OK, I've started all over again! So far I have reformatted my hard drive, installed Windows 7 from the original supplied program from computer manufacture. I have installed TMG version 8, then 8.08. I have loaded a backup file from that era. I have performed deletions, changes and adds and run Reindex, Optimize several times plus did a backup with NO ERRORS! In addition, I have created a GEDCOM file, which, appears to be complete at 5563 KB. I have since connected with the internet and did some further work... In Progress. I have yet to install my virus protection... That's next...


I have now installed McAfee virus protection and "Turned Off real time scanning ...." Also, I have not accomplished any Windows Updates.

When you install your virus protection, if possible find configuration options which will ensure the virus program does not touch or ever look at the TMG folders or subfolders where your project data is located.

See my book on how I customize TMG My Way.

I had some problems with missing *.DBF file.

The solutions for me was to turn off the realtime virus scanning when woking with TMG. (Using McAfee).

Another update... With my virus protection set at Programs and documents scan set on off, I have loaded version 9.03, deleted some of the same as in version 8.08, run a reindex, optimize with no problems. Also, I still haven't update any Windows items... I will do those one at a time.
