    Just downloaded Filechecker 1.5 and managed to mess it up already. I`m getting a "Run-Time Error `6`: Overflow after changing a setting on the main screen. :oops:
    Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn`t clear it.
    Can anyone help ?

    You probably set the interval to scan to too high a number (the program is built to scan fairly frequently - and it uses little resources while doing it, so there is little reason to set the scan interval to a very high number - but it's my fault for not including error checking on that one operation).

    If you could PM me your e-mail, I will send you a quick little program I made that will fix it for you. :)

    The e-mail with a quick fix is on the way. :)

    To prevent this problem until the next FileChecker maintenance update, simply don't set the scan interval number to too high a number (personally, I would recommend setting it around 1 - 5 seconds - since it uses very little cpu time, and anything else defeats a lot of the purpose of real-time scanning).
