Solved Application won't run or re-install except in safe mode.

Specs: Windows XP SP3, Pentium 2.4, 2GB
I have an application called 'Fairshares' which has, until recently, performed as expected but which will now only run or reinstall in Safe Mode. I have not made any changes either to the application or the operating system.

No other applications are affected - what is wrong?

Third party unistaller will remove the application.
Get Revo unistaller.

Real hard to say. A standard xp install may work fine if one or more applications get installed. Problem is that some affect others and MS updates affect them all.

On top of all that is malware. It can do that. Might as well add in bad ram or hard drive.

I'd at least try a restore point to a time when it worked.

If worse comes to worse. Do a recovery to OEM state. Apply security suite and add in all service packs and updates. Then install programs back to the system. Then make an image of the working system.

Perhaps because my question was ambiguous, you have mis=understood my problem. I wish to retain and run 'Fairshares' normally rather than in Safe Mode only.

Thank you,

Thank you for your post. A restore might well have solved my problem but, unfortunatrly, I had cleared all of the restore points shortly before the failure ....
I won't do that again!
