    XP Home, 2.0 GHz, 512MB memory. The problem started after the problems with the TDS3 server updates was fixed (time reference). After an autoupdate and I reload TDS3, it would stop at the memory object scan. I would reboot the system and TDS3 would load OK during bootup. Now it has started to stall 100%. All other configuration selections work OK. If memory object scan is turned off, programs loads OK. With memory object scan on, program begins to load and when it gets to memory object scan it slows down. Then all free memory (298 MB) is consumed within a few seconds, while page memory increases. Program becomes unresponsive and I have to quit it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled TDS3, reinstalled VB6 files, completed TDS3 and NOD32 scans in safe mode. Have also unselected option to start on boot up and start by start up folder instead. No change. Have even tried running in safe mode under Admin (least number of programs running) but it still stalled. In addition ran Microsoft memory check program, everything OK.

    Thank you for helping in advance.

    Please try the SP6 update from here

    TDS shouldnt be set to load with Windows, if you want it to load automatically please create a shortcut in your Start Menu > Programs > StartUp folder to ensure it is one of the last programs loaded

    Log looks clean at a quick look

    Thanks Gavin,

    I had already changed TDS3 to start via the startup folder as per forum suggestions. I then re-loaded VB6 SP - no luck. I then downloaded the SP individual files on your web page and loaded them in safe mode. Still memory object scan would not work. Then cleared the page file on shutdown. No change. Then cleared the prefetch, again no luck. But, I started to think about the VB6 SP files again. What other programs are needing VB6 files to run ?

    It was "Time Sync" by Karen's Power Tools. Its autoload option was turned on. There was a conflict between the two programs. The memory object scan would not run when Time Sync was loaded. I turned autoload off and unloaded the Time Sync program. Now TDS3 memory object scan works! I can still use Time Sync in manual mode, after TDS3 has finished loading. Still don't know why TDS3 didn't run properly in safe mode without Time Sync and other programs not loaded. Maybe it was a combination of turning off Time Sync and refreshing the VB6 SP files. I will drop a note to Karen's Power Tools about this conflict.

    Thanks again

    Very interesting..

    I would suggest you install the SP6 update again since those are the latest available runtime files. I'll have to find some time to update that files page too.. thanks for helping !

    PS I think we will change the object scan somewhat when we rebuild it and this problem should go away
