My guess is that it was either a corrupted install. Many anti-virus programs do not like certain sinstallations and should be disabled when installing the porgram.
Perhaps a URL of the download, or was it a CD, will assist..
Are your bookmarks and settings now back.
Can you NOW start in Safe Mode.
Is this of help for the problem
- Is your graphics card on the MagicTune Compatibility List? Click here to verify your graphics card is compatible.
I've read several threads from google search of "this computer system does not support this version of magictune"
Some folks seem happy with it, while others are frustrated!
At best, MagicTune seems to be "temperamental" when it comes to playing nicely with other software and drivers.
What you might try...
--- At least temporarily disable any non-essential items in your Startup file (you can do this via MSCONFIG)
--- Try updating your video/graphics chip driver (from Computer's website), and if not, then from Chip's website.
At least a couple of other references which I searched suggested a conflict with security utilities.
--- What Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware do you have installed?
Do you have the same difficulties when browsing with Internet Explorer?
---(I ask because the most recent update of Firefox 3.6.15 was a security related update)
--- What version of MagicTune do you have installed?
------ Note: If you decide to download a newer version of MagicTune, be sure to uninstall the current version before installing any newer.
Note: As with any trouble-shooting and application installation/change procedure
-----------Create a fresh Restore Point, and backup your Registry prior to making changes.
Personally I would just leave it as is., without the programs installed, they are really only facilitating what can be done in Windows anyway.
I am not quite certain that the system restore problem is related to this issue.
as above Can you start in Safe Mode.
I do not recommend you test system restore by simply trying it, just in case, you have another problem.
What anti-virus do you use please.
