Hello everyone

I have Trados 2011 on Windows 7. I've installed it long, long ago, and have worked on it a number of times in the past.

Less than a week ago I got this message (Insufficient privileges - Error 108), so I quickly googled for it, found a recent thread about it, read that I must start the Nalpeiron service, and then did as I was told -- I discovered that Nalpeiron was not started, so I started it, and Trados worked again.

Today, I got that error message again. No problem, I thought, I'll just start the Nalpeiron service again. Only, it was already running. So I stopped it and started it again. No luck... Trados keeps giving me this error.

So... what's the next step?


Added: The next step, apparently, is to reboot and let Windows install updates. Does this mean Trados will always stop working when there are new Windows updates available?
