It seems Speccy need money to exchange hands before it can be downloaded.
One fact that seems to have been overlooked When it freezes there is no way the system can be returned to service other than using the re-set button, it's impossible to move anything. Removal of the hardware makes no difference. Everything used directly in my front panel will lock it, WITH THE EXCEPTION of my un-powered USB 2.0 4 port 'extension'. My items that lock the system include :-
250 MB Integral USB1.1 memory stick fat file
250 MB Crucial USB.2 memory stick fat file
1 GB cruzer USB.2 memory stick fat file
2 GB Generic USB.2 memory stick fat file
111 GB LaCie portable external HD USB 1.1 & 2.0 Fat.32 file (powered via USB port)
320 GB SATA external HD with 3 partitions 1 x on Fat.32 2 x on NTFS (seperate power supply)
Generic USB (Cheapie) video camera for use on Skype
No I don't use them all together as there wouldn't be enough power in the USB system.
The file systems used in the small memory sticks is Fat, the others on Fat.32 or NTFS. I use the 1.1 Integral stick for moving things between my 98SE system (not on line) and my XP home system that's my internet system.
It has been suggested that something may have altered the addressing making the system not recognise items without the additional interface of the small 4 port hub in between.
