Karen asked a question:
I have a 2yo computer and recently upgraded to SBC 3 and MM3. My computer has since stopped printing to my photoprinter, and when I tried to fix it, it completely crashed. I use Vista and wonder if it is SBC3 and MM3 that are causing my problems. Should I move these to a newer computer? Has anyone else had this problem?
I know that MM3 and SBC3 use a lot of memory and could be taxing your computer.Vista is also a memory hog. Loading a lot of content to SBC is rough on the computer as well. I am not sure if they could be the cause of complete crash. There have been some insidious viruses transmitted lately through other means and a few people I know have been unwittingly affected by these.
If you tried reinstalling your printer and remembered to choose that printer when dialog box appears( I have been guilty of this myself). Then I am unable to be of much help personally. Unless of course you just need some faceless blogger to give you permission to buy yourself a new computer (I don't subsidize this kind of purchase myself, of course.)
MM3 has updates that could be necessary for restoring function to your beloved friend. In the technical realm I am less than an expert and Creative Memories does have nice talented people on the other end of the phone lines. I suggest you call them, Update Virus Protection and look into removing spyware and temp files.
Anyone with more help for Karen, I will be glad to pass on any info. I have been experiencing trouble of my own with the upgrades and fear that is what has created this lack of interest in working with it for y'all's benefit. Sorry, maybe my gumption is coming back. I did do a gorgeous macro pic and applied a mask to it the other day. I think I will add it here for my own amusement. :)
