What operating system are you using and how much free space do you have
on your hard drive.
I've just run into the same startup, then freeze behavior with Ed 3.2. Am using Win XP recently applied SP3, 4GB free disk. Win Task Mgr shows Album Starter Edition using 50% CPU with 23MB RAM. I've tried restarting in Safe Mode, and uninstalling then reinstalling.
I'm havine the same problem. I had 3.2 alreading on and working and then it just froze one day and I've unistalled it but it will not work, it shows it's on there but it never finishes loading. When I restart my computer it says I dob't have VIC32.dll file and I don't even know if this is associated with this program. Any help would be much appreciated.
Is this happening if you do NOT use PSA SE? Generally when the system
freezes it is because the system is looking for something and can't find
it or two files are locked and can't get free of each other. Are you
getting any other errors?
At this point, one of the best (and simplest) things you can start with
is to just clean the drive and defrag it. When you have to shut the
system down because it freezes, it can create temp files that increase
the frequency of your problems.
You could start with something like CCleaner or even the Windows
tools... www.ccleaner.com is free and easy to use. It also has a
registry cleaner. I've used it for several years now and like it. There
are also other free products on the market that can help here too.
I did a quick search on this file. It appears to be part of some adware
known as ISTbar. Apparently it is a bit of a nuisance, but here is a
link that might help you out. YOu do not necessarily need to use the
product they recommend. You could use a freeware app as well. I did use
the Paretologic product, but as I recall, it is not free and not
necessarily the best.
cnet.com generally has a good review of different products that are both
free and for profit that you can assess as to whether they will meet
your needs or not.
