and when I do Ctrl+Alt+del I get

smc is not respdoning

What is smc? At the moment I am assuming it is Sygate Firewall. I have tried ZoneAlarm, didn't like it. I have tried Outpost, didn't like that either. Sygate has been pretty good so far but if smc is something to do with Sygate then is it time for another change?

smc is part of sygate, as for another change, that's your choice, although a quick reinstall might fix it.

Shame on you Pete for not telling us something you tell others to do! ;o)

Its 98se that pj uses.

  pj123 17:47 26 Jan 2005

Sorry everyone. I am shamed.

I didn't think it mattered what O/S was being used. Djohn is right I am using win98se.

I have just downloaded it again and done a reinstall as JonnyTub suggested.

I will see how it goes now and report back.

Will keep this thread open until then. Thanks.

ps, the newest free version is 5.6 build 2808

  pj123 18:07 26 Jan 2005

JonnyTub, yep that is the one I have got.

  JonnyTub 18:08 26 Jan 2005

How's it going ?

  pj123 18:12 26 Jan 2005

JonnyTub, so far, so good. Early days yet, I will give it a couple more days and report back.

Still good so far. Not had any problems since the re-install.

Hopefully this will continue.

Will assume it is now fixed and will tick.
