Windows 10 64 bit. Finale 14.5
I have be operating OK for a few years. Think I had a problem at the outset but can't remember the details (some kind of corruption in the registry). Anyway …
I'm not a power user but recently I went to attempt an arrangement & finale seized up. Wouldn't start. Would not even let me access task manager to reboot. A couple more attempts and then my computer would not even boot up. Had to have the bios redone @Microsoft. I reloaded finale & the same problem. Finale just sits there and spins wheels. Then I get the error from Windows ….collecting data … will shut down and restart. Cpu works good now but I uninstalled finale to be safe. I am out of the arranging business until I figure this out.
I recently uploaded the musescore program to take a look at some interesting arrangements on that site. Could that be the mistake. I don't think so ...maybe some other malware?
