Hi all,
I have a Gateway PC running Windows 7 32 bit system.

I have tried to install and run DriveSentry but have not had any success doing this.

I am able to download and install the DS software. I get to the DS splash screen which appears, then disappears but never get past that point to activate the account.

I currently have Spyware Doctor with Antivirus loaded which I tried uninstalling and tried with no AV at all with the same results... can anyone help?

Also, does the Firewall need to be on or off?

Thanks
Jerry

Have you tried doing these actions using Right Click and "Run as Administrator"
There is also the question of compatibility with Windows 7.

I did try "run as admin": but made no difference...

I thought that but according to the DS site, the 3.4 version (which I used) is now compatible or supports Win 7

Anyway, heard a lot of good things about DS and wanted to give it a try... apparently not..

Thanks

Is supposed to be good...is a good idea aswell.I bought it a while ago but haven't got round to installing it,as i have a few security progs already.Best idea is to contact support at the site.E-mail them,they usually get back to u within 24 hours.
