I've been using Crypt Edit, a freeware word processor,
for more than a year and use it for pretty much all my
writing. Suddenly last week as I was writing something,
it shut down on me. A message popped up saying,

"PolySoft Crypt Edit has encountered a problem and
needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

I haven't been able to bring it back since. When I
try to start it the logo comes up followed by the same
notice quoted above.

I tried reinstalling it but that didn't change anything.
The company website doesn't seem to offer support.
I use WindowsXP and tried system restore but that
didn't bring it back either. Although I should say my
system restore didn't seem to be functioning correctly
either. It didn't offer any dates previous to the initial
problem.

I was on line at the time because I have an always
on broadband cable connection. I don't know if that is
relevant. Anyway, I've really grown attached to that
software and now I feel like I've got a sick pet and
can't find a veterinarian. I guess ultimately I could
try reinstalling the entire OS, but before that, I'm
hoping somebody might have a suggestion for
something less drastic. I will be enormously grateful
for any help.

If you have spybot search and destroy, and been deleting everything that it detects, you most likely deleted one or more files that needs to be use to run the program. I suggest reinstalling your Crypt Edit program again and try to open your encrypted files using Crypt Edit prior to running spybot.

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't
have or use spybot. I do use a
registry cleaning tool called
jv16 powerTools and I'm afraid
I might have accidentally deleted
something necessary.

By the way Crypt Edit can encrypt
but it's basically just a good word
processor. I don't use it to encrypt
files and I don't have any encrypted
files. I just want to use it for normal
writing.
