I know that I can get good and sensible advice from my friends here at SNR so here goes..

right..18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2, which I had used for years without any trouble. However,
there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.

To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1,
Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9. Successive versions of GirlFriend proved no better.

I tried a shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.
Eventually, I tried to run GirlFriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other
they caused severe damage to my hardware.

I eventually upgraded to Fiancée 1.0, only to discover that this product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0.
While Wife 1.0 tends to use up all my available resources, it does come bundled with FreeSexPlus and Cleanhouse2005.

Shortly after this upgrade, however, I found that Wife 1.0 could be very unstable and costly to run.
Any mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife 1.0's memory and could not be deleted.

They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them. Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary,
Explorer and E-mail filter, and can, without warning, launch TurboStrop and Multi-Whinge.

These latter products have no Help files, and I have to try to guess what the problem is.

Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating regularly, requiring ShoeShop Browser
for new attachments and Hairstyle Express which needs to be reinstalled every other week.

Also when Wife 1.0 attaches itself to my Saab93 Convertible hard drive, it often crashes.

Wife 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called MotherInLaw, which can't be turned off.

Recently I've been tempted to install Mistress 2005, but I've been told there could be problems.

A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0 detects Mistress 2005, it tends to delete all of your Money before uninstalling itself.

Any advice would be helpful, many thanks.

reinstall your OS and simply install a few earlier versions of Girlfriend, the younger versions of this software aren't smart enough detect each other.

I would format the whole system and re install drinkmates 4.2 as the O S , You can then use Casual 1.1 as the browser and FreeSexPlus as an add on.
I've heard that More$ash 100 , no_comit 7.2 LadsNightOut 3.1,
Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9 all work with the above without any conflicts or problems.

You may want to consider going open source and use shareware apps. I've heard good things about Linux Ubint2. At least you can try before you buy.

Theres a brilliant bit of Freeware off Tucows called FakeYourOwnDeath. Basically you can wipe the system clean and start again.

I'm not sure if you're running a laptop model but if so I believe there may be some firmware upgrades available which may help to boost the overall visual experience. Also, try increasing your ram.

Am I correct in assuming your hardware just isn't up to it ;).
