Today I had the first big trouble with PG3: I started the application MP3Gain (from http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/) which is a software for normalizing mp3's. I loaded a folder on my harddisk in order to normalize the 160 mp3's within. MP3Gain started normally and began to work. But after some seconds the application hung. I tried to close it but that was impossible. Finally I found out that I couldn't start the taskmanager nor the command line - Windows was frozen. There was nothing left than to press the reset button. After rebooting I started MP3Gain a second time with the same effect - I had to use the reset button again. In the event viewer I found the following application error three times: Fehlgeschlagene Anwendung dcsuserprot.exe, Version 126.96.36.199, fehlgeschlagenes Modul ntdll.dll, Version 5.1.2600.2180, Fehleradresse 0x00011e58. Sorry to have this only in German but I think it is understandable for all forum members. I made a third attempt and disabled PG3. Result: MP3Gain worked flawlessly. Jason - do you have any explanation for this problem?
