24/7 Slave Tech Support
|Dear Tech Support,
I have a problem. I have recently upgraded from "Casual Play Partner" Version 8.0 (V8.0) to "24/7 Slave V1.5" and although it at first seemed like a good idea (I didn't even have to officially register the software), it has since been very instable and caused a lot of problems.
First, the monitoring program has to be running at all times to make sure 'Slave' doesn't crash and this constant monitoring leaves little CPU for other programs to run.
| Second, after the first couple of times I ran it,
it started giving me those pop-up screens wanting me to 'officially
register it', I think those are called "nag-screens", nothing
about mandatory registration was mentioned in the manual.
Also, a lot of other programs are crashing due to insufficient resources, "My Office V2.3", "Game Room V1.1a" and "Guest Room V5.0" all will not run, I get some message like "insufficient space to perform operation" or something like that.
"Vanilla Friends for Dinner V2" and "Vanilla Night Out V6.9", will not even start up.
I cannot seem to keep 'Slave' in the background while attempting to run some of my other favorite applications. I have been trying to uninstall "24/7 Slave" several times but it seems to be all over my system, and it keeps coming back. I don't want to format the whole system and re-install everything...
Your complaints are quiet common but is mostly due to a common misconception. Many people upgrade from "Casual Play Partner Vx" to "24/7 Slave V1.5" with the idea the "24/7 Slave V1.5" is merely a UTILITIES & ENTERTAINMENT program.
"24/7 Slave V1.5" is an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by its creator to be an integral part of all system functions. It is unlikely you would be able to purge "24/7 Slave V1.5" and still convert back to "Casual Play Partner" as Hidden operating files within your system would cause "Casual Play Partner" to possibly emulate "24/7 Slave" and much of the system damage already caused to productivity programs is practically irreparable, so
nothing would likely be gained.
It is nearly impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program files from the system once installed. It is very difficult to revert back to "Casual Play Partner" without a total system format and starting over, possibly with new hardware.
Some have tried to install "Poly Program Manager V1.0" or "Wife 1.0" but very often end up with more problems than the original system. Look in your manual under 'Warnings-Legal' and 'Warnings-Hell on Earth'.
I recommend you keep "24/7 Slave V1.5" and just deal with the situation. I suggest installing the background system optimizing program "Now Lie in it! V1.0" to alleviate software augmentation and CPU problems.
Having "24/7 Slave V1.5" installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Safety Faults (GSF's). You must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might occur. Avoiding GSF's should be your greatest concern as an informed user.
When running "24/7 Slave V1.5" there are really only a few reasons the program doesn't work properly, even if 'properly' isn't exactly what you were expecting....
1) A faulty program. There are some versions of "24/7 Slave" which are coded wrong and/or mislabeled, which can masquerade as a legitimate "Slave" program. If you do get a hold of one of these faulty programs you can attempt to debug it your self but it might be best left to a professional to
2) User error. I know no one likes this option but "24/7 Slave V1.5" is a very demanding program. It can be very capable and functional but it is a difficult program to MASTER properly and to its fullest potential. My advice here would be to read all you can on the program and try very hard to use it properly.
3) Improper Program Selection. Maybe you didn't really want to install "24/7 Slave V1.5" in the first place and were mistaken for doing so. If this is the case the best option is to delicately try to remove the program, sometimes "Nice Cards V1" can help here but no matter what utilities you use it will be a delicate process so proceed with extreme caution to minimize the damage to all software involved.
The entire system will run much more smoothly as long as you vigorously try to avoid all GSF's.
"24/7 Slave V1.5" is a great program, but very high maintenance. Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of "24/7 Slave V1.5". I recommend "Floggers 2.1" and "Pain V9.0" to be VERY effective in keeping "24/7 Slave V1.5" running smoothly.
If you have a really good system with plenty of space and resources you might even want to install "Toilet Play V2" or "Electric Play Vx" and possibly "Suspension V1.0" but proceed with caution and read the manuals thoroughly as improper use of these programs can cause SEVERE system problems.
Do not, under any circumstances, install "Coming out to co-workers V1.0" as this will almost certainly result in lost productivity and possibly severe damage to the entire system. This is not a supported application for "24/7 Slave V1.5", "Casual Play Partner", or anything in the entire "BDSM" suite of applications and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.
Best of luck,
