Spywareblaster and RecordNow

  Graham ® 18:12 11 Sep 2004

Windows XP Home. Went to update Spywareblaster. Windows Installer opened in front of it, installing RecordNow. It can't find file xxxx.pix.ini. I try to cancel,ignore, but can't get rid. Restart, it comes up again.

System Restore unable to restore. SFC found nothing.

Now it's gone to 4 bit colour!

Tried to uninstall RecordNow, but says it's in use.

Scanned for malware, nothing found.

Uninstalled Spywareblaster, still the same.

Everything seems to be working (apart from screen resolution), I can log into PCA. Can't understand why Spywareblaster started all this.

Back at 7:00.

System Restore?

Thanks, not just me then! System Restore won't restore. Tried to uninstal RecordNow in safe mode, but Windows Installer not running.

Getting nowhere! Going for a XP re-instal, I'm all backed up and ready to go :-)

Back up and running!

Now you need to install Spywareblaster again! Eek!

I'm on the horns of a dilemna. That's if dilemnas still have horns.

I have successfully resisted posting what I first thought of writing.

Create a Restore point. Then try and keep everything crossed.

Do you think I should uninstal RecordNow first?

  VoG II 12:29 12 Sep 2004

If it will now uninstall then yes.
