    AirRocker - Did you continue on to the beta download page? The link I posted pulls up alright, but the "download beta" link on that page goes to a parental controls warning, and then to the beta download page at cyberlink where I get the "access error" message.

    That final link is here:

    I was able to continue all the way through just fine... but the link you just posted does give me the access error... Apparently, you have to start from the original link for it to work... Did you try to close out IE, clear all temp, and try that first link again?

    How odd. I've cleared all histories, linked from the start and still go to the error page. Can you post the link to the actual "advisor" download?

    Thought I had it figured out - was deleting histories, not temp internet files, but after deleting both, still getting sent to access error page

    Southern...
    Download was very slow here, too. Firefox usually shows time remaining and a progress bar but didn't this time. E-mail showed up a couple minutes after download completed.

    The good news is that the program installed and worked on my new Vista Compaq laptop with absolutely no problems. :D

    Advisor had a few "upgrades" in the results, but these turned out to be items that met the minimum requirements list rather than the recommended requirements list.
