    DMS cartridge works fine in car, doesn't have any disk faults etc and is only 75% full.
    My PC is WIn XP SP2, firewalled & a/virus'd.
    Phatnoise software has been fine for ages, now just crashes if i so much as try and sort a playlist or add a new track onto it.
    Can't pinpoint it to installing any new devices/software, so dont know if something else is clashing with it, but i can't do a thing with the damn thing.
    tried rolling back to previous PMM versions, tried complete deinstall & reinstall, all to no avail.
    anyone else had something similar happen?

    do you have auto update turned on for microsoft?

    probably find some part of MS updated itself and has now caused a conflict.

    Try running regclean.

    Hi Audi5e,
    yes I did have auto update "on".

    I'll go hunt for regclean and give it a whirl, seems likely possible conflict in there somewhere.

    Hi Audi5e,
    well, i ran regclean and it detected and fixed 3 gremlins, but still no joy. Yes, i'm surprised re-install didn't sort it. reckon i have major conflicts going on within XP.
    AVG is the anti-virus i use, so i'll take a look at Ad-aware SE.

    your last sentence sounds a bit like my machine now, so we'll give it a whirl.
