I searched to see if anyone had any issue after the series of Windows update last week and the week before. I woke up to my system having been auto restarted and looking for the sign on password. When I signed in the system made me wait while it finished the install then it launched perfectly as usual....so I thought...My PC is clean as the wind driven snow..really...never an issue. Run 2x daily back ups...EMSISOFT Internet Security in the background and 2x daily full scan..and SUPERAntispyware with update defs everyday as ell. Block a fair amount of things on GMAIL manually but never an issue. (I only go where I am supposed to be..that is the trick by the way) So, when I went to launch the NEAT receipt scanner that I have used for about 10 years now it would start then a window would pop up right in the middle of it booting..it said there was a conflict with another program basically. I noticed that Windows had auto started Windows Defender...I shut it down..it did not lauch again.. I shut down and disabled my back up software...Macrium Reflect...it did not work. I uninstalled Macrium ...it did not work..reinstalled Macrium..still a no go...I did that with EMSISOFT as well...and I did a uninstall and reinstall of NEAT itself...still a no go...so now what???NEAT will launch in administrator mode...but it will not grab the data file so it is rather useless..unless someone know how to help me get it to read the data file...but I am at a loss...what makes it even worse is NEAT has stopped support for the product becasue now they only sell internet based services...hmmmm??? I do not use (CLOUD) internet based services..I want the good old hard copy...anybody got any thoughts?
