Hi all, I have a spy sheriff problem similar to many people that have posted here. I have looked at other peoles logs to see if I can solve the problem, but I seam to have loads more entries on the log file, this is odd because this machine had a fresh install about a week ago. Here is the log file hope someone can help me soon.
Cheers Gary
