    Hi!
    I've just downloaded and installed MRU Blaster 1.4 (Database 12/07/02)
    When I try to run it, I see only empty (white) window with blinking title bar. CPU usage=100%

    I have Windows XP Pro +SP1
    MSCOMCTL.OCX ver. 6.01.9545 (from MS Office XP)
    msvbvm60.dll ver. 6.00.9237 (from system installation)

    No viruses (KAV 12/06/02), no spyware (Adaware 042-24-09-2002)

    What’s wrong?

    BTW SpywareBlaster works great!

    You seem to have the correct versions of the two files you mentioned...

    What version of MSSTDFMT.dll do you have? It should be 6.0.88.4.

    I haven't had any other recent reports of this problem. :doubt: If you could send me an e-mail at javacoolsoftware@hotmail.com with more details on your system (such as what programs you have running in the background, etc.) I would greatly appreciate it.

    Also, if you get a chance, would you mind trying to run MRU-Blaster in safe mode? (And also make sure all non-system tasks are ended). If you still get the problem, I could then rule out a potential conflict with another application.

    Best regards,

    Hi jc,

    The most recent version of this file that I can find is 6.0.84.50.

    Any idea where I can get an update?

    Regards,
    Kent

    If you aren't experiencing any problems, it might be best to leave it alone and not worry about updating to the latest version. ;) Who knows what software you might "break" by updating that file to its latest version (it SHOULDN'T break anything, but its an MS dll, so you never know).

    The MRU-Blaster setup program includes the newer version of that file - but only installs it if no earlier version is present. You could rename your current version to MSSTDFMT.bak (or something similar) and run the MRU-Blaster setup to install the newer version, but again - if everything is working find I would recommend against it.

    Hi Jc
    MSSTDFMT.dll version was 6.0.84.50 (from MS Office XP), now is 6.0.88.4 (trick from your previous post)
    Problem still exist, in safe mode too. :-(

    Email with more details is on the way
