    Has anyone else had trouble using N3FJP on Vista? I can use it for a while, sometimes 1/2 hr, and sometimes 3 or 4 contacts, then I get a message that Windows must shut this program down. It takes me back to desktop, I re-log in, and it does it again. This happens on more than one of our computers, all which use Vista. Scott from N3FJP says he has not heard of this before. It did not happen when we used XP. Thanks for any ideas.

    I ran it on my Vista laptop for 24 hours on field day without a hitch.

    Have you tried emailing Scott about the problem? N3FJP is usually very responsive to user questions.

    Basic Microsoft Vista questions:

    1. Have you installed Vista Service Pack 1?
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/bb738089.aspx

    2. When you installed your software -- were you signed on as administrator?
    Vista security is different from XP.
    It should be set-up for any user to run application.

    If you have not tried the SP1 like W9GB said, I would try that and see what you get. I use N3FJP on 2 machines with SP1 installed and both work fine. GL to you.

    I would run spyware program to eliminate all spyware and adware and then rerun program to see what happens
