posting in this auto rate thread even though I found this on mm 3 auto rate, it might still be doing it on mm 4 auto rate.
if you are using auto rate with the option to rate songs after they have been played, and you are getting strange things to happen like mm just stop playing or closing down, or other programs stopping such as the msagents djamp dj program, on xp or possible win 7 if you got any other programs that run by active x or win script and they are acting up when you play music.
Turn off the option for auto rate to rate the songs after they have been played. only use the option to rate them on start up. for some reason that option to rate after songs have been played is messing with the win script and active x programs and scripts.
have to quote myself here.
in the above last line says ( for some reason, )
I found the reason so it might not be doing it on your systems but keep a look out for this because it is a sign of things to come.
it foreshadowed my pc chips motherboard going out.. could not even boot up. no beep just flashing lights on all the dvd drives and the usb back up as it was trying to find someplace to boot from, it just ignored the backup so something was messed up on the pc chips board. If you look in the my signature a lot you will notice now I'm down one system, I yanked the motherboard from my old work system which was built like a tank and it is now in my jukebox.,
I thought I should just come back to this thread and post what was the reason for my errors in case you all were wondering.
