't work. Revo Uninstaller Pro shows that I have 130 programs found, and of those, I've installed 107 of them (The numbers are out of synch because some were installed by Windows Updates, while others are a part of a package. For example, my printer shows one on the "Traced Programs" tab, but on the "All Programs" tab, it shows 10). All of the programs are working perfectly--except for this one.
  2. Hazelnut, I tried using it from another user's account, but I got the same results.
  3. You're right, there are other logs in the Event Viewer, but there is absolutely nothing in them--no logs, I mean. They are: ACS, Application, Internet Explorer, Media Center, Microsoft-Windows-Forwarding/Operational, Security, System, and then Windows Power Shell, but only the Application and System have logs in them. I am trying to run it the way it was installed, by using the icon, as I've always done. However, this is the first time, since I've upgraded my computer parts and changed to Windows XP Media Center. I know what you're talking about, concerning running it with administrative priveleges, but I'm not sure that that applies to Windows XP. When I right-click on the icon, no such option appears, as it would in Windows 7. The funny thing is that on my old computer setup, and using Windows XP Professional--and even on my laptop, using Windows 7, it works fine, but on this new computer setup with Windows XP Media Center, it's a no-go. Thanks again, Alan, for trying to help.
  4. Thankyou for your time and trouble to help me and to write all that, but it didn't work. It didn't even make an entry in the event viewer, even though I did what you said. I didn't know, however, what you meant by the T_Launch and T_Crash because when I typed those in, it said they are not recognised as either an external or internal command. I found only two logs (Application and System) that had any entries, but they were both entries long before I did your test. Apparently, it opens and closes so quickly it doesn't even have the chance to write a crash log.
  5. I'm sorry. I forgot about the hard drive. I changed that too. It's a WD Caviar Green 1.5 TB hard drive. Brand new. I formatted it before using it and sectioned it into 5 partitions, a 15 GB Acronis Secure Zone (big enough for one backup), a 300 GB drive for all my other backups, 2 x 500 GB drives for data (1 of which is empty and the other has hardly anything on it) and what's left over (82.25 GB) as my C drive. I did it that way because I found that if the partitions are any larger than 500 GB, the computer seems to go a bit slow and sluggish. I formatted and partitioned the brand new hard drive, and then I did a clean installation, directly from the Windows DVD. The DVD is, by the way, a Genuine Microsoft Windows XP Media Center disk and it passed all the Genuine Advantage valadations. I have it completely updated, with SP3 and all the other Windows Updates installed. When I use Microsoft Update, it shows that I don't have anything to install.
  6. I tried both options, first the one like -debug, and the second with the /debug option, but neither generated any report. The only report I have is a file that is named: Recuva_log[1_43_623][18-10-2012_20-5].txt and it says: 2012-10-18 20:05:51] [iNFO ] Recuva v1.43.623 [2012-10-18 20:05:51] [iNFO ] System Info: MS Windows XP Professional SP3, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+, 3.0GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS There are only 3 files in the folder, that one, the uninstall file, and the Recuva.exe file, and that's it.
  7. I have been using Recuva for 3-4 years on both my Windows XP desktop and my Windows 7 laptop, but now that I've changed my motherboard, video card, sound card, and printer, and have changed from Windows XP Professional to Windows XP Media Center, I cannot get Recuva to work. It just flashes on the screen and then it closes, so quickly, that it fhere is an error number, I can't even see if there is one. What woulkd cause that? and how can I fix it? It works fine on my Windows 7 laptop. On my Windows XP Media Center computer, I have already tried installing previous versions, going all the way back to 1.30.435, but they all do the same--just a flash in the pan. I have also tried using msconfig to disable all the services, and even in Safe Mode, and then I tried running a system scan with both AVG and with SpyBot, but neither comes up with any malware threats. Here's what my system looks like: Motherboard: ASUS M2N-SLI-Deluxe Memory: 8 GB DDR2 Video Card: ASUS EN8800GTS 320MB PCI-E Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Printer: Canon Pixma MG5250 Webcam: Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 I'm not sure what the processor is, but it IS an AMD.
