    Yes I know what the program IS, he said the problems started after he installed it, and then got exacerbated when he put in "holdemmanager2" - Possibly incompatible programs? Or maybe just a failed installation of PostgreS. In either case, uninstall em and/or do a "System Restore". But he said he did a fresh install. Maybe the install files for PostgreS are corrupt, or there were missing prerequisites.

    What do you mean by "format" ?

    Did you return it to factory specs ?

    Glad you got it fixed.

    Good.

    It pays to keep all your downloaded EXE files & serial numbers & needed info backed up on a USB drive.
    It saves a lot of downloading after reinstalling your OS.
    You can update them as needed after reinstalling them.
