Ok, Folks. I've reinstalled windows twice in the last 48 hours, and both times my tweaks, which caused no problems before, are rendering Window Messenger useless for file transfer. I can reinstall windows, and it works. I can then reinstall GS3, and everything works. I can tweak my sevices and settings, and everything works. Then, last night, in the midst of recieving a video file that I need to deliver a score for ASAP, the transfer stopped, and I couldn't even send an instant message to my client. In my experience so far, this happens AFTER all the changes to my system have passed the test.
I can still use the internet, just no messenger (not dependably, anyway).
This is very bad for business. Firewalls have been disabled etc. Can't get ftp working either. All hang-ups are unpredictable, and seemingly random. Iknow when your online, anything can change at any time, but this worked for months with no problems. Can anyone tell me which windows services messenger depends on? Any other considerations?
I'm considering dual boot, using my sample hard drive for an internet-only setup, and my first drive for Winxp with GS3 and Sonar.
What should I do?? Please don't say, "buy another box". I can't.
