    Spiceworks problem

    Spiceworks seemed to install OK, but gets no further than 'Starting up'. I have left it for a matter of hours.

    Pc is running Vista SP2 and I am logged on as network manager. 4GB RAM, AMD Athlon dual core proc 2.6 GHz.

    I can no find no errors in the event logs. Everything, in fact, seems fine, it just doesn't work!

    Any help/suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Have you rebooted? its quite an intensive program, the startup sometimes goes wonky. What does task manager say?

    I have rebooted - I have been trying to sort this for several days! Task manager says: Spiceworks - Starting Up - Windows Internet Explorer Running.

    Sound like you have some malware.

    Vista SP2.

    I've checked with malwarebytes and virus checked.

    Thanks for trying.

    kath I think that was free870's attempt at humour, saying that the problem is Vista SP2.

    We had a similar thing but got it working on IE eventually though it was dog slow :-(

    Took SW suggestion and moved over to Chrome and now it flies!

    I use Firefox or Chrome when using Spiceworks. IE just doesn't seem to like it.
