I am using True Image Home 2009 on a Dell desktop running XP Home SP3. It was working fine. Today, I was going to use True Image to clean up an old 40GB USB drive. I started using the shredder, and after 2 hours decided it would take too long, even though I marked "fast method". I hit cancel, which was successful, as it congratulated me an told me the progress it had made. I closed True Image, then used XP to format the partitions. I was then going to use True Image to remove the partitions. When I tried to restart it, I got the "flash" showing it analyzed all the disks and was "initializing...", the tray marker showed "processing..."This goes on for as long as I'm willing to wait (more than 10 minutes) Using Task Manager, the process is "not responding" and using 100% of the cpu. I rebooted, removed the USB drive, same result. Then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling True Image (sucessfully)- same result. The program refuses to work on this computer. Any ideas?
