Hi i wanted to try out the 3.0 version of Media Theatre but i have a major problem (WinXP Sp3 AMD X2 4200+) as soon as i try to start the application my pc resets ???
This is crazy i was shoked i deinstalled 3.0 then and installed the old 2.0 .113 trial and it worked no reset then i updated to .129 and it was still reseting ???????? (yep it's a hard reset like somebody pushed the reset switch no bsod crash, automatic reset on bsod is off)
Then i reinstalled and found that up to the .121 update it wasnt reseting starting with .125 it resets something major must have changed in the application start procedure that can cause heavy problems it seem not sure if someone else experienced the same ? or maybe someone has a idea what could cause the resets ?.
The System as such is stable i tried several stability tests ram,cpu everything is fine under full load. The last time i had such problems with a application was Securom it showed also these kind of strange behviours so Media Theatre seems to go very deep into the OS since the .125 update
Cyberlink and Corel Products work fine no resets there (PowerDVD/WinDVD)
My Mainboard is a Asrock Dual Sata 2 with ULI Chipset latest integrated 2.20 and AMD Processor drivers (amdk8.sys)
also with .119 i had problems with Threatfire saying the application tries to hide processes i set it on the exception list and its fine now (and yes i tried to deinstall threatfire but still PC resets starting with .125)
Not sure what i can do i fixed a lot of Application problems but dunno what the Chinese Coder doing here that the PC resets (interfering into the Kernel ???)
My Personal Opinion about this is NO Application should use Malware/Rootkit like strategies in it's normal running that is no clean coding but can cause trouble all over we saw it with the Securom disaster
