    I have some kind of conflict between the Partition Magic 8.0 and my system.
    The program works when I start up in safe mode.
    I have been told that is means there is a conflict between something running and the program.
    I plan to start trouble shooting by unclicking all the start up items in msconfig.
    I see there are two entries that concern me if I unclick them.
    scan registry and system tray. Can I unclick them or must they be runing to load windows?
    My plan is to unclick everything, install the program and then add one item at a time until I find the program that is causing the problem.
    Is this the proper method to use.
    I don't want to mess up any more that it has been allready.
