According to the power strip the computer is plugged into, it appears there was no surge (a light would have changed color on the strip), so I don't know what happened that evening.
And-the program appears to be working again, so go figure. . .:doh:
I know there is a new version of DVDFab out there, but according to my friends who have this one, and considering this is Vista I'm dealing with, I'm really not sure how much of an improvement there will be and what headaches that would cause.
