Programme will not run

  The Bard 12:04 26 Jul 07

When I click on a desk top icon on one particular programme, the eggtimer symbol appears, the machine 'whirrs' and then usually fails to run.the programme. If I reboot, it will ALWAYS run at second attempt. All other icons work ok. I have tried removing and re-installing the programme and even moved it over to my second, back-up hard drive. I have Windows XP SP1.

What's the program? And you should have SP2 installed - it sounds as though you haven't patched your PC for a very long time, which might well be the root of your problem. Also, you might well be full of crapware.

Sorry, my stupid mistake - should read SP2 and is set to automatic updates. Programme is Sage Accounts. Computer regularly scanned for all 'nasties'.
