Help with Diskeeper Lite

  prima12 20:21 17 Nov 2003

Hi, I've been using Diskeeper Lite for the last 6 months without any problems. I've done 2 things recently, 1. I upgraded to Sygate 7.7 2. I started to download the home edition of Diskeeper 8.0.but decided not to install it. My Diskeeper Lite that I had not had any trouble with now refuses to open. I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, tried reinstalling from a disc, and from click here. It doesn't seem to matter what I do it won't open. I get the icon on my desktop but when I click on it nothing happens, it just 'greys' out, the same thing happens if I select it from the programs list. Anybody any ideas or suggestions for another speed defragger?

I did forget to say I'm using w98se, so I think system restore doesn't apply does it?

Tried that but without any success, regedit didn't come up with any entries, I even 'end tasked' everything except explorer and systray when I actually tried to install it but that didn't make difference either. I'm stumped on this as it all seems to load OK.

Found 2 entries in H/KEY_CLASSES_ROOT. 1: (Default)C:\Program Files\Executive Software\DiskeeperLite\Df. 2: ThreadingModel "Apartment". I presume I need to delete the (Default) entry?

Reference my previous response, I presume that 'ThreadingModel' is part of the Diskeeper program. I did a search on Google and it appears to be an 'applet'. Would it be OK to delete this entry as well as the other one?
