First off nice work on V3, I just installed the beta2 and it is indeed a vast improvement (UI wise at least) over V2. As far as under-the-hood operational functionality, so far it seems there are still some issues to be worked out, however overall it feels a bit "faster" and I guess I would say I have had fewer problems with V3 than with V2, although I had to remove V2 within 24 hours of installing it due to too many issues. V3 has been installed for even less time than that so time will tell. But, I have already had some noteworthy issues, so .... note: I am running a P4 2.4Ghz with 1GB ram on XP SP2. Here are a few screenshots of some problems I've had with V3 so far. I went to sleep last night, and woke up to a completely crashed computer (not frozen, just a bunch of apps in a "hung" state, and a dialog box on the screen about DCSUserProt.exe having crashed, Explorer.exe was unresponsive, etc. Had to hard-reset the system as normal Start->shutdown was not available) http://www.f2systems.com/files/snap128.png http://www.f2systems.com/files/snap129.png http://www.f2systems.com/files/snap130.png http://www.f2systems.com/files/snap131.png http://www.f2systems.com/files/snap132.png http://www.f2systems.com/files/snap133.png http://www.f2systems.com/files/snap134.png Seems like a batch file that I have set to run at 11:20pm is what caused PG to bring down my system. All that batch file does is download a bunch of HTML files via the cURL (http://curl.haxx.se) commandline program. Late on in the evening (early morning actually) my Backup software failed to run (its a client-server, so I get the error message on the server, "-519, client not available" so I guess the system was sufficiently hosed by then as to make it appear "dead" to the backup server. ...some final comments : - the 'alerts' section flickers wildly while programs are launching and causes CPU to go to 100%, for example with that batch file I mentioned before, it maybe launches cURL 100 times in a row or something, about once every 2 seconds. During this batch file execution, if the PG window is open, it hogs CPU and the window flickers a lot while drawing. Maybe use some sort of buffered drawing technique here to reduce this? - can the 'register' and 'buy now' buttons go away (or at least be greyed out) after you enter a license code? I don't want to be reminded to buy something I've already bought! thanks!
