    I tried to update my 2.1.2 version and it says I have to pay again. Is that right? I have two versions of 2.1.2. One was free and the other one I paid for. I tried IE8, Firefox, then Chrome. I finally downloaded the free version with chrome but can't with the paid version unless I pay again...

    "You Must Use WinRE for Unknown Windows instead" on Windows 7 x64

    Dual Boot EasyBCD Not Working

    I did that and the same thing. When I ran fixmbr it said something about a non-standard mbr and I could lose all my partitions. I took a chance anyway and ran it. It rebooted and I had WinXP back but no boot menu. I ran EasyBCD but Vista was already listed. I moved the Vista to the top and...
