After a few computer crashes, hwinfo32 will not run


New Member
My laptop crashed a few times today due to losing electricity. Since then hwinfo32 goes away shortly after starting. I have rebooted and have de-installed and re-installed the program. No change Within less than a minute of starting it disappears from the process list and I never see anything from it. (windows 7 laptop)

Sorry, how or where do I get that?
After much time I found that if I have the program start with main screen showing, it will stay up and I can start sensors, then minimize both and it runs as I'm used to. Apparently only when I have it start without showing anything (and sensors running) is when it has the problem.
