ProcessTamer / Re: Process Tamer crashes Vista
« on: February 25, 2008, 12:20 AM »
Thanks for the GREAT information - will do!
Is there any way to cause the system to CAPTURE this info (logs, etc)?

Using your suggestions, I determined that Process Tamer IS NOT THE CAUSE of my Vista crashes.

My apologies!

Now if I can only figure out what IS crashing it.  It was ROCK SOLID for almost a year - not one crash!

Thanks for the GREAT SOFTWARE!


ProcessTamer / Process Tamer crashes Vista
« on: February 13, 2008, 11:15 AM »
Process Tamer crashes Vista.  About once a day.  It's only happened once or twice while I am there - it usually happens overnight.  If I am there when it happens, it presents the BSOD briefly, then goes through a reboot.  After the reboot, Windows posts a message that it has encountered a problem and will notify me when a solution is found.  I can't find any clues in the Windows system logs, but perhaps I don't know the right place to look.

The processes I am taming are:
sidebar.exe (2 instances)

All these are set to "Force Low".

I love the program, but can't live with the crashes, so have suspended using it until I hear from you with some suggestions.  I guess an obvious one is to stop taming, and then tame one item at a time; however I am hoping that you can direct me to a system log that I can look in for some clues for you.

Thanks for the super support you provide.

ProcessTamer / ProcessTamer Tray Icon does not display in Vista
« on: January 23, 2008, 12:12 PM »
The tray icon for ProcessTamer does not consistently display in Vista.
When I check what is running, it shows that ProcessTamerTray.exe IS running, but the tray icon is not displayed.  If i try to start ProcessTamer in this state, it is not allowed to start (because a copy is already active).
If I KILL ProcessTamer that is running in the background, it will terminate - then when I re-start it, it does display properly in the tray.

It is a WONDERFUL PRODUCT, but this is annoying...
