check start = run - msconfig -startup and see if arcsoft is ticked. If it is take the tick out and restart windows. Then try using it - if it will not then go to add/remove progs and remove arcsoft. Restart and then try a clean install. Some of these devices require the software to be installed before you plug the dongle in.

none of the two indoor aerials work mate need either a decent indoor booster aerial or better an outdoor or loft aerial.
