Subject: Dropouts with Vista

Hi All,

Particularly for Vista/WinSDR users.

I recently moved my operational WinSDR to my wife's Vista computer, which 
has 3Gig of RAM and a fast processor, and never, or hardly ever, has any 
other applications running.

The data I was collecting over the Internet at 200SPS continued to show 
dropouts even though nothing else was running.

This morning I discovered by going into Vista's Task Scheduler that 
something called "Gadget Manager" ran for a minute or so maybe once an 
hour, and it was running at exactly the same times as I was seeing the 
dropouts.  I set it to not run and so far I haven't had any more 
dropouts.  But time will tell whether that was really the problem.

It is possible that the Gadget Manager was a leftover from the "Google 
Desktop" which had been on that machine and which I had previously disabled 
(I thought).  Or it might have been from an entirely different source.

I'm hoping that this might help someone who is seeing the same problem.


Watch our wiggles   (maybe with no more dropouts)

or watch some very very good wiggles
