    I wanted to update my software TheSkyX Student Edition with the latest download they have available at www.bisque.com
    What a mess, I followed the instructions given to me over the phone when I couldn't follow all the choices I had to click thru on their website.
    I downloaded and then installed the latest version. When I go to the properties part of TheSkyX it says this about itself:
    TheSkyX Student Edition version 10.1.11 (Build 5080)
    Component versions
    Open GLversion: 1.4.0 - Bio;d 4.14.104299
    I immediately saw a change in my PC. Everything is very, very slow. Even typing has a delay effect & when I try to open or close IE it is either slow or freezes.
    I'm wondering if I get directions from this forum to completely remove the entire SkyX then would that make my Window XP run like it was before this version update? If so can you give me step by step instructions. I do know how to remove software thru Control Panel, but I don't think that completely strips it off.
    Here is what I've done so far. Ran a virus check manually with ESET NOD32, ran Malwarebytes (free version), ran Super Anti-Spy Ware (free version). I really would like to dump the entire SkyX student ed completely since I really don't use it anymore.
