Googling has told me that a new program in my running program list (UAService7.exe) has been installed by a game I have recently installed (Lego Star Wars). This is apparently something to do with copy protection. It doesn't appear in the Programs startup folder, nor in the msconfig "startup" list, so I can't prevent it running. It apparently also stays behind after the game is uninstalled. I am really annoyed - I don't want or need this running on my computer (particularly as the game won't even work on my machine :thumbsup: ) Does anybody know what this program is doing? How can preventing copying require a program to run on my computer all the time?

Yes, I'd seen that, but that doesn't explain why this thing is running all of the time, or why it can't be stopped from loading at startup....

Looks like I edited and you posted at the same time.

No, thanks for the link - I'll have a read when I simmer down. It would seem that the bottom line is that if you delete it you can't run the game (not that I can, anyway, unless I get a graphics card :thumbsup: ).... Anyway, I've emailed the game people, I'll be very interested to hear what they have to say about it.....
