Question about Mackie Tracktion 3 for PC, Mac

2 Answers

I have mistakenly set Tracktion 3 to search for VST plugins on my C: drive when it starts up. Now it starts searching and then crashes after a while. I can not change the settings back because it needs to do the search before the program opens up properly. I have reinstalled, restored etc etc and have tried to find a registry key that might start the the search so that I can delete or change it. What, where would this likely to be in the registry?(how can I recognise it?. Or is there another way to change these settings? Thanks ****

    I have already uninstalled and reinstalled it as I said in my original message.

    I have found information from other sources which said that a registry key is created by the program and when the program is uninstalled the registry key is not.

    This is also the case when I use system restore as the registry key is a file which is not altered by system restore or uninstalling.

    So, somewhere in the registry is a file that the program looks at every time the program is started which then tells it to search the c: drive for plugins. In other words its not part of the Tracktion software but a file created and updated by the program.

    I need some advice about how to find and delete or change this file (registry key) so that when Tracktion starts up and looks at the file it tells it to not search the c: drive

Hi there

You will need to do a deep uninstall to remove every component of the program. Please download Revo Uninstaller here.

After installing, launch it and use it to remove Tracktion 3, choose the Advanced mode.

When you click Next, it will launch the program's normal uninstaller. Follow it through as you did before to uninstall it.

Then, if asked to restart choose No. The continue with the Revo window to continue with its own removal process. When it finds registry files and other files, just choose to select them all and remove everything it finds. Ensure you click Delete before clicking Next.

Eventually it will remove everything to do with Traktion 3. Install T3 again now.

Hi how do i install the etool meta search engine toolbar in my firefox

This is very easy. In firefox, go to and open the page. You will see down the page, a list of Search Plugins. To add the search engine to firefox, just click on Plugin for Metasearch . Confirm that you want to add the search engine to your browser. After that, you can select it from the search engine list. To manage the list, click on the down arrow right next to the icon in the search engine bar.

Hope this helped.

Google chrome keeps crashing not sure why

You need to check out all these:
1. Check for Conflicting Software:
- Some third-party software can cause Google Chrome to crash. When this happens, you'll see the message "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. It's possible that you have malware that can cause Google Chrome to crash.
- Google Chrome has a hidden page that will tell you if any software on your system is known to conflict with Google Chrome. To access it, type chrome://conflicts into Chrome's address bar and press Enter.
- You can try to fix these crashes by updating, disabling, or uninstalling any conflicting third-party software listed in "about:conflicts" on your computer. Also, take a look at Google Chrome's known issues for specific solutions to resolve crashes caused by some software.
2. Scan for Malware
- This includes malware and network-related software that interferes with Google Chrome. Malware can also interfere with Google Chrome and cause it to crash.
- You can try using Malwarebytes, or other anti-virus software to scan for and remove malware or you can also try searching the web for information related to any conflicting modules listed on the chrome://conflicts page (Windows only), to see if there are other steps you can take to remove malware.
- Many crashes are caused by malware. If you're experiencing frequent crashes, try scanning your computer with antivirus software.
3. Solve Flash Crashes
- We have found that the Flash plugin Chrome includes can cause it to crash in some cases. If you are seeing regular Shockwave Flash crashes, you may want to try disabling the internal Flash plugin and using the standard Flash plugin in Google Chrome.
4. Switch to a New Profile
- Chrome crashes may be caused by a corrupted profile. You can test this by creating a new profile from Chrome's Settings screen. Open the Settings page from Chrome's menu and click Add new user under Users.
- Change to the new profile after creating it and see if the crashes continue to occur. You can sign into Chrome with your Google account to sync the data from your old profile. However, Google recommends you don't copy any files from the old profile folder by hand - they may be corrupted and causing the problem.
5. Fix System File Problems

- Google recommends running the SFC.EXE /SCANNOW program to check for - and fix - problems with protected system files on your Windows system if you are encountering crashes. To do this, locate the Command Prompt in your Start menu (press the Windows key and type Command Prompt), right-click it, and select Run as Administrator.
- Type the following command in the Command Prompt window and press Enter:
- Windows will scan your computer for problems with system files and fix any problems it finds.
6. Hardware issues
- It can also cause Chrome crashes. You may want to test your computer's RAM and ensure it isn't faulty.

· If still problem not solve, maybe you should try these simple steps:
1. Try restarting your computer first. It could be that the computer has just encountered a slight glitch on your system, which is causing things to not work properly.
2. Remove and Re-install the Google Chrome application. Doing this will allow your computer to read the files a lot better and faster, and also repair any damaged or corrupt files that have been causing the issue. To remove the Google Chrome application, first insure that you have another browser, such as IE or Firefox, click "Start, Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs," locate "Google Chrome" click UNINSTALL next to it. When the application loads, select "REMOVE" (not repair). Follow the uninstall process, and restart your PC. Problems uninstalling or re-installing Chrome indicate mal- or spy-ware, which must be dealt with.
3. Remove any extensions that you have on Google Chrome. Although they are a great way to personalize your Internet browsing experience, they are not so good for speed and functionality, as many can cause the application to crash. To remove any extensions follow these steps: Open up Google Chrome. In the address bar type chrome: //extensions. Click Uninstall, or Click Disable if you think you may use the add-on in the future. Restart your browser.
4. Disable plug-ins. Chrome can get bogged down with plugins that you aren't using, also. Type about: plugins into Chrome; it will redirect to chrome://plugins. Disable any that you aren't currently using.
Hopefully your Google Chrome crash problems are gone. Hope it works. Sharing is always caring.

0404 installed but cubase vst 5.1 will not load it stalls when loading vb-1. I had the same problem with an auditgy card any ideas on how to fix the problem? Geoff

vb-1 is a cubase virtual instrument this is where cubase was stalling, When i uninstalled cubase i went into the vst plugin folder and saw the folder vb-1 [virtual bass] I read the text file within and it told me to copy the dll files within into the active vst plugin folder. when i re installed cubase all was well. I have been using cubase for years and did not have this problem until i installed the e-mu 0404 pci card, or the audigy card
