    Win XP, basic set up, 128ram, 40 gb hdd.
    I took the advise of others, I downloaded and installed the latest
    version (Free) of Everst home edition.
    It begins ok, then just 'locks up' when it begins "scanning PCI
    devices"...? I understand they don't do 'support' on the free version?
    what should I do?....TIA

    First of all, check your Device Manager for any
    conflicts. If all ok there, uninstall and reinstall
    Everest, and download it from an OFFICIAL source.

    According to the faq
    you can try the commandline options /SAFE of /SAFER

    Thanks Mike, I'm sure there is something else wrong here.
    I uninstalled, re-installed (was downloaded from their site)...
    same thing, locks up? no = no conflicts (device manager).
    I did try this some time back, with Win ME...just the same!
    Thanks again,

    Thanks for your reply Ingebor...
    Unfortunately, I don't know how/where to enter these options? I did
    re-visit the site and have now read the FAQ's, thanks. Is it at all
    possible you could advise/assist me with entering option of /SAFER?

    Create a shortcut to Everest, and edit the "Path" argument.
    Path = "C:\Program files\Everest\Everest.exe" becomes
    Path = "C:\Program files\Everest\Everest.exe" /SAFER

    Use this shortcut.
