the difficulty in using monkey is the fact it is simple to use.
there might be a hardware or software error in it on somesystems, but the install and scanning of the program
is straight forward and simple.
but to make sure you get a good install and you want to remove it and then reinstall it.
you should write your lic number down so you don't loose it.
then click the uninstall button.
then use a registry cleaner to get all the left over hotkeys out of the registry that might not have been removed by monkey.
then do a system cleaning with a junk files cleaner like " Ccleaner slim no tool bar " you can find at majorgeeks.com
then reinstall mediamonkey. tell it no do not import the old database if you are asked. which only happens if you had mm 2 on the system before or you did not get rid of the old one doing the cleaning.
then after it is installed reboot your computer, windows always seems to need rebooting on installing programs.
they say that it does not in win Xp but mine always does and the updates from the microsoft update site still require a reboot now and then.
so do the reboot then start up mediamonkey and see if it works for you then.
the magicly imported part in your message is sounding like you had it scan the whole c drive. that will find every file that is an audio file of the type you had chosen for monkey to scan for.
if you want to only scan for music you know is from cd's or online downloads, then you should only scan the folders you put them in.
once you get them in you can use monkey's auto organizer to watch a single folder and add and move them to the location you tell monkey to put the songs. so you can then just download or rip the songs in to that one folder.
that is a good reason for buying the gold version.
