    hi all,
    I had downloaded the trial version of the Home 11 version and it seemed to work fine until I decided to purchase the software and installed that version.

    Started getting blue screens of death, prefaced by
    "Windows has recovered from a serious error"
    and BSOD:
    "A wait operation, attach process or yield was attempted from a DPC routine"

    I followed a thread at

    only to then get " Unable to initialize snapshot manager library. Unable to open (initialize) computer"

    Any thoughts on what might be causing this?
    I have Windows XP (32 bit) with SP2 -- probably I may have had installed SP3 in the meantime.

    thx much,
