Paint Shop Pro break down

  jack 14:50 28 Jul 2005

Paint shop pro after a period of use seems to degrade and 'lose' various aspects of its self.
Inserting the disc and actioning 'Repair' does not always resolve the situtation, where upon there is nothing for it but to remove it, clean up and re indstall.

Why does it do it?
Other large programs remain perfectly stable- for example Word in its many guises.

I have been using PSP Pro for many year since its Dos 3.1 incarnation and have never had your trouble. It must be something to do with your setup. Can you start your computer in minimum mode by removing all software not need from your start up menu, then run PSP and see if the fault recurs. If not, gradually replace the start up programs until you generate the fault . This should show you which program is causing the trouble. That is not a very good explation! perhaps someone else can do a better one.

Agree with Bagsey, also been using PSP since version 3, and never had a problem. Version 9 is perfectly stable, so I would look to other thinks such as resources as suggested. Some of PSP's actions require quite a lot.

Bagsey and Ventanas
Will follow your suggestions, in a while 'cos fully engaged in a system re- build -at moment
got the bits, set em up -dont work- back build machine - raise queries with supplier- waiting their response - thats computering for you.
I have to say though. it is not just me with this problem. A buddy said yesterday when I was at his place with our Digital Darkroom Group'[We all use PSP as a common learning tool]I cant find top task bar'and true enough it had gone.
So I am going to see him 'one to one' next Monday.

Are you talking about the bar at the top which shows the Camera icon , discs and printer icon etc. If so click on view and you should see a tool bar command click this then make sure that the standard tool bar box is ticked. Hope this is of help.
