    On a laptop with XP Pro SP2. Sometimes, when trying to exit TI, I get a little dialog that says something like "Processing. Please wait while TI shuts down". It has a little revolving clock icon that keeps spinning. Once things get like this, TI never shuts down. It just stays that way. What is going on here?

    "Oh thanks alot", he said sarcastically...

    I did exactly what you told me to do and now my scheduled backups will not run at all. I get logs like:

    1 Information 10/26/2007 4:00:05 AM The "Daily Full Backup" operation started
    2 Error 10/26/2007 4:00:09 AM Application module error
    Cannot find the necessary Acronis True Image Home modules. Please reinstall Acronis True Image Home.: oK
    3 Information 10/26/2007 7:39:00 AM Application module error
    Cannot find the necessary Acronis True Image Home modules. Please reinstall Acronis True Image Home.: oK: User replied: oK
    4 Error 10/26/2007 7:39:00 AM Operation has completed with errors.

    Like a complete fool, I did not save the old dll and now I am hosed. I don't want to try and reinstall as I have had problems doing this (see my other posts). Can you send/point me to the CORRECT dll?

    Ok, I re-ran the drivers install. Now my scheduled task runs but it sits there doing nothing. It says that the remaining time is 22 hours. This is just not right. I have been having troubles with this product from the get-go. Troubles getting a complete install, troubles getting my scheduled tasks to run, troubles getting the software to shut down. What can I do? This is VERY FRUSTRATING.

    I and at least one other have confirmed that this problem results from having a USB external disk attached - but only if the disk is formatted NTFS. If the same drive is formatted FAT32, the problem goes away. I cannot say why this is true but there are other programs (virus scanners, defragmentors, etc) that suffer the same fate. I have found that reformatting the disk to FAT32 also fixes those problems. Good luck.
