My free version runs great, booting up as it should on both XP & 7. Never tried 8, and don't plan too.

This is normal for HRD. Especially the free. I can't vouch for the 
newest versions that require purchase. The then developers of HRD were 
notified of this and the intent was to separate its operation from the 
the main portion of HRD. They never had a chance prior to its being sold.

Again, I can't vouch for the newest bought version. Hence, the reason 
you see most people using SatPC32, and others. I have noticed this 
problem on every version of Windows I have run, from ME to Windows 8 
including different machine speeds and types.
