ghost 10 vs spyware doctor
Dec 11th, 2005 at 10:42pm
 
I have a copy of ghost 10 I bought two weeks ago and all I've seen it do so far is produce "catastrophic failure" messages.

I suspect this might be because I have a copy of Spyware Doctor on the same machine, nonetheless that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.  In fact spyware doctor has a turn-off/disable switch and it doesn't matter whether it's on or off, all ghost 10 does is crash and burn.

Has anybody ever seen ghost 10 work?

Thanks.  But, that's basically more trouble than I'd be willing to go to for the sake of an application which I''ve managed to live without thus far.

Is there some other piece of software which does the same sort of thing which ghost does?

The problem is that I can't think of a valid reason why ghost should conflict with a spyware protection application.  The basic idea of thost is to save off a snapshot of a computer system to a compressed file and then either use that file as a backup for the system or as a means of creating duplicate systems.  That should not interfere withsystem protection software and any effort to include system protection functions in something like ghost is basically misguided.

gungasnake, you must have a busy life. Looks like a three minute job.

That doesn't look like a three-minute job to me and it looks like it has the potential for hosing the computer.

The good news seems to be that the package I bought includes a copy of Ghost 2003 which DOES appear to work.

Thanks.  Somehow or other, I'm not surprised.
