Hi:
I'm running NSW 3.01, and have been for at least the last year. On two machines that are networked. The primary PC is running Windows ME/256 RAM/18 Gig hdd/Pent 3-600. The second PC is running Windows 98 SE/128 RAM/10 Gig hdd/Pent- 200.
When I attempt to run Disk Doctor, both machines hang when reading the directory structure item 'hosts'. Eventually after about 10 minutes they will restart on their own. But, I can never complete Disk Doctor. Also, running Speed Disk takes a l-o-n-g time...a few hours, but it eventually gets completed. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hiya

I have had a look for NSW 3, but couldn't find it. I could find, however, Norton SystemWorks 2000 version 3, so I'm assuming you have this.

Has this problem always been occuring, or is this a new problem? The reason I ask is that Norton SystemWorks 2002 and 2001 are fully compatible with Windows Millennium Edition. However, Norton SystemWorks 2000 (version 3.0) and earlier are not compatible with Windows Millennium Edition.

Also, when it is running, what are your rescources like? For each PC, go to Run and type MSINFO32. If it comes up with an error in ME, then Programs | Accesories | System Tools | System Information.

Choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list. If, for ME, you cannot just copy, the using the drop down menus, look for Save as Text file. Then, copy/paste that.

Also, which OS is NSW actually on (host)?

Regards

eddie
