Something has *broken* PG, I'm not sure what. When I started up last night the PG icon was missing from the system tray and only pgaccount.exe and DCSUserprot.exe were running. I tried to run PG manually only to get this error message: I've done a system restore but the problem remains. I have uninstalled\reinstalled PG 3 times now but the problem remains. I'm running as admin but its as if PG is only recognising a user account. I've searched the threads and the only possibly relevant solution is suggested in this thread http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=144200&highlight=procguard.exe Would this work? I'm tearing my hair out over this. I really could use some help.
