IIRC Roboform has been mentioned in times past

Thanks, ducks. I went ahead and did a complete uninstall since it didn't work with my browser anyway.

Hopefully that will solve my crash problems.

Just wondering how you shut down RoboForm w/o uninstalling it entirely?

It doesn't' appear to run as a service. The only portion of it that shows up in task manager is the taskbar item. My guess is that piece should be fairly innocuous. The rest of RF seems to be implemented as plug-ins for the browsers (IE, FF, Chrome).

Has anyone been able to indite or clear RF as a suspect?

Are the any other apps, drivers, add-ins, etc. that have been identified as culprits?

Thanks,

CL

I googled and found this (right here at mobileread!!!)...

Quote:
Ok a little bit more. Roboform tries to attach itself to windows programs when they open. This seems to be the problem causing Calibre to shut down. Inside options in Roboform there is a section called Application Integration. Inside this section you can have Roboform automatically attach to Windows Applications. Also you can set up a black list of programs you don't want to automatically attach to Roboform. I put Calibre in the black list section so Roboform wouldn't try and attach to it. It seems to have fixed my shut down problems when converting with Calibre. Again I have done reboots to make sure the problem is repeteable and fixable with what I've done.

I have Roboform too. I will try the solution and let you know. It is on my computer and laptop too.

I've been editing metadata in Calibre for a couple of hours now and it's working perfectly (no crashes...yay). In my case, it was obviously the recently installed Roboform causing my problems.

What's really embarrassing is the Roboform issue and the solution is clearly described in the Calibre Manual FAQ's...gulp.

If Kovid is rolling his eyes at my posts, I can't say I would blame him lol.

In all fairness, Roboform was only identified in the last few weeks as an issue. See this post

Works here too!

Told RF to exclude C and that fixed it.

Great info.

Thanks

Roboform has a history of "interfering" with other software - Nuance voice to text and one of the big league OCR programs come to mind. My ex-employer (a very large global bank) got rid of it about 10 years ago - the IT auditors regarded it as a security threat :lol:

I'd never noticed before you mentioned that about the different RF versions. One computer I've never bothered to update RF on and it's still running version 6. Calibre never crashes on that computer. On my other one which always has RF updated, Calibre has been problematic occasionally which I had figured to be a font issue I couldn't track down.

In the past I've found RF to be pretty prompt in addressing reported crash issues and conflicts. Usually they have sent me beta versions to test within 48 hours to see if it cures it. I've filled out a support ticket so we'll see if they respond.
