  1. Hi, Please, note this, if having problems with PC Pitstop OverDrive not starting due to ActiveX not loading. This has now come very essential with the Windows 10 half-yearly upgrades, as they do not anymore issue this folder! For the case ActiveX not coming up starting loading at all, it maybe due to, that there is no Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder existing, so, please -> Add it there, lol ... Now go on happy with testing! In case there may be some other problem, please check my earlier post on this -> Best regards, PeteVfi
  2. Hi, After from time to time facing and got struggling with the problem with OverDrive, not loading the ActiveX and got stuck on the first blank test window on ajaxscan, here you have some hints to be checked: -> Internet Explorer 11 -> Tools -> ActiveX-filtering -> Off -> Internet Settings -> General -> Browsing History -> Delete (with the first and last setting ticked -> Off(?)) -> Security -> Internet -> Default (Medium) -> Trusted Sites -> www pcpitstop.com -> Add If the above do not solve the problem, you may try also these hints: -> Tools -> Add-ons -> Critical ones -> Off (e.g. pop-up blockers etc.) -> Internet Settings -> General -> Browsing History -> Settings -> Show Objects -> Delete old PC Pitstop Components -> Security -> Internet -> Modified -> Allow ActiveX-filtering -> Off -> Run malware checking on ActiveX -> Off -> Enable pop-up blocking -> Off (seen somewhere lower there) -> Advanced Options -> Set options to default -> Set IE11 into default settings Addition 18.09.2017: -> Disable Virus Scanner and/or Firewall Addition 26.04.2018: For the case ActiveX not coming up for loading at all, it maybe due to, that there is no Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder existing, so, please, -> Add it there, lol ... Good luck on troubleshooting! Best regards, PeteVfi

    Disappointing Compared To Past Use

    As long as I am posting for technical support, I thought I would run a scan. I could not remember how to login, but probably would have been able to if the webmaster specified what the user ID consisted of, whole email address vs. just the part before the @.
  4. I ran the overdrive tests on a computer with windows 7 professional with IE 9. The tests completed successfully and went to the demographics page. When I clicked continue to see my results i got an error message. Is this just me or is there a geneneral problem with the site.
  5. Hello, i am attempting to run OverDrive but it seems to keep stalling at the first part of the scan/test before it even runs any tests. Just the screen where it shows me what step it is on. I am using Internet Explorer for that, as neptune is no longer recommended. My current IE version is 9, the latest version supported for my OS (vista), I have run the 64 bit version of IE and the normal version both in admin mode. At this point I am stuck on what to try. Thank you in advance for your help.

    No Access To Tech Express

    I just ran a full OverDrive test and the top of my browser showed a link to Tech Express; but when I copied it into my browser, it said that the ID was invalid. The OverDrive did not reveal anything that would have caused my Blue Screen Of Death that I encountered yesterday after I tried to bring my system out of hibernation. How can I get my results from OverDrive further analyzed?
  7. I keep getting the 'PC Pitstop utility did not load' message. I have tried all the tips. I allow the utility 'to make changes on my computer' when prompted, after initially allowing the download. I am using IE 9.0.8112.16421 on a Win 7 64-bit PC. I have tried both 32 and 64-bit versions of IE, including in compatibility mode. Any advice would be appreciated, as I really need a test. Cheers
  8. XP3, ATI 200 Xpress. Trying to run Overdrive When scan wouldn't run went to troubleshooting. Made ssome suggested chgs. When moved video accelerator slider to far left lost video. Screen not responding. No signal. Any suggestions? Have not rebooted.
