I'm running Vista Home Premium 32 bit on a Dell Dimension C521 with an AMD aAthlon 64x2 processor, 4 gb of memory.
I spent a long time uploading music so I could use Windows Media Centre as my stereo centre. I have the remote. It's great. I can make and play all kinds of playlists, music by genre, album, artist... I'm channelling it into my receiver through a Cambridge Audio DACmagic. Sounds excellent.
I bought a Nikon D5000 and everything went well for a while. There was no conflict between any programs.
Then (why?!) I ran Ad Aware! Ad Aware identified 13 cookies it thought were a threat. I removed them.
Now every time I try to run my Nikon programs, WMP crashes and with it WMC. Also Digital cable device registration application crashes.
What I have done:
1. I have used computer restore to go back to the point before the cookies were uninstalled. That didn't work.
2. I uninstalled the Nikon software using Revo Uninstaller and re-installed it. Apps still crash and, strangely, every time I exit View NX (the app that reads the Nikon photo files), I get a window that says it's stopped working. Something in there is having trouble recognizing my actions from...
PS. if I remember to stop the song in WMP before uploading photos I'm ok. I can turn the app back on when Nikon Transfer's done its work. but I really want to run all these things together... as before.
Thanks in advance.
Light bulbs you shouldn't buy
There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
